Audience Reviews for Fever

Psychological thriller that has great visuals and a strong performance by Henry Thomas as the "is he crazy or isn't he" lead character supported well by Sam Neill. The script, though establishing a strong atmosphere of mystery in the beginning, can't sustain its momentum as it reverts to cliches of the genre within its final acts.

A very average thirller that really does nothing for standing out on its own. The directing was average, the story was par and the acting was nothing to brag about. Some of the characters were all the same though, not the besr character work. Thomas was the only one that put some effort into the role and actually looked sick as hell. An ok time consumer for a rainy evening.

Hallucinatory psychological thriller has great visuals and a strong performance by Henry Thomas as the "is he crazy or isn't he" lead character. However the script, though establishing a strong atmosphere of mystery in the beginning, can't sustain its momentum as it reverts to cliches of the genre within its final acts.
