Product Description

Psychological horror based on a Clive Barker short story. Two college students - outcast Steve (Jackson Rathbone) and charming, mysterious Quaid (Shaun Evans) - embark on a college project to record and study people's innermost fears. Enlisting the help of fellow student Abby (Hanne Steen), they advertise for interviewees and set the camera rolling as their subjects begin to reveal the demons that haunt them. As the project gains momentum, however, it becomes apparent that the three must now face up to the traumatic events of their own pasts and finally confront their darkest fears.

Format: DVD
Dread is a deliciously spiteful British/American horror production adapted from a Clive Barker short story. Plot has three college students meeting up and working together on a documentary about the nature of people's fears. As things progress it becomes apparent that one of them has an ulterior motive.

Director and screenplay writer Anthony DiBlasi spends a considerable portion of the film establishing the psychological make-ups of the principal players, which is a key component to making the film work. Theo Green's music trundles away menacingly during this portion of pic, while Sam McCurdy's photography is on the money, with unnerving shades of green, reds and blues stripped back for a perfect troubled world feel.

Once the worm turns, and motives and mental anguishes show themselves, Dread reveals a cruel hand of such psychological force that the impact is troubling. Yet this is no torture porn picture, the gore is minimum and this for sure is not a slasher type of film either. It's a slice of mental cruelty mixed with a damaged seed, two bad aspects of human nature crashing together to assault those interested in the psychologically based splinter of horror.

Oh and the ending is a cracker-jack, guaranteed to jolt you, for better or worse! 7.5/10

Interesting horror film based on a Clive Barker short story.
The film is well shot , exciting and kept me hooked throughout.
There are some sadistic scenes in this which should appeal to fans of gore, and a startling ending which caught me by surprise and made me smile.
A winner in my book and well
worth purchasing

!!!WARNING. MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!!

Film student and loner Stephen(Jackson Rathbone) is befriended by equally lonely drifter Quaid(Shaun Evans). When Quaid hears that Stephen needs a subject for his film thesis, he suggests a study into the innermost fears of people, with their subjects testimonies being filmed and documented. Quaid also suggests that Stephen can work through his own inner demons during the process as he lost his brother in a car accident. Stephen ropes in fellow student Cheryl(Hanne Steen)to assist with the project. Quaid himself has his very own personal reasons for helping with the study, reasons that soon become very apparent. Stephen and Cheryl are happy with the way the thesis is going, but Quaid has other ideas, wanting to take the whole study to the next level, a level that requires a more active participation on behalf of the subjects.
I must confess that I haven't read Clive Barker's Books Of Blood. This film is based on one of the stories from these collections, so I can't judge how faithful or not it is to the source material. What I can say for definite is that this film is a very fine psychological horror that really gets under the skin. The performances are nicely underplayed, and after a while you generally do care what happens to the characters, making the increasingly disturbing chain of events that occur quite difficult to watch.
Even Quaid comes across as sympathetic, as the study proves to be a catalyst for his rapid descent into madness, not helped by his decision to bin his meds. He may well be a psychopath, but he's one created by the ills of society. His surface charm and confidence hide a multitude of psychological traumas. Both Stephen and Cheryl are equally vulnerable, and the whole thing is a powder keg about to explode.

It is darkly shot, using not much light, and features a group of teens, of which one basically slowly loses his sanity, with his fear and dread overcoming him. The lead in question, an art student, is traumatised from seeing his parents murdered as a child. As he descends into madness women appear slashed by the killer, until later he imagines his friends as the enemy killer he cannot erase from his troubled mind.

The acting is poor, a dislikeable teen cast delivering a teen horror flick on a budget, throwing in nudity because it has to (to keep its audience amused) and thus underwhelming with nothing new. This is a cult classic for the horror genre fans, with a credible ending (he kidnaps, tortures and/or kills his friends) as his paranoia, insanity and mind goes. The group of college teens are shooting an art project but this is more of a side distraction and reason to include pretty girls.

A weak horror drama with few thrills and a predictable and dull direction, nothing here of any substance and just another poorly done teen slasher without intelligence.

Don't write many reviews but i would like to re-dress the balance here. The poor reviews are in my opinion unjustified.
I would put this film at least on a par with Midnight Meat Train, better than Books of Blood but not as good as the 1st Hellraiser. It's a film with a "real life" feel to it, great acting and directing.
Makes a change to see a really good ending to a horror film and not totally obvious.
It comes across as quite horrific in both a psychological and visual way with some good suspense and there are some wonderfully squirmy moments in there too with excellent effects, no CGI fest here.
Yes it is a bit of a drama in the middle but that adds to the atmosphere and the ending is uniquely about 25-30 minutes long but is in no-way dragged out.
BUT i would only recommend this movie to people that also appreciate drama's. This is NOT a glossy hollywood horror, it's more down to earth, dirty and real.
