A take-off on "The Blair Witch Project," in which a guy finds out that his supposedly dead brother isn't dead after all when he sees him on the Internet. It's all about his spooky adventures in finding the truth.
A TV show from the five-member Haxan Films team (consisting of Eduardo Sanchez, Daniel Myrick, Robin Cowie, Gregg Hale, and Mike Manello) collaborated with screenwriter David S. Goyer, whose credits include Blade, Dark City, The Crow: City of Angels, and The Puppet Masters about a webmaster who looks for the weirdness and shares it with his internet viewers. Just like "The Blair Witch" did, 'Fearsum' has a website that Derek Barnes is the webmaster of. Written by
Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night thinking something is in your house? You know, heard a noise you couldn't quite make out? So you get up, turn the whole damn place upside-down, 'cause you gotta make sure that your little world is still safe and sound, still just the way you left it? That ever happen to you, Mr. Barnes?
Well, now suppose that all those times you thought you heard a footstep, or flash of something out of the corner of your eye, you really did.

I had vaguely heard about this show when it aired, but since it was extremely elusive (and I was sick of "Blair Witch," which Fox used as the main selling point) I missed out. Three years later, I get my hands on the episodes...What a waste! This show could have been so, so good! I'll bet if they'd given it a chance and "introduced" it on a Sunday, it would have hooked in a bigger audience.
But yeah, the stories were great, the actors were great, there was potential for a lot of development...Someone mentioned Derek's "Get her!" attitude, citing Ghostbusters and I cracked up. Someone should petition for a DVD, even if it's just a bare-bones 13-episode set without features. Though commentary by the actors and crew would probably be hysterical.
