In Fear is the story of a young, new couple who are on their way to a music festival in Ireland and decide to stay over night at a remote hotel. Unfortunately, their trip takes a serious downturn when they get lost in the maze of country roads on route. Just when they think that it couldn't get any worse, they soon realise that someone - or something - is toying with them.
This actually isn't too bad of a wee film, but it unfortunately just fails to really hit the mark, especially for the 2nd half. The 1st half of the movie does well, building up a nice bit of suspense, and drawing you into the story. It does a good job at kind of making you feel claustrophobic with the small, narrow dark roads the couple travel down and also being inside a car for a lot of the time. Having driven down country roads like this myself in Scotland I know how it can feel. Also, with them being in such a remote part of the country brings it's own feel to the movie as well.
The 2nd half of the movie, however, doesn't really build up on this and it kind of stalls along the way. It actually gets a wee bit repetitive at times as well with the couple seemingly just driving around in circles. The actors do a pretty good job with what they have, and along with a good couple of creepy moments, In Fear is, like I say, not too bad of a film.
It's not the best movie I've seen but it's definitely not the worst either.
