A young couple (if two weeks and one date a couple does make) are off to a music festival in Ireland. The romantic/optimistic male of the couple, Tom, has already booked them into a hotel for the night. After all, one date entitles him to make such ill-conceived gestures. Lucy, his girlfriend/co-fool, agrees, so off they go in search of the hotel. Things take a turn for the worse when they realise the signs have been altered, leading them in merry circles until darkness falls. It’s here that they finally realise they are being tormented by someone; perhaps one of the men from the pub they frequented a few hours prior. In Fear is a pointless waste of celluloid in which nothing remotely important occurs. The protagonists are so unlikeable that it’s hard to give a shit if they die or not, and the fact they drive all night on an empty tank is an insult to those unfortunate enough to have purchased a ticket. Shocking for all the wrong reasons.
