Time of Fear is a taut psychological thriller thrusting an FBI agent and a grieving father into the dark world of a demented killer. FBI Agent Cheryl Hammer, arrives in a small California town to catch an elusive killer. Seeing no help forthcoming from the Sheriff, she turns to the only other person who can help her, Jack Barone, a grieving father whose daughter, Lisa, was the victim of a similar slaying ten years prior. The killer's clues are a perversion of Biblical punishments for sins: stoning, burning, decapitation. Jack and Agent Hammer turn to Father Patrick, a Catholic priest, for help. As the clock ticks down, a young female friend of Jack's is kidnapped and may become the next casualty. The harrowing rescue of the young woman opens the door to a dark history hidden below the surface, revealing the true identity of the killer and answering the mystery of who killed Jack's daughter.

Not the very best ...
30 December 2005 | by joeballSee all my reviews

I saw this movie yesterday and I was not impressed.

The story is okay but not great; something about serial killers, bible and sex is a well-known cocktail. I know from other movies that the actors are more than capable but here they are just wasted. The screenplay and/or editing is simply killing the story. Too often, the necessary link from one scene to the next is just missing. For instance: you have our heroes sitting in the planning room at the police station, looking at a million pictures of the slaughtered girls and getting more and more desperate. One even throws his hands in the air and almost start crying. In the next shot, they are out driving, and the man from before is now completely calm and composed.

I can't recommend this movie to anyone as a thriller, but if you're into beautiful female attributes then there are at least two shots in this movie that you're gonna like and like a lot. 'Nuff said !
