F.E.A.R. – Review

F.E.A.R.

When Ethan (Jason Tobias) and Josephine Allister (Marci Miller) met it was love at first sight. Soon they were married and started having children and everything was going really well. They had a son named Josh (Danny Ruiz) and although life is good for the Allisters, life does like to throw challenges at people when they least expect it. That’s when there was a zombie virus outbreak.

Now, Ethan, Joe and Josh live their lives one day at a time and try to survive. Although when they meet Desiree Morrow (Susan Moore Harmon) and her son, Lincoln (Justin Dray) they realise that there are others out there willing to do horrible things to make their way in the new world.

F.E.A.R. (Forget Everything and Run) is a zombie movie written by Jason Tobias and co-directed by Geoff Reisner. In the past ten years there has been a resurgence in the zombie genre, shows like The Walking Dead, iZombie and Santa Clarita Diet have all redefined what it means to be one of the unliving.



Then there are games like The Last of Us, Days Gone and Dying Light and although there seems to be room for a lot in this genre, there are signs it may have run its course.

This is particularly obvious in F.E.A.R.’s plot and characters as it plays like an extended episode of The Walking Dead or some DLC of The Last of Us which introduces new characters in a familiar setting.

There really is nothing new or original to see in F.E.A.R. and if you are a fan of the genre then there’s no doubt that you’ve seen it all before. Although for those looking for a horror movie where you know what you’re going to get before you’ve seen it then F.E.A.R. will do everything you want.

The production value and the cast all give the audience the feeling of a world where an outbreak has permanently changed the landscape. Although considering how 2020 went and how the world realised what a viral outbreak could do and how we all adapted, F.E.A.R. shows that a zombie outbreak may just be quite straightforward and lacking any excitement.

Joel found out that he had a talent for absorbing film trivia at a young age. Ever since then he has probably watched more films than the average human being, not because he has no filter but because it’s one of the most enjoyable, fulfilling and enriching experiences that a person can have. He also has a weak spot for bad sci-fi/horror movies because he is a huge geek and doesn’t care who knows it.
