Plot Summary:
"Carla's sister accidetally falls off a cliff when the railing becomes loose while Carla's boyfriend takes photos. She has a hard time getting over her death and keeps having visions of her sister yelling at her for not saving her. It seems that everytime she gets next to a edge of a high area, she gets terrified. She then starts to take a class with other Acrophobiacs. Then the people in the group start getting killed one by one. She starts to suspect that someone wants her never to get over her fear and that the loose railing was meant for her."

Review Date: 24 July 2003 My Rating: out of 5


Traumatised by the death of her sister after an accident in the mountains, Carla Engel joins an acrophobic support group as a means of overcoming her fear of heights. The treatment seems to be working, that is until the members of her group start dying in mysterious accidents one by one, in deaths that relate to their fear of heights.

As we all know Wes Craven Presents normally translates as Wes Craven had squat all to do with this film but we payed him to watch it so that we could use his name and therefore exploit his faithful fanbase and take even more money out of their wallets.

However with the exception of the dire 'Carnival of Souls' re-tread, there is normally something entertaining to be found in the films, and this is one of the better ones. Also it would appear that Craven did have some actual involvement in this one as it was produced through his production company.

The cast are largely unknown, yet give crediblity to their characters and their individual situations. I don't know however if Aaron Smolinski's character was supposed to be THAT annoying but if he was he did a great job.

The story is engrossing and full of twists and turns to keep the viewer guessing and is complemented by many heart pounding set pieces, good camera work and a good score by J. Peter Robinson.

The only faults are minor ones and are largely to do with the stunt scenes. Sometimes the wire work was just a tad too obvious and the deaths are all largely implied, though that is probably due to budgetary reasons.

In all Don't Look Down is a good little movie to watch late at night if there's nothing else on cable.
