Reviews [may contain spoilers]:

“The idea of an entire house being under surveillance was seen in Hangman, and the drama is so underplayed that it’s ineffective. Afraid may be of interest to fans of The Walking Dead, as it features future series regular Alanna Masterson. Otherwise, you may be better off simply watching your neighbors.” Mike Long, DVD Sleuth

” …the cinematography is dreadful. The entire film is a bit blurry and distant, I know they were going for a look as if it was filmed from the security videos, but in the end, it just looks bad. Afraid is painfully slow. There are a few attempts at jump scares, but even they fall flat.” Horror Fuel

” …this invasion of privacy film has no suspense whatsoever, the boring conversations we sit through with the couple as they lay about the house doing nothing lead up to absolutely nothing in the end, the “big reveal” was not so much a surprise as a “oh come on, really?”, it actually made me angry.” Ken Kastenhuber, McBastard’s Mausoleum

Release:

Afraid was released on digital and DVD by Well Go Entertainment on October 2, 2018.
