Plot Summary:
"Four bodies are found in New York City. Why, why, why? The coincidence? They all died 48 hours after logging on to a site named feardotcom.com. Tough detective Mike Reilly collaborates with Department of Health associate Terry Huston to research these mysterious deaths. The only way to find out though what really happened is to enter the site itself."

Four bodies are found in New York City. The coincidence? They all died hours after logging onto a site named feardotcom.com. Now being someone who takes an extreme interest in websites and horror this should surely be something that I can sit back and take a real interest in. Not quite - in fact I am left with the feeling of bitter disappointment.

I personally enjoyed director William Malone's previous work on the remake of House on Haunted Hill. There were signs of originality and hints of new directions there. Unfortunately Fear Dot Com sadly manages to have neither. The nonsensical plot which seems to have heavily ripped off Ringu is bordering on the absurd. The film which seems to rely on sick, twisted and shocking imagery fails to scare or excite.

The twisted imagery in itself seemed very gratuitous and seemed purely put in for mere shock value. It almost seemed wasted in many ways. The brilliance of The Ring was to show very little. This shoved as many different disturbing images down the viewers throat in such a short space of time that it no longer became scary or shocking but simply laughable. It just felt as though % of the movie was literally filled with these flash images, and other bizarre visions.

The films only saving grace appears to be the inclusion on the soundtrack of the thundering Rammstein track, Sonne. But even this brief appearance fails to spark any real interest and in no way makes up for the bitter disappointment and sheer boredom felt by myself throughout the remainder of the film.

OVERALL SUMMARY
Under par performances all round (sorry Jeffrey), an absolutely ridiculous concept and utterly incomprehensible motives make this an all round mistake. Avoid at all costs.
