Four bodies are found in New York City. Why, why, why? The coincidence? They all died 48 hours after logging on to a site named feardotcom.com. Tough detective Mike Reilly collaborates with Department of Health associate Terry Huston to research these mysterious deaths. The only way to find out though what really happened is to enter the site itself...Written by
I've sat through many a terrible film. Usually, I swallow some advil or Jack Daniels and soldier through like a good little movie buff. This film, however, was THE closest I've ever come to walking out. For those of familiar or unfamiliar with the plot, while investigating the ghostly visage of a little girl (dressed to the nines in her Sunday best, complete with accompanying bouncing ball) our protagonists track down the girl's mother. While interviewing this pinnacle of parenthood, the mother explains that her daughter was (1) a hemophiliac that (2) used to play, alone, dressed in her Sunday best (complete with her Wilson) at (3) the old, abandoned steel mill that was (4) conveniently located a mere mile away from the perfect suburban neighborhood. WHAT?!?! First, most female hemophiliacs don't survive past puberty (for hopefully obvious reasons). Second, what mother of a child in such a condition lets her daughter play in AN OLD ABANDONED STEEL MILL?!?!?! I've seen some mighty far-fetched plot contrivances in my day (e.g., the wolves in Day After Tomorrow comes immediately to mind) but this was terrible. I actually groaned. My displeasure was abated, however, by the rest of the audience (outside of me and 3 friends, the audience consisted of 4 other people -- opening night) revolted! That's right we no longer "watched" the movie as atomistic movie fans. Oh no. We banded together to fight back this cinematic horror MST3K style. So, for all those willing to sit through one of my Top 5 Worst Movies Ever, go for it. Just make sure you have plenty of friends around to mock the movie with. Its the only appropriate response to this piece of crap.
