Plagiarism In Its Best!
11 November 2020 | by Impartial-CriticSee all my reviews

A couple of horror writers in a stormy night trade horror ideas and stories trying to scare each other.

A light refreshing take on the Comedy-Horror genre. Somewhere there's a buried gem under all of this rubble in what I feel that could've been executed more nicely and interestingly. The plot is good, the acting is great, the ending is funny but the second act fails to keep the interesting factor across the whole experience.

I really admire that the filmmakers force the audience to use their imagination for being entertained instead of drawing the scares for us like any typical horror...Quite challenging and daring try from the filmmakers but appreciated!

The directing is good, aids the story telling with limited yet nice effects, the introduction of the pizza guy was a good bore breaker but with the repetitive attitude it didn't succeed to elevate the middle of the movie from falling into the boredom trap. However, Scare Me is considered an intriguing shot and can be moderately enjoyed by many horror fan.
