This movie was like the Hateful Eight.  Everybody died!  And the heroes... weren't really?

First Encounter Assault Recon (F.E.A.R.)
(PC, 2005)

Squeamish during horror films?  Perhaps you'll feel a bit better approaching the genre as a video game - the souls of the damned are just that much less scary when you have a gun in your hand.  The normal jolts of adrenaline you'd get facing off against armed attackers in narrow hallways, office cubicles, parkades, and quarantine facilities are augmented by a unique plot and setting. It's a game that's more than just running and gunning - it's a dark, bloody, thriller.

Plotwise, you follow the adventures of an unnamed commando on the trail of some egomaniacal terrorist... then some real weird shit starts to happen. The player is haunted by disturbing, violent visions from an adversary tapped into some sort of supernatural force.  And what woe bewaits those who are SCARING THE LITTLE GIRL?!!

Ultimately, F.E.A.R. is about family.  A family that makes Shinji Ikari's home life seem like Leave it to Beaver.  From the battalion of cloned mooks you killify for most of the game, to a decent chunk of the core cast, there's plenty of proof that blood isn't thicker than water.

F.E.A.R. earns eight crosshairs out of ten! (✛✛✛✛✛✛✛✛/✛✛✛✛✛✛✛✛✛✛)
