Movie Info

What if there was a company you could call that, for a premium, will bring your greatest fears to life? You don't have to leave your house, your office, or your vacation; the scares are customized to your tastes and arrive at your doorstep when you least expect it. But like texting an ex at 2am, what sounds like a great idea at the time, can end up getting you killed. When horror movie enthusiast, Joe Foster (Lucas Neff) and his girlfriend, Lindsey Gains (Caitlin Stasey), are handed a business card for such a company, Joe's curiosity gets the best of him. As the Fear, Inc experience seemingly begins, scares start popping up right out of Joe's favorite horror movies, quickly turning him into a kid in a candy store; if the kid was a self righteous thirty year old and the candy store was the prop room from SAW. After a friend explains the company's dangerous reputation, his rollercoaster of a journey goes from light hearted fun to uncomfortably realistic as things take a major turn for the worse. Joe's sense of reality spirals out of control as he's forced to take responsibility for his actions, no matter the cost.

Critic Reviews for Fear, Inc.

All Critics (8)

Ultimately, the irony here is that Fear, Inc. is about a horror fan wanting to feel something, anything, yet doesn't offer this courtesy to its viewers.

By my count, the film manages at least five ties to wrench the audience from one false sense of certainty to another, but by number three, you just don't care anymore. In this case, familiarity just breeds tedium.

this meta-horror... nails the contradictory mindset of the horror viewer, while hilariously double-, triple- and quadruple-bluffing the reality effects that lovers of scary movies crave to give their horror 'edge'.

Fear Inc. wastes a devious idea on a slew of reveals that bring momentum to a crushing halt.

Director Vincent Masciale clearly scored one great location (the fancy house), and uses it to its maximum potential, which is the dream of all budding auteurs. Yet he fails to make it look all that interesting.

October 21, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

A "Scream" knockoff, and an easily fatigued one at that.

Audience Reviews for Fear, Inc.

Not so much "Horror Comedy" as genuinely funny horror.
