Critics Consensus

As frustrating as a 404 error, Fear Dot Com is a stylish, incoherent, and often nasty mess with few scares.

    A very scary\twisted horror flick about a killer website with very good scares\scenes.

    Fear Dot Com has often been dismissed as one of the worst horror films to be seen. Well I can say with that it's a fact that there are far worst films the Horror genre has produced over the years. Obviously the main reason that this film is dismissed so easily is that it shares similar plot lines to The Ring (which came out the same year, the American remake that is). Getting back to this film, I thought it was enjoyable enough to kill time and it was entertaining. However like everyone else, I thought the plot and acting was pretty thin. But as a popcorn horror film, this film works. Obviously not the best film, but with putting into focus all the other horror films that have come out in recent times, Fear Dot Com doesn't deserve all the flack it has received. The ideas presented in the film have been used before, but still the concept seems interesting. I personally think that the idea of dying in seven days has many angles to a good story. With The Ring it was a video cassette with Fear Dot Com, it's a website. Both films are good and very entertaining in my book. I wouldn't call Fear Dot Com great, but I would call it a pleasant time waster, which is what it is. This film is way better than a lot of trash in horror nowadays, most notably My Soul To Take. Fear Dot Com is the type of that you have to shut your brain off to enjoy. Mindless entertainment.

    This is truly the worst movie ever made

    Sounded kinda cool when I heard about it, but fails in its execution. What the movie fails to inform you of in most plot summaries is the fact that the website in question is somehow run partly by a supernatural force. Is the film as stupid as it sounds? YES! As it runs its course, this film fails epically (which is really unfortunate, because it was pretty cool for the first few minutes). In the end, FearDotCom ends up being a terrible mashup of One Missed Call and Untraceable, with a little bit of The Ring thrown in there for suck value.
