Fear Dot Com is a 2002 horror film about a series of deaths that centers around a mysterious website. Mike Reilly (Stephen Dorff), a detective, is assigned a series of gruesome murder cases where the victims bled from their eyes before dying. Terry Houston (Natascha McElhorn), a health examiner, suspects a virus outbreak and quickly gets involved in the investigation, but the autopsies offer no clues. When forensics expert, Denise Stone (Amelia Curtis), examines the victims' hard drives, she learns that each looked at the same website: fear.com. Denise visits the site, which features videos of horrific torture and murder. Soon, Denise begins to experience hallucinations, and two days later she is found dead after falling from her apartment window. Mike and Terry discover that the victims died within 48 hours after visiting the website. Desperate to uncover the truth behind the killings, the pair visits the site, knowing that they have just two days to unravel the mystery and prevent their own murders.
