Storyline

Time of Fear is a taut psychological thriller thrusting an FBI agent and a grieving father into the dark world of a demented killer. FBI Agent Cheryl Hammer, arrives in a small California town to catch an elusive killer. Seeing no help forthcoming from the Sheriff, she turns to the only other person who can help her, Jack Barone, a grieving father whose daughter, Lisa, was the victim of a similar slaying ten years prior. The killer's clues are a perversion of Biblical punishments for sins: stoning, burning, decapitation. Jack and Agent Hammer turn to Father Patrick, a Catholic priest, for help. As the clock ticks down, a young female friend of Jack's is kidnapped and may become the next casualty. The harrowing rescue of the young woman opens the door to a dark history hidden below the surface, revealing the true identity of the killer and answering the mystery of who killed Jack's daughter.

An exciting new take on film noir
2 January 2006 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

Obviously working with serious budget constraints -- not to mention what seems to have been a mandate to include a measure of nudity -- this film approaches "film noir" in a very European way.

The storyline of an outsider with a past working outside the law to find a serial killer is clearly a metaphor for a kind of "outsider" film-making. The result is troubling yet striking, with a visual sense and an editing design that breath fresh life into low-budget cinema.

As to the performances, Nick Mancuso and Cheryl Pollak lead a strong cast. And whoever thought of using Solomon Burke deserves a pat on the back. Which leads to the music, which is awesome!
