Tagline: Want to see a really killer website? It's the last site you'll ever see.

Plot: When four bodies are discovered among the industrial decay and urban grime of New York City, brash young detective Mike Reilly (STEPHEN DORFF) teams with ambitious Department of Health researcher Terry Huston (NATASCHA MCELHONE) to uncover the cause behind their violent and inexplicable deaths.

The only common factor shared by the victims? Each died exactly 48 hours after logging on to Were they being punished for their inquisitiveness? For succumbing to temptation? For indulging their guilty pleasures?

Determined to confront and destroy the evil force behind the deadly site, Mike logs on and the clock starts ticking. Now he’s got 48 hours to face his own worst fears and solve the mystery, or suffer the same fate of the victims before him.

Together with Terry, he delves deep into a forbidden universe, each step bringing them closer to the frightening counter-reality of – and a life-and-death confrontation with Alistair Pratt (STEPHEN REA), a chilling murderer who has eluded Mike and the FBI for years. What they discover is as mystifying as the deaths themselves…and more terrifying than anything they ever

external linkThis is sadistic, mean, senseless and misogynistic and loaded with unpleasant production values and a head scratching script. It's not that the visuals stink it's the story writer Josephine Coyle has put together. 0/4

external linkFeardotCom wants us to think there's some sort of connection between the characters, but it's a ludicrous idea, backed by nothing in the script. 21/100
--Jack Witzig (ColdSpot)

external linkIn all, this was one of the biggest disappointments of 2002. ... The real flaw of this film is that it took itself way too seriously, something that “House on Haunted Hill” definitely did not do. Pass on this one.

external link"Feardotcom" is a movie that you should avoid at all costs. If "The Ring" and its Japanese counterpart never existed, this sad excuse of a movie would still be well, well below average. But with the previously mentioned movies vastly gaining respect and notoriety all over the world, "Feardotcom" stands as an abomination. 1/5

external linkVery disappointed in this film. No scares, but good dark atmosphere. A decent rent if you're bored, but don't expect much.
--FrighT MasteR (UHM)

external linkUltimately, this isn't scary (a little girl with a bouncing ball? Oh, do stop with that imagery) and it isn't particularly nasty, as punches are decidedly pulled when it comes to the Doctor's handiwork. 0.5/5
