"This DVD is 55 MINUTES LONG! 55 minutes of garbage, and I really liked the program on MTV. Sure would be nice if MTV just offered the program for sale by season. They say on their web site that is coming soon. Whether it is or not, DO NOT waste your money on this frisbee."

"I have seen the shows on MTV, and this compilation edition was a big disappointment. It is only 55 minutes long and shows about 5 dares. The ones shown were not the best of the show and, in my opinion, were poorly edited. Jumping from the actual dare to what the contestants were thinking about at the time was very irritating. Some contestants were explaining in one way or another, that it was their imagination which takes the fear factor out of the viewing. If you have seen the shows, this compilation is a waste of time!"
If you liked the gameshow, you will NOT like the DVD!

"I saw a one-off show broadcast on British TV and thought the blair-witch style gameshow was amazing. It had my eyes glued to the screen for the whole episode, and was scarier than anything I'd seen before. After searching around I got the DVD with high expectations but I have to say it was a dissapointment. The DVD only features about 6 dares, and at that you would expect them to be the best. They are not! The dares are spoiled by constant cuts to commentary from the contestants which means you can never settle into the action. The biggest downfall on the DVD is that it takes the freight out of the successful episodes. If you get a chance to see Fear on TV or know a friend that has any episodes, it's a must see. But as for this DVD, leave it on the shelf!"

"I havent seen this show although i would like to but living in England means i dont get to. I recently bought the fan made dvd collection of every episode including the other side of fear and faces of fear shows after seeing the two episodes of the show that were shown in Britain. The show FEAR is really amazing i loved it (there is a petition to try and get MTV to make more episodes at http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/fear ) I suggest anyone who has not seen this show should get hold of a copy of pretty much any episode and anyone who has to sign the petition to bring the greatest show ever back!"
If you like the show, you'll love the video

"I know that some may not agree with the title of my review, but I truly believe it. I admit MTV could have done much better, but it is still a solid video. If you have never seen the show, it might be a little confusing. If you have seen the show, you will feel that seeing dares out of the context of a whole episode is a bit strange. Bottom line, if you enjoy thought provoking reality tv, you might like Fear. If you want to know more about the show, this is the video for you. My biggest complaint is that it is a small cross section of the first season. My biggest compliment is that all the dares on it are some of the best. I highly recommend this DVD or video!"
