Trivia

Writer/director C. Courtney Joyner had a lot of problems working with Jon Finch. Finch wouldn't even listen to the basic directorial commands such as "cut" or "action" and wanted to do things for his character of Bennett his way. Joyner has said that he regrets not being more in control as a director, and has gone on to say that he chalks it up as one of his rookie mistakes. See more »

Bad, bad, "bad"
24 November 2002 | by (Washington) – See all my reviews

I am always up for a "bad" horror flick. It is generally entertaining, what with pointing out inconsistencies and laughing at the bad monster effects. However, I was not laughing when I saw "Lurking Fear." This was easily the worst "bad" horror movie I've ever seen! The inconsistencies were atrocious, the effects particularly poorly done, and the foley... don't even get me started! As far as Full Moon movies go, this one is a particularly bad example. I have only one "lurking" question remaining... What happened to the baby?
