Face The Fear!
14 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

A good honest TV Horror movie. Clea DuVall plays Cassie, a girl who at the age of 7 was traumatised by her kidnapping and imprisonment in a dingy basement. 20 years later at grad school, Cassie is struggling to finish her thesis on time, so takes up a job as as fire-watch warden out in the forest so as to earn some money while having the peace and calm to finish her project. But soon the isolation brings back traumas she though had long since past, more so when it appears that someone or some thing is definitely out to get her.

It's a pretty shaky premise, the whole face your fear factor in the name of setting up a horror story, asking of us a giant leap of faith to believe Cassie really would go live out in the woods on her own. While the narrative plays its hand way too early, something which doesn't help the sub-standard resolution. However, there's some good scares and originality thrown in for good measure, while DuVall is a good value actress when it comes to portraying the various stages of fight and flight. 6.5/10
