Boasting a pull-quote from The Telegraph claiming it to be “the best British chiller since The Descent“, the makers of this film has certainly set the bar high for themselves. On the other hand, there haven’t been that many great British chillers since The Descent.
Lucy and Tom are a young couple on their way to a music festival when they find themselves lost in an ever-darkening maze of country roads and dead ends. To make things worse, the pair of them suspect they’re being stalked by a mysterious figure.
Directed by TV veteran Jeremy Lovering, In Fear stars Iain De Caestecker from the upcoming Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show and Alice Englert from Beautiful Creatures and Ginger & Rosa (although the FrightFest programme just condescendingly refers to her as ‘Jane Campion‘s daughter‘).
Structured like a haunted house movie (only set outdoors), the film looks like it could be a wonderfully slow-burning nail-biter of a film. You know… like The Descent.
In Fear rolls up to cinemas 8 November
