The Fear 1997 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
The year of 1995 is when I originally saw the Fear as a young kid. Over the years I’ve had a desire to revisit a lot of these old horror films I’d seen years before to know if they were as bad as I remembered. The answer is yes there are. I decided to dedicate some evenings to watch & review them again leading to an influx of b horror reviews in my profile. I had previously declared Grim as one of the worst I’ve seen, but the Fear is giving it some serious competition.
The premise of the film is centered around “fear therapy.” Richard, a psychology major, decides to put together a group of random students and bring them to his childhood cabin in the woods to run some tests. These tests are to extract the fears out of these folks while telling them to Morty his wooden puppet. Apparently Morty scared the piss out of him as a kid and he thought this was a genius idea to use it as a teaching device. The film drags on and on until Morty finally comes to life proving he is the biggest fear they have, stalking them at every turn. If you can stay awake to see it.
Yet another film that I really wanted to make myself like but just couldn’t. It really is one of the most boring “horrors” out there. The acting was the only scary thing about it causing extreme laughter at certain points. Even Wes Craven made an appearance in maybe his worst move to date. He plays Richards’ college professor Dr. Arnold and is in the film for about 5 minutes total. He must have been doing it as a favor to the director. All in all The Fear is really awful. I can’t even recommend it for the b enthusiasts out there.
