Critic Reviews for Fright (I'm Alone and I'm Scared) (Night Legs)

All Critics (1)

an early precursor to the home invasion thriller... Fright is more psychological melodrama than slasher... and by the end is a piece of history soon forgotten.

Audience Reviews for Fright (I'm Alone and I'm Scared) (Night Legs)

Fright is a really good if not great thriller suspense horror movie straight from britain, When a babysitter named Amanda arrives to take care of the Lloyds 3 year old son everything seems nice and normal just parents wanting a night on the town but soon after they leave strange noises are heard threw out the house sending the babysitter on edge of course that is till the boys real father shows up recently escaped from the mental hospital thats when the fun starts as she is terrorized non stop untill the police and parents arrive back home. Really worth a watch for those fans that love suspenseful horror

Not a horror film, as it seems, but a really well made suspense flick. Now the script isn't amazing, but what Peter Collinson does with it is. It's perfect evidence of how storytelling in films rests so much in the hands of the director. Collinson composes so incredible shots, and utilizes longer shots, camera movement and zooms to great effect. His directing style is really solid and effective and makes this film incredibly watchable, where a lesser director could have made it boring as all hell. He really splits the acts in this film, and shifts moods seemlessly as this film really seems like three movies in one, yet it never ends up being disorienting. Although this is only the second film I've seen of his, and supposedly one of his worst along with the other, Tomorrow Never Comes, he is quickly becoming a favourite of mine. Filmmaking aside, Susan George is nothing to sneeze at and for someone like me, make a film worth watching.

Saw this a long time back on t.v. Liked it. Just seeing George run around scared and barely dressed was fun. It had some true scary moments in it. The bad guy gets her one time. But I think she gets her revenge. Got to see it again.
