In Fear (2013) Review:

Having watched a lot of mediocre new releases recently, I didn’t expect much from this one…which is maybe why I enjoyed it so much! This little Irish movie, the first full-length feature film of Jeremy Lovering, comes as one of the great surprises of 2013.

The story is the one of typical survival horror (The Strangers, Ils, The Purge, etc) – a couple gets assaulted in an isolated place – except that, this time, almost every single scene in the movie happens in the characters’ car. The characters are lost in the woods and keep driving in a circle, always discovering the same roads. This, along with the claustrophobic settings of the woods, makes the movie really oppressive. This creates a very unique atmosphere to the movie: a car movie with two fear factors: oppression and stress.

Without much gore or action at all, the movie does a splendid job at using little things to scare the shit out of you. The suspense is at his maximum after the half-hour, and remains so for a full additional hour. On many points, I actually found this movie to resemble the excellent Eden Lake, especially in the nastiness of the attacks and the stress it creates.

Only the ending is a bit mediocre and makes me rate that movie less than Eden Lake. Other than that, In Fear is a great flick, highly recommended, and the type of film that will make you feed on your fingernails for 90 minutes!
