User Reviews

 
Little production, with a lot of potential.
11 June 2017 | by Patient444See all my reviews

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.

Cheers!
