Film Review - Fear (2023)


Director Deon Taylor’s filmography doesn’t inspire much faith in his abilities, recently helming the stillborn chiller “Fatale,” and the wretched comedy, “The House Next Door: Meet the Blacks 2.” Taylor’s been able to keep his career going with low budgets and minimal expectations, and such career ambition returns in “Fear,” which was filmed over two years ago, looking to capture the dread and paranoia of the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. Like many genre pictures these days, Taylor and co-writer John Ferry keep things small and manageable, offering a few characters locked inside a remote location, with the idea here being anxiety, as a group of friends encounter trouble from beyond, with their deepest fears brought to life as they fight to survive encroaching madness. At least that’s what should be happening in “Fear,” but Taylor and Ferry get lost with this impotent chiller, trying to tap into something ill-defined, using all the hacky horror moves they can muster to keep 15 minutes of story going for 90 minutes of tedium.
