Stay Away From This Movie

If you even think about going to see the "horror masterpiece" Feardotcom, I urge you to take off your shoes, stay at home and stare at the wall. You will be much more entertained. Trust me.

The directors and producers forgot about several things. First being a decent script. The second, having quality actors. Third, estabishing mood lighting for a 'scary movie' instead of having everything take place in a dark room or two.

Part of the movie takes place via digital cameras. It worked for The Blair Witch Project. It kinda worked for Halloween 8. It did not work here.

William Malone, the director, favored CGI over story telling. Too many of the "scares" were laughable, too many of the scenes pointless.The only saving grace for my $5.50 was the trailer for "Ghost Ship" before the movie.

The lead actress, Natascha McElhone,looks like a cross between Crystal Gayle and Meryl Streep, with the acting ablitiy of Tawny Kitaen. She's just that bad.

Stephen Dorff emotes like a wood board. Only one expression for fear, confusion, and insanity.

Please, I urge you to say home and stare at the wall. Save your money. You will thank me in the end.
