Not long after John Chambers and his family arrive at their new home in a small country town of Pennsylvania, John begins to experience sleep paralysis. Lying there paralyzed, trapped within his own nightmare, other-worldly beings visit John. They are entities which exist in the darkest shadows of the night and can only be seen out of the corner of one's eye. These encounters begin to haunt John, transforming to complete terror as he discovers the entities' sole purpose... the abduction of his seven year old son, Nathan
The subject for this one isn't quite overused, I do like the approach, bold, but the only thing standing in its way was clearly the budget.
Perhaps with more funds they would have been able to produce something far better, a horror for the masses, like this tho it shall remain mostly unknown and unappreciated. Quite the shame because the people involved did a good work and if you do watch it, you'll see that is an OK indie production.
Is it recommendable? I don't think so. You won't be afraid, but you will forget about it in a few days top. With more money, Be Afraid could have delivered far better. Overall 4 stars out of 10 from me. Do not look for horror here. Just a pretty good written story.
