The intense psychological thriller Fear of Rain is making its digital, on-demand, and limited theatrical debut today.
I’m a huge fan of the psychological thriller horror subgenre, and Fear of Rain definitely delivers, keeping you guessing throughout the film. A fractured mind can be one hell of a scary reality and Director/Writer Castille Landon does a great job of weaving a complex story of internal struggle with the complex nature of the problems our lead character faces in the “real world.”
Israel Broussard, the love interest in the film, was effortless and fun to watch. This type of subject manner can be really hard to portray believably. However, in my opinion, Iseman and Broussard did an excellent job in breathing life into these characters.
Fear of Rain Synopsis:
For teenager Rain Burroughs (Madison Iseman), a diagnosis with schizophrenia means that every day is a struggle as she tries to figure out which of the disturbing images, harrowing voices, and traumatic feelings she experiences are real and which are all in her mind. But when Rain insists against her parents’ (Katherine Heigl and Harry Connick, Jr.) advice that the shadows and cries from her neighbor’s attic are hiding a dark secret, she enlists help from Caleb (Israel Broussard), the charmingly awkward new boy at school – who himself may not be real. Written and directed by Castille Landon (After We Fell, After Ever Happy), Fear of Rain is a terrifying thriller that takes you inside Rain’s mind as she confronts the frightening hallucinations of her imagination to determine whether there is real horror hiding right next door.
