Thank you, Pruitt Taylor Vince
23 February 2006 | by (Zurich, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

Movies like this one are sold here as German-dubbed video cassettes so cheap you practically can't refuse to buy them. „Fear" was a pleasant surprise, a psycho (or rather psychic) thriller with clear references to several Hitchcock movies and also reminiscent of Italian giallos. All the elements are there: the suspense, dream sequences, absurd humorous situations, innocent victims and many people who don't believe what you tell them, however hard you try. The story is simple but it works. And there is an excellent, beautifully filmed finale on a fairground (remember „Strangers on a Train?"). The biggest treat is Pruitt Taylor Vince as the psychopath killer who sees the tables turned on him. What a talent! Why, why, why doesn't he get more and bigger roles??
