Roller Coaster ride of FEAR
27 January 2002 | by (Birmingham, UK) – See all my reviews

Long time dead sticks to all the clichés of America Teen horror films, however it manages to do so with a lot more class. The story is more dark than funny, with some truly heart-jumping moments. It's set in London, in abandoned warehouses, scrap-yards, and dingy student apartments. The main plot involves a group of students deciding to do a ouiji board, but the consequences leads to a fire-demon monster being released into the world. The first half of the film is good and moves at a fair pace, with classic suspenseful moments. The fast movement in camera shot helps to make the viewer feel like being in this roller coaster ride of FEAR, and with one of the teens being possessed by the demon, it keeps you guessing, and a dark secret from one of the students causes more angst.

However as soon as it is revealed the film dies out to a predictable end. This film has been done before, but I'm sure it will be a success if only to see the scariest sets imaginable and the classic light bulb smashing scene!
