Fear Dot Com (2002)

6 Ratings: -0.3
A movie directed by William Malone

Fear Dot Comis a total-dot-mess, but it's a stylishly graphic frightfest that horror buffs will probably appreciate. As he did with his 1999 remake ofHouse on Haunted Hill, director William Malone favors trippy atmosphere at the expense of acting, … see full wiki

Fear Dot Com
A premise of a website that can absorb psychic energy and project it back out of your computer is ripe with potential but falls short in it's execution. Using a similar plotline to The Ring but using a website instead of a video tape, Fear-Dot-Com does not have the suspense or the mystery that The Ring had. The most notable fault is the editing, jerking from one scene to the next without proper flow, and the speed-shot flashes are too fast and too disjointed to have any impact on the viewer. There …

"Feardotcom" is why contemporary horror films have such a bad reputation. It's a by-the-numbers take on the ol' haunted Internet yarn, complete with a ludicrous misunderstanding of basic technology. The movie depends on its viewers to have no idea how the Internet works, and probably even what it is. I don't mind highly improbable story, but there is a limit.

Most of the supernatural horror happens toward …

I could barely wait for this movie to be over.

FEAR DOT COM tries so hard that it is embarassing. The script to this quasi-thriller is pedestrian at best, predictable, and just plain awful at worst. There is little point to the story and even that little idea - that connecting a lot of computers together can result in communal energy that creates sick, deadly consequences - is trampled to death (pardon the pun). It never ceases to amaze me how actors of the caliber of Stephen Rea can log on to duds like this. The only reason to rent this film …
