Crazy Credits

The title scene is a black screen with the title in the middle in a white, powder-like substance inside a white-outlined football. The title then swirls around and blends together while retreating from the camera. After multiple scenes showing different settings with what would be usually the open credits, it shows the same title scene again before end credits. See more »

Senseless Supernatural Mess
28 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

Dr. John Chambers (Brian Krause) moves to the countryside of Pennsylvania with his pregnant wife Heather Chambers (Jaimi Paige) and their seven-year old son Nathan. Two weeks later, his teenage son Ben Chambers (Jared Abrahamson) comes to his house since he was expelled from college. John begins to have astral travels and daydreams with shadow people and realizes that he is experiencing sleep paralysis. When Nathan sees also the people, he concludes that there is a dark secret in the place.

"Be Afraid" is a senseless supernatural messy film, with a promising but totally wasted storyline. There is no explanations and the one dimension characters are not developed from the beginning and the viewer, for example, never knows why Ben was expelled from the college. Or why the sheriff hides the danger of the shadow people. And even their motives abducting children. In the end, watching "Be Afraid" is a waste of time with fake reviews promoting this flick in IMDb. My vote is two.
