“Similar to those magic eye paintings, everything on the surface appears to be status quo. But when you stare closer there's a hidden majestic beast of direct to video madness inside.” — belial_carboni, LETTERBOXD
A quintessential 1990s indie horror film from the video store canon, THE FEAR blends the uncanny-valley creepiness of PIN: A PLASTIC NIGHTMARE with ELM STREET-influenced shocks — including a cameo by Wes Craven! College student Richard decides to study the subject of human fear, and invites a friend group to participate in a homegrown experimental project at his family’s mountain cabin. The experiment is harmless at first -- until Richard reveals what he's really afraid of: Morty. You see, Morty’s a lifelike and life-sized wooden carving of a man that’s lived in the cabin for generations!
