Reviews

Review Links:

  • B-Movie Film Vault, (link) - "Lurking Fear fails on many levels. It has too many disposable characters, a disjointed plot, and doesn't put its monsters in the spotlight often enough. Toss in a healthy dose of lousy dialogue, a few terrible actors, a forgettable score, bad sound effects, and you have a recipe for disaster. ...But there are some redeeming things to be found here. Jeffrey Combs is great... the creatures look pretty cool and are kind of creepy..."
  • Michael Den Boer at 10,000 Bullets (link) - "As far as Lovecraft adaptions go this film actually holds up really well and a lot of why it works is because of the things that were added beyond the original source material."
  • Richard Scheib at The Science Fiction, Horror and Fantasy Film Review (2/5 Stars) (link) - "The film has a good opening scene... The scene seems promising for what is to come – only the great crime is that Lurking Fear slows down."
