The Future isn't the only thing to Fear
27 February 1999 | by See all my reviews

Talk about your bad B movies. Future Fear is basically a three person show with scenes cribbed from other movies. Pay close attention to the trailers on the New Horizons video cassette. In the trailer for Eruption, there are scenes of Latin American extras running from an erupting volcano crowding the streets. In the middle of Future Fear, the film makers use the same scene of Latin Americans running from an erupting volcano to demonstrate the effects of mass panic of the citizens who are fleeing from a deadly virus that has been brought back by a comet. The whole movie must consist of under an hour with extra scenes from other Roger Corman New Horizon films padding out the film to a turgid eighty minute length. The plot? Jeff Wincott has created a cure for the virus, but wife Maria Ford's loyalty is for the Government led by a fascist Stacy Keach, and spends time running around the New Horizons office building trying to kill Jeff Wincott. If you ever want to see a film that quotes from Alice in Wonderland and Lewis Carroll's Jabberwocky then this it. One good scene however. In a flashback scene, Jeff Wincott and Maria Ford recreate the Mad Hatter's tea party. I don't know why, but that is an inspired scene. Too bad it lasts a few moments. The movie itself seems to last a lifetime.
