    Strange, how good feardotcom is, and how bad. The screenplay is a mess, and yet the visuals are so creative this is one of the rare bad films you might actually want to see.

    Never quite realizes its potential to evoke the real horror of the Internet -- Yet, Malone has given the film a distinctive atmosphere and occasional flashes of his perverse sense of humor.
  3. As scary and minor-chord heavy as FearDotCom can be, there's no big payoff, no logical resolution.
  4. 20
    Shameless exercise in high-tech sadism.
  5. 20
    Would have made a hell of a short -- but falls flat on its hyperstylized face as a feature.
  6. 10
    A depraved, incoherent, instantly disposable piece of hackery.
  7. The film is a failure in just about every way, save for its acting, which is adequate.

    Despite what people had to say about it, I really enjoyed this horror flick. I liked the creepy special effects and strange imagery. The Despite what people had to say about it, I really enjoyed this horror flick. I liked the creepy special effects and strange imagery. The actors weren't too shabby and the music was rather enjoyable. It may not have a mind-blowing plot, but I was kept interested throughout the film. Despite the negativity, I still really liked it.

    It's a bad sign when the highlight of your movie is when the stream starts buffering. I don't think I've seen a movie this lame since OneIt's a bad sign when the highlight of your movie is when the stream starts buffering. I don't think I've seen a movie this lame since One Missed Call. FeardotCom follows two detectives, Mike and Terry, who investigate a series of murders that all link back to the awkwardly named feardotcom.com. If you visit the site, you die in 48 hours unless you can solve its mystery. Sound familiar? This movie is a complete rip-off of The Ring, except this has a two day time limit instead of a week, and it's a haunted website instead of a videotape. The "big reveal" at the end is incredibly similar to the one in The Ring, which makes this a very predictable thriller. Somehow, despite the fact that this "thriller" has so many inconsistent and just plain stupid twists, it managed to still bore me to tears. Everything about FeardotCom is so pathetic and lazy, from the laughable writing to the mediocre acting, that there just isn't anything to enjoy about this almost infuriatingly insipid film. Expand
