Directed by: the same asshole who directed The House on Haunted Hill

Starring: Stephen Dorff and some other poor saps

J-Rock's Review:
This is a total waste of time, money and film.

Original Review:
I thought it was impossible to make a movie worse than the afore-mentioned House on Haunted Hill. But this idiot succeeded.

This movie had a stupid story, horrible acting, dizzying cinematography and an awful style. Every scene takes place in faux Art-Deco rooms, like the entire city is back in the 1940s. And it's always raining - very fucking annoying.

As for the story, some sicko is running a live-webcam death site where he tortures and kills nubile young ladies. And the police can't find him. And anyone who looks at the site dies within 24 hours, at the hands of the first woman who died, who has apparently become some sort of electrical impulse (cough*Lawnmower Man*cough). The worst part is that every time someone logs on to the site, the movie enters a nauseating sequence of flashes and spins that don't scare you, but instead make you want to punch the director.

Anyway, they find him, and then they log him onto the site, so the dead chick kills him (finally!).
We didn't even see a double feature that night, because there was nothing else worth seeing. Hollywood sucks.

Addendum, added October 25, 2002:
Another thing that makes this movie suck really really bad is that it totally rips off The Ring. I saw the Japanese original, and even though it was dubbed off of a PAL video-disc and subtitled in both Cantonese and English, the movie was really cool. But feardotcom sucked all the suspense out of the movie for me. Fucking Stephen Dorff. I'm glad Blade kicked your ass.
