external linkBoring movie. Wouldn't exactly even call it a horror film. Had a decent story, but nothing special. Even the deaths were dull. Don't bother. 4/10

external linkFairly interesting premise helps this stay better than average. Film buffs will enjoy the old clips and homages. 2.5/4

external linkUnfortunately, "Fade" doesn't deliver much in terms of fear or even gore. Even Christopher's performance isn't very good.
