not good, not bad
12 May 2010 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

After the success of a movie you can count on sequels. After the success of masters of horror you could expect the same. Mick Garris, the man after masters scripted a whole new series with so called famous directors. In fact, the directors used didn't came from the horror genre. And that was already blamed by the geeks out there. Whatever, Fear Itself was broadcasted and is now here in Europe out on DVD. First thing I noticed was the price of the first season, it was cheaper then a normal DVD. So far so good but would that say that it is rubbish. First of all, the effects used were very good, on the credits I saw the name Nicotero, do I have to say more? The story was quite good, it doesn't become a real horror movie, it isn't that scary, it was okay for a director not in the genre. But still it can't overrule an episode of Masters of Horror. It isn't bloody or gory by any means. It was okay, a bit in the style of Ginger Snaps or Jennifer's Body, you know what I mean, not for the geeks but for a starter.
