      Audience Member It's a simple thriller, it goes a bit too far at times, but overall, it keeps the pace. The characters are so-so, and the plot isn't entirely interesting, but watchable. It eventually gets predictable, but there are a few surprises. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member I added this movie to the queue, even thou I knew nothing about it, because I love the cast. Summer of Fear is based on the novel, Simon Says, and was a TV movie, and therein lies the problem. This story is amazing and would have made a great feature film, however they had to censor it and dumb it down big time for TV. Corky Nemec and Gregory Harrison were both amazing. I've always enjoyed both of them and together they had fantastic chemistry. Summer of Fear is a very entertaining story that will throw you a few twists. Despite never reading the novel, I'm willing to bet it goes further and is more direct than the movie was. It was a great cast and I definitely enjoyed the film, but it should have been so much more. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member 17 February 2011 Average movie...you know within 5 minutes what the end will be but its watchable. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member A thriller about a family going away to a cabin. The dad has a past that is drawn up periodically throughout the vacation. It has an interesting premise and it is a thriller. The twist at the end I realized but it still was fun to see how the dad somehow forgot to mention to his wife all these years that he had a son. Overall, it is entertaining and has a good idea of what it is trying to show. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
