Le fear film trailer


Le Fear is a 2010 British comedy film, and the directorial debut of actor Jason Croot who also features in a supporting role. Shot on an ultra-low budget of less than £2,000, and filmed over the course of just three days, the film stars Kyri Saphiris, Spencer Austin and Lucinda Rhodes-Flaherty, among others. The story follows the experiences of a bunch of actors as they attempt to make an ultimately inept and poor quality film. A sequel, Le Fear II: Le Sequel, is due to be released in 2016.

  • Reception

    Critical reaction to the film was generally positive. Aaron Vacaro of Bad Move Nite, wrote "Le Fear is a comedy of errors that perfectly captures the absurdity of making a bad movie". John Shatzer of Gut Munchers said "...director Jason Croot brings us a really good movie about someone making a really terrible movie. That is a really nifty bit of filmmaking.". Paul Pritchard of Pulp Movies stated "...the people Carlos hires are an appalling collection of misfits and incompetents. This very effectively primes us for the comedy of errors that is to follow.", later saying "The film left me wanting more – much more...".

    Duane L. Martin of Rogue Cinema gave a slightly less favourable review of the film, saying "the sound wasn't always the best" as well as "the visual quality of it was rather lacking". He did, however, praise the film's general concept. Jenny Kermode, of Eye for Film was one of the few reviewers to give a more negative review of the film, awarding it only two stars out of five. She did, however, respond favourably to the low-budget nature of the film, stating "When one considers that Le Fear was made in three days on a mere £1,900, it's astounding."
