Ryan Daley has chimed in with his thoughts on the Sundance Midnight psychological thriller In Fear, which stars Iain De Caestecker, Alice Englert, and Allen Leech driving, lost and tormented in the night, where primal fears of the dark and the unknown give way to horrible fears.
Daley explains that “Pervasive feeling of dread runs throughout the first half” of Jeremy Lovering’s pic, and that “uneasy moans from the audience could be heard as Lovering takes a seemingly benign situation and slowly tightens the screws.”
Although, he goes into explain that it loses its magic: “But midway through the movie Lovering gives us an early peek at his hole card, and the tension, so cleverly sustained until now, begins to seep away.”
