FearDotCom (2002) is, as near as I can tell, a double horror film, both related to a Web site, feardotcom.com. Horror one is a mad doctor (actually a medical school washout) who tortures bound women until they ask to be killed, then obliges them. The second horror is the ghost of one of his victims who haunts the Internet, killing people who log on to the site. At least, that is my best guess as to the plot. The director indicated that he intended it to be a little ambiguous, and that his real aim was just to be scary. He also prided himself on making the darkest film of all time.
Anna Thalbach, as a victim of the ghost, shows breasts dead in the bathtub, on a morgue slab, and in a home video. Astrid Skuyat also shows breasts in several scenes as the mad doctors current victim. IMDB readers have this at 3/5 of 10. It grossed $13.2 against a $42M budget. Rotten Tomatoes has it at 3%, with 0% from the top critics. I absolutely hated it. First of all, when I watch a movie, I like to see the movie, not dark shadows in dark places. Second, the set decoration was 1930's New York, which was a little out of place with an Internet Horror film. Third, the film was full of logic errors, and finally, I never really felt any sense of peril or dread. D-.

Steven Soderbergh had an off year, with two failures, Solaris
and Full Frontal, but he kicked butt compared to former
wunderkind Darren Aronofsky. Roger Friedman of Fox News said, "I
hear that Darren Aronofsky's film, Fountain,
which Warner Bros. pulled the plug on last summer just before it
began shooting in Australia, may be back on. Aronofsky told me
recently that this was a possibility and I've heard it
elsewhere. Warner effectively pillaged Fountain when it
needed star Brad Pitt to come be in Troy,
a bazillion-dollar epic I'm not sure anyone wants to see.
Aronofsky has not had the best year. A film he co-produced and
wrote but chose not to direct, called Below, was shall
we say, swept aside by Dimension/Miramax this fall. Despite a
good cast and the usual sci-fi mumbo jumbo, Below took
in $589,424 in three weeks before disappearing altogether.
There's a rumor that it's playing in Singapore."
Scoop's note: it is rated a fairly solid
6.8 at IMDb.

'Caps and comments by Hankster:
Houston, we have a problem. The old time Machine was not running right on yesterday's return trip from 1972 so we had to take it into the shop for service. Right next door is a video rental store, so we went in and came out with a little gem of a straight to video 2002 release of "Death Factory" ( so obscure I doubt that even Tuna has done this one ). As I took this turkey home I wondered to myself, why am I renting this when I have about 200 or so DVD's that I have yet to cap ( I never told you I was smart ) .
Now I love horror movies ( this is not a horror movie, more gore and blood than I think I have ever seen in any movie), but I like spooky not gore. So having said that I fast forwarded looking for the nudity that the box cover promised me.
Here's what we came up with, the star is Lisa Jay who did not get naked, but wore a low cut white short dress ( somehow a woman in a short white skirt or dress is a turn on for me ). Anyhow we did some caps of Lisa which give us a little leg and cleavage and the last couple show her in distress and that pretty white dress covered in blood. Lisa was the lucky one she escaped and the very last cap we see her in a hospital bed. If your squeamish skip the last couple of caps.
Now the good stuff, Rhoda Jordan in a scene of love making with her boyfriend. This lady has one impressive rack and shows it off for us.The bad news is Rhoda meets a tragic end and it was even bloodier than Lisa's scene, so guess what I skipped it, better to remember her this way. This movie was released by Brain Damage Films, so I guess you have to be brain damaged to watch it ( I know what your thinking, but I didn't watch it I fast forwarded ).
Well that's it for today, have to go check and see how the repairs on the time machine are going, could be a problem there, took it to the Ford dealer and the mechanic said he would have to see if he can find a service manual. So where we go next is anybody's guess.
- Lisa Jay

Answering a request for Fun House readers...I came across a Katherine Heigl pic from "Prince Valiant" that hasn't appeared in any DVD/VHS/TV version. It appeared on a Russian site I found. I'm hoping a Russian speaking Fun House reader may be able to find some more info or even a copy of it.

MADONNA BANS TV FROM HER HOME
Grim Reality - Director Guy Ritchie, who is making his first reality TV
series, admitted that he hasn't seen TV in three years because his wife
Madonna banned it from the house so they wouldn't see unpleasant news
stories about their relationship. But the result was that someone recently
asked him about "Survivor," and he didn't know what it was.
He assumed it must be a documentary about his marriage to Madonna.
She also banned newspapers because they carry movie reviews.
Madonna will be happy to hear that she can bring back the TV because
she's hardly ever mentioned on it anymore.
