For an initiation stunt, five college women are locked in a Kentucky hospital built in 1910 where 63,000 people died from a disease known as the "white plague". Deep under the hospital is the "Death Tunnel" which once were used to secretly remove the dead from the grounds.
Four bodies are found in New York City. Why, why, why? The coincidence? They all died 48 hours after logging on to a site named feardotcom.com. Tough detective Mike Reilly collaborates with Department of Health associate Terry Huston to research these mysterious deaths. The only way to find out though what really happened is to enter the site itself... Written by
In pre-production the website featured in the film was called Fear.com, despite the producers not owning that website in real-life. They had hoped to buy the domain name from its owners at the time, but were told that it was not for sale at any price, leading to the website's name in the film being changed to Feardotcom.com.

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.
