Storyline

It's death-by-fear (aka scared-to-death) in this deceptively psychological thriller. The hero, Mike brings his friends to his grandparents' house for a Halloween party wherein they will all dress up as their innermost fears. Mike's fear is that he's inherited a homicidal legacy from his father. Mike's father was a serial killer who murdered his mother right in front of him when Mike was five before committing suicide. Mike's fear manifests itself in his inability to commit to his girlfriend of 4 1/2 years, Peg for fear that he will kill her too. Everything gets rolling when an ancient Indian totem wooden figure named Morty comes to life and starts killing off Mike's friends by making their worst fears come true. The ultimate confrontation comes when Mike has to face his greatest fear - his own father. Written by Kevin Richards <kevinrichards@aol.com>

I don't think they'll be making The Fear 3.
29 October 1999 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

STAR RATING:*****Unmissable.****Very Good.***Okay.**You Could Go Out For A Meal Instead.*Avoid At All Costs.

I really should have learned my lesson by now.Horror sequels,no matter how interesting they may sound or how good their intentions may be,never work.

And this heap big pile of babababooshka meant one of the worst halloween night movies I'd had the displeasure of having out in ages.I should have got The Faculty out instead.

I only saw it because I remembered seeing the original ages ago,and was interested in seeing what wonders a sequel could toss up.Well,in some parts,dull,predictable,seen-it-all-before cliches were thrown up like anything.I mean,quarter of the way into it,I was left unimpressively baffled.Wow.He attacks his nutty father's tombstone with an axe,and,when he and his lover walk away,wow,it starts to bleed.How scary.(Bram Stoker's Dracula,anyone?)

And that scene with the snake in the forest was pathetically stupid.A snake could'nt survive in those temperatures.Pah.

On the charecter front,I was most amused by those 2 sexy blonde chicks (one displaying leather trousers I wanted to go up and slap very hard on the bum.)I spent the final half of the movie staring amourously at them.

But then,onto good old Morty.

In the original,he was a tortured,sympathetic horror creation who you grew to like towards the end.In this shambles of a sequel,a complete waste of time and money for everyone,he's a metamorphosising,crass,cack handed man like beast ,who quotes tired one liners on his hapless victims.I actually thought he looked like Dolph Lundgren a bit in the cupboard.

Sequels to excellent,sucessful horror films have stank (Candyman 2,An American Werewolf In Paris),but sequels to unknown,unappreciated horror flicks like The Fear are just torture to sit through.I just absolutely could not wait for this to be over.

Utterly unscary,paceless and boring,I would deter you from renting this movie as your halloween treat.*
