The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

By Liam Lacey
There's potential here for a macabre cult favourite touching on themes of technology and the body-mind split, but the movie's progression into rambling incoherence gives new meaning to the phrase "fatal script error."

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
Strange, how good feardotcom is, and how bad. The screenplay is a mess, and yet the visuals are so creative this is one of the rare bad films you might actually want to see.

Chicago Tribune

By Robert K. Elder
As scary and minor-chord heavy as FearDotCom can be, there's no big payoff, no logical resolution.

TV Guide

By Maitland McDonagh
There's a germ of an interesting idea here, but it's smothered by gloomy cinematography a la "Seven" (1995) and grating implausibilities, like the fact that everyone lives in the kind of cavernous, dankly art-directed dumps that only internet millionaires and trust fund twinkies can afford in the real New York.

New York Daily News

By Jami Bernard
The story is a mess, some of the images offensive, the acting under par and the dialogue silly.

New York Post

By Lou Lumenick
A low-rent, slow-witted horror flick notable chiefly for its hilariously unsuccessful attempt to pass off Luxembourg City as New York City.

Entertainment Weekly

By Lisa Schwarzbaum
The film squanders every opportunity (and international-coproduction cent) on by now imitative Nine Inch Nails-video-style visual Goth-goo, and, scarily, forgets to input a plot or script that makes any sense.

Film Threat

By Rick Kisonak
I feel guilty and somehow unclean. And all I did was watch it.

Wall Street Journal

For the most part, the movie serves up an incomprehensible collage of high-tech voyeurism sprinkled with every hackneyed creep-out trick in the book -- from eerie little ghost girls to melting walls and scurrying cockroaches.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
The film is a failure in just about every way, save for its acting, which is adequate.
