The movie is about three college youngsters who decide to do a project on human phobias. This involves interviewing several people on camera and creating a documentary type footage. How the reality unravelled during the creation of this project slowly seeps into and overpowers the lives of the three youngsters forms the crux of this project.

Dread showcases a movie within a movie because of its treatment. It is no cheap remake of and other horror movies as the characters are well crafted and there are no goose bump thrills. It will leave you disturbed and in an introspective mood. The thesis or the project which the three students are creating is also named ‘Dread’. Quaid (Shaun Evans), Stephen (Jackson Rathbone - Twilight and New Moon) and Cheryl (Hanne Steen) also hold their own fears inside them. Quaid comes through as the smart, well to do and sophisticated guy with an articulate tongue. He however holds a terrible secret, the story of his own dread which will ultimately overpower him. It possesses him like a demon and havoc is unleashed.

The best part about the movie is the realistic treatment and the dialogues which support this. It can happen is the most obvious thought that comes to mind. There are also short role characters like Abby and Joshua that support the plot. Clive Barker’s non supernatural movie has gory flashbacks, disturbing dream sequences and gruesome hallucinations which will jolt viewers. The movie also shows a kind of diagnostic approach of the protagonist who is obsessed with dread. Quaid the artist and the charmer who transforms into the devil itself and transforms everything around to pandemonium. He brings the dread inside all the characters around him to face them and ultimately destroy them. He does this because he is a victim himself and wants to prove that people around him are just like him, mutated and morphed into something else psychologically because of their experiences.

I will not give any more details to kill the suspense.Please go and watch it since its way better and more sophisticated than ‘Hostel’(Eli Roth) or ‘Texas Chainsaw’ and has more depth than ‘Psycho’.
