From terrorist kidnappings to supernatural evil, this trailer for I Am Fear certainly tries hard

1 min read

We’ve seen the horror genre throw a supernatural element into almost every theme imaginable, though I must say that an attempt to merge the already terrifying nature of a terrorist kidnapping with some form of supernatural plot might just be a first. At least you can’t blame this new film, I Am Fear, for not trying to be original.

What starts out as a political thriller that could possibly explore the inner workings of a terrorist sleeper cell and the nightmare that their victims experience in this scenario, quickly takes a different turn when it tries to introduce an ancient evil into the storyline. So, I guess you could say I Am Fear certainly has a lot going for it:

Sadly though, that is where it ends. What this film may try and gain through some form of originality, it lacks hopelessly in execution as this trailer contains absolutely none of the dread or drama you would expect from a film such as this and rather than utilising its great terrorism edge to bolster the tension, it looks to rely on cheap thrills. And that’s being nice because some of the acting and dialogue on offer here is cringeworthy.

I Am Fear is directed by Kevin Shulman and features a cast that includes several stars of other really bad horror films like Kristina KlebeBill Moseley, William Forsythe, Eoin Macken, Faran Tahir, and Christian Oliver. Needless to say, if you end up watching this film, the horror might be on you, because the only thing that looks scary about this film is its execution.

    This is a wack and lazy review. Did you even watch this film. Youre not accurately relaying the plot at all and youre giving spoilers but also inaccurately…Quickly takes a turn to an ancient evil. You only watched the trailer and it obvious. Also you slam Eoin Macken? hes in one horror film and is a mainstream TV star. Faran Tahir is from Star Trek and has literally never even been in a horror film. Its like youre talking about another film. I saw this at one of three theaters it was playing at and it literally blew me away. Nothing in your review actually corroborates that you saw the film. Get your facts straight…you unprofessionally give spoilers then slam respected actors when you don’t even know their work. Also….the execution is like the best part about this movie….Bro…you’re a Hack sorry man.

      It seems pretty obvious to me he’s talking about the trailer.

        Comrade. No. Simply No….
        The title of your “review” is referential contextually to the media clip you posted….the REVIEW itself claims to be of the film itself… and this is a fact . When you make misleading statements like that of “as an entertainment website we are privy to early reviews of films” in explaining your ability to do such, you sorta give your intentions away. This is a BS site…what kinda person or “Writer” reviews an already abbreviated clip of a film then what…. guesses what the movie would be like? Then lies about it?

        So you’re a Cyberbully of Pravda and film, no?

      Um, this is a TRAILER post. He never said he watched the film. I suggest you read a little slower, least you look like an idiot criticising one of our writers for something completely unrelated.

    also you just posted a review of The Hunt? huh? its not out yet….but the backlink to all the publicity its receiving sure will like well back this site. Also The hunt and I am Fear are both mentioned in a ScreenRant article so basically this is all just you capitalizing on increasing the sites SEO rank. Dont Quit your day job bro.

      As an entertainment website we are privy to early reviews of movies, as many do. I have no clue what you are on about re our SEO, but I suggest you leave out the personal attacks on this site. Thanks.
