1.0 out of 5 stars Both DVD Versions are Censored February 2, 2002
By A Customer
I am a huge fan of this movie and bought it on VHS a long time ago. Recently I purchased a used copy of the Simitar Edition of The Fear on ebay, when I started watching the first thing I noticed was that the transfer was horrible with pixilization very obvious and also artifacts throught the film were also very obvious, and then the biggest problem, it was censored. I don't mean just the nudity, all of the language, etc. was edited. So I then bought the A-Pix DVD, hopeing for a better DVD. Instead I found that it was the same exact dvd, only with a different logo on it. My advice is to buy the VHS edition. It actually has a better picture than the DVD and it is not edited. Hope I help you in your purchase.

1.0 out of 5 stars This DVD is ... June 10, 2001
...TOTALLY CENSORED!!! Be sure to stay away from this version unless you liked your movies minus the nudity, violence and adult language. I could not believe what they did to this film. I felt like I was watching it on network TV. I know that it says that it is rated R but trust me it is not. The VHS might be a different story but I would not know since I am stuck with this hacked up Unapix version. I repeat this is the Unapix DVD not the Simitar. I think that the Simtar release has been discontinued for some time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Morty Seinfeld, he's a bum September 30, 2008
As October rapidly approaches it seems a no brainer to continue on the path of b horror, which we and so many others love. This week's film The Fear has been on our radar for quite some time but hasn't been acted upon until we recently purchased it as part of a four pack for $9. So that means this one individually cost $2.25 which still may be a bit too steep. Roughly 12 years ago was the first time we saw the film and couldn't recall much except for how bad it was. Now you may ask, if it's so bad why would you want to watch it again? The logic behind that is when we first saw the film we were kids looking to be legitimately scared. Now instead of looking for scares we seek laughter from the horrible acting and confusing plots. Thats the art of b and the reason we label these films as "unintentional comedies." Under these guidelines you can extract good out of the worst movies ever made providing a very enjoyable viewing experience. The Fear had to fall into this category or couldn't be viewed without slipping into a coma.

The film starts off with psychology student Richard (Eddie Bowz) who has these recurring nightmares from his childhood, but can't seem to figure out their meaning or why they scare him so much. In these dreams he's walking around in the woods where he see's two masked men burying somebody. With this constantly on his mind he decides he'd like to spice up his thesis by running an experiment on a group of people to make them face their darkest fears at his remote childhood cabin in the middle of the woods. He presents this idea to his professor Dr. Arnold (Wes Craven) who approves of the experiment and arranges the weekend trip.

1.0 out of 5 stars The DVD is CENSORED!!! June 7, 2012

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought the dvd for a friend of mine who loved this film. He told me to check it out. The scenes are cut rather short and every time someone is about to curse, the audio cuts out. Morty is an amazing character and the dvd is a great version for kids. I purchased this on vhs and its a much better film. It's the adult version. The way it was intended to be. Vhs gets a five star. This edit gets a one.

The year of 1995 is when I originally saw the Fear as a young kid. Over the years I've had a desire to revisit a lot of these old horror films I'd seen years before to know if they were as bad as I remembered. The answer is yes there are. I decided to dedicate some evenings to watch & review them again leading to an influx of b horror reviews in my profile. I had previously declared Grim as one of the worst I've seen, but the Fear is giving it some serious competition.

The premise of the film is centered around "fear therapy." Richard, a psychology major, decides to put together a group of random students and bring them to his childhood cabin in the woods to run some tests. These tests are to extract the fears out of these folks while telling them to Morty his wooden puppet. Apparently Morty scared the piss out of him as a kid and he thought this was a genius idea to use it as a teaching device. The film drags on and on until Morty finally comes to life proving he is the biggest fear they have, stalking them at every turn. If you can stay awake to see it.

Yet another film that I really wanted to make myself like but just couldn't. It really is one of the most boring "horrors" out there. The acting was the only scary thing about it causing extreme laughter at certain points. Even Wes Craven made an appearance in maybe his worst move to date. He plays Richards' college professor Dr. Arnold and is in the film for about 5 minutes total. He must have been doing it as a favor to the director. All in all The Fear is really awful. I can't even recommend it for the b enthusiasts out there.

2.0 out of 5 stars MORTY THE MANNEQUIN June 15, 2005
THE FEAR gives us a psychology student who decides to gather some friends for a weekend getaway and discuss and analyze what they are afraid of. A subplot involves a campus rapist who just might be one of the weekend party. Also included is a wooden mannequin named Morty who supposedly has special magical powers. The late Vince Edwards (Ben Casey) made his last appearance in this yawner. The cast is uniformly bad, and the editing, pacing and coherency of script leave a lot to be desired. Morty is about as believable as the Easter Bunny and the movie's fright ratio non-existent.

4.0 out of 5 stars great old scary
this is one of my favorite movies. it is a little slow, but is a great suspense thriller. I would rate it on a fear scale of 4, but does have its moments.

Classic from back in the day when horror movies were original. No real blood and gore in this movie but just the perfect amount of suspense to keep you watching.

This starts out like some schlocky "weekend in the woods goes horribly wrong" sort of campy, low budget horror movie. Read more
