Summer of Fear is a 1996 American made-for-television psychological thriller film starring Gregory Harrison, Glynnis O'Connor, Lee Garlington and Corin Nemec which premiered on CBS on April 3, 1996. It was written by John Gay and based on the novel Simon Says by Gloria Murphy.



Lucas Marshall (Gregory Harrison) is a corporate executive who has inherited a summer cottage from his deceased aunt and decides to bring his family there for a summer vacation. En route to the cottage, the Marshalls encounter two evil men who attack the family only to be rescued by Simon (Corin Nemec), a 19-year-old mysterious drifter. Lucas then makes the fatal mistake of welcoming Simon into his family home.

Soon, Simon begins to play psychological games with the family, and Lucas becomes concerned as the young man forces his way into the family by becoming a role model to their son Zack (David Gallagher). Although Simon seems like a good-natured person, Lucas has bad feelings about him and fears that Simon may harbor a dark secret.
