Incomprehensible
17 January 2003 | by TheEtherWalkSee all my reviews

About halfway through the movie, I was actually considering giving this a 4, but the complete and utter lack of reasoning in this movie that made me give it a 1 I will now try to sum up.

The ghost made a website that people can log (and start hallucinating from) onto only 48 hours later they will be dead unless they find her body so she can exact revenge on someone who killed her on another website that people subscribe to, even though she kills other people in car crashes and train accidents who had no involvement with her death.

Things I learned from FearDotCom:

-Ghosts are capable of creating websites.

-The internet is inherently evil.

-People who use the internet are freaks.

-People who use the internet are incapable of closing their eyes.

-A bunch of weird images on a computer can drive someone crazy and make them hallucinate.

-A bunch of weird images on a movie can drive someone so crazy that they hallucinate so they think what they are watching makes one ounce of logical sense.

Obviously the producers of this movie wanted the audience to be driven insane by the film and have shut off our brains by the time the "ending" has arrived. Sadly, I was still conscious at the end which didn't explain anything and only dropped my score from a 4 to a 1.

And it's a very boring movie too. Did I mention this movie sucks?
