Fear Itself: Above Average Satisfying Horror Series
13 July 2016 | by (Oregon, US) – See all my reviews

Now available on Netflix, this TV series features various supernatural as well as suspense thriller motives. Almost every disk comes with four episodes, containing a little bit of different genres, with metaphysical/mystical themes or murders with a twist.

The theme song of the series is very charming and evocative, reminiscent of the Creature Feature kind of style for those readers familiar with it.

The arrangement of the episodes, two on each side, is a little peculiar by modern standards and the menu navigation is a little cumbersome, but the plots themselves are often worth the trouble and managed to surprise me with their twist unlike most detective stories which I can solve within minutes of reading or watching. In contrast, the occasional subtlety of Fear Itself allows the answers to remain hidden for a while longer.

In my opinion, such unpredictable twists of the murder mysteries along with the variety of the truly supernatural kinds of horror make for a delightful pastime.

Although structurally the episodes are not connected, each following an entirely independent cast of characters and plot lines, I can appreciate why some episodes were placed together based on their thematic similarity or, conversely, opposition.

Overall, I really like this series but I don't think I could like it as much if I expected another Twilight Zone(which it is certainly not, lacking a host) or R.L Stine's Haunting Hour(because each episode of Fear Itself is longer). Every story is either interesting or has potential and definitely takes its time to develop the escalation of terror, very similarly to a full feature film.

I hope after reading my review you guys would at least consider the very first disk, because it had, what I consider to be, the most brilliant episode of the entire series and if you don't like even it, you would know with relative surety that Fear Itself is not for you(I don't even have to spoil your fun by naming it or numbering it because when you see it, you'll know exactly which one I meant!).
