The Fear Review

Image for The Fear

A weekend group goes to a remote cabin for "fear therapy". While each person is working to conquer their worst fears, they all become terrorized by a living monster made of wood which stalks each of them in turn.


A confused and confusing horror picture which suffers from having to many ingredients. Wes Craven cameos as a psychology lecturer who packs off a troubled pupil to the woods to hold a seminar on phobias, only to trigger long-buried memories of murder and magic. The horror character, a desperate franchise wannabe named Morty, is an animated wooden figure who looks quite eerie but sadly moves like a man in a suit, and there are sub-plots about possession, a campus rapist, incest and Santa Claus’ evil brother.

Cheesy as hell, and not very scary.
