The original draft of the script was called "The Ones Who Believe" and was later changed to "Live-In Fear" after the script underwent adjustments for budgetary reasons. This new title was meant to acknowledge the fear that lived within the characters and was inspired by the song of the same name by Ilan Rubin's band The New Regime. See more »
Has the basis of a clear classic horror story but lacks innovation and the production to create an enjoyable watch.
The movie promises a natural horror classic and seems to deliver very little. There is limited soundtracks and suspense building effects throughout which appear needed due to lack of action. The characters do have basic relationships yet the production does not enable you to get attached to any character who encounters perils.
Themes which run through the movie are typical of horror films but resemble a stew with all the ingredients, lacking the quality and kick needed for enjoyment. The title whilst clear, does not leave much room for thought which is always nice to challenge the viewer and maintain their interest. For a film in one setting there is very limited storyline so perhaps the movie would benefit from more plot and scenery progression throughout.
Overall there are too many areas, if not all, which need considerable development in order to make the film a success. The basic story does however possess part of the bones of a sturdy classic horror but lacks USP and the production to drive the movie to an exciting watch. The ending is better than the beginning while quality and plot throughout remains consistently monotonous.
