Review – Lurking Fear: Re-mastered

film reviews | movies | features | BRWC Review - Lurking Fear: Re-mastered

Lurking Fear can only be described as a B-movie. Telling the tale of a town ravaged by humanoid creatures lurking underneath a church whilst terrorising the town above. When thieves cross those trying to put an end to the horror, things get a little more complicated.

Re-mastered and released, much like the monsters in this tale, Lurking Fear remains at the bedrock of the horror genre; yet, that in itself might be this films truly redeeming feature. The pretense is terrible, the application even worse, and there are no two ways about it, the acting is poor. Ashley Laurence (Hellraiser) gives one of the few decent performances, but ultimately the script and direction did nothing to help.

Nonetheless, and despite the fact that the beginning of this film was so poor it almost made me turn it off, I grew to like Lurking Fear as it went on. At less than eighty minutes, Lurking Fear is just long enough that we can all laugh and enjoy a truly, truly terrible film, for everything that it is and not have the experience drawn out and ruined. Lurking Fear doesn’t hide from what it is, and I don’t think the actors or directors do either. It is a B-movie, it knows it’s a B-movie and that name sums up this film completely.

Worth every inclusion in a B-movie and beer marathon Lurking Fear is exactly what it thinks it is and if that’s what you enjoy, you’ll love this film.

Films, games, Godzilla and Scott Pilgrim; these are the things that Alex loves. As he tries to make use of the fact he’s always staring at a screen or in a book, you’ll hopefully be treated to some good reviews along the way (though he doesn’t promise anything).
