    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    The film is a failure in just about every way, save for its acting, which is adequate. show more

    Wall Street Journal

    For the most part, the movie serves up an incomprehensible collage of high-tech voyeurism sprinkled with every hackneyed creep-out trick in the book -- from eerie little ghost girls to melting walls and scurrying cockroaches. show more

    Jami Bernard New York Daily News

    The story is a mess, some of the images offensive, the acting under par and the dialogue silly. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Strange, how good feardotcom is, and how bad. The screenplay is a mess, and yet the visuals are so creative this is one of the rare bad films you might actually want to see. show more

    Liam Lacey The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    There's potential here for a macabre cult favourite touching on themes of technology and the body-mind split, but the movie's progression into rambling incoherence gives new meaning to the phrase "fatal script error." show more

    As scary and minor-chord heavy as FearDotCom can be, there's no big payoff, no logical resolution. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    A low-rent, slow-witted horror flick notable chiefly for its hilariously unsuccessful attempt to pass off Luxembourg City as New York City. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    There's a germ of an interesting idea here, but it's smothered by gloomy cinematography a la "Seven" (1995) and grating implausibilities, like the fact that everyone lives in the kind of cavernous, dankly art-directed dumps that only internet millionaires and trust fund twinkies can afford in the real New York. show more

    I feel guilty and somehow unclean. And all I did was watch it. show more
