Everyone has fears, whether it be spiders or even the sight of a needle.
However, some fears are more common than others… like heights.
Acrophobia is a type of condition where people have an intense fear of heights.
Someone who suffers from this will feel intense anxiety when positioned at a significant height, or even just thinking about it.
And now there’s a film that actually addresses this fear, and while it’s terrifying, you also can’t look away.
Watch the trailer here…
Fall is a survival thriller directed and co-written by Scott Mann and Jonathon Frank.
It stars Grace Caroline Currey, Virginia Gardner, Mason Gooding and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
The movie follows two women who climb a 2,000 feet tall radio tower, and they then get stranded at the top with no way of getting down.
Fall was a box office success, as it’s estimated to have grossed $21 million worldwide, against a $3 million budget.

It also received a ton of positive reviews from critics, who have praised its suspense and performances.
Fall is even being discussed on Reddit, where many viewers have said that although they enjoyed it, it left them feeling nauseous.
One fan writes: “I am terrified of heights, so watching it was pure masochism. Terrifying!”
Another adds: “Oh man, I watched this movie in theatres in 3D.
“I literally got sick to my stomach while watching and had to step out for some air at certain points. Fantastic movie, awesome cinematography, just amazing.”
While a third person says: “I didn’t expect much of this, and it’s a great exercise on cinematic tension, it does get to you. Very pleasantly surprised with this!”
“I couldn’t even make it through the trailer,” somebody else admits.
A fifth person comments: “My palms haven’t sweated like this is a long time.
“The cinematography is definitely meant to invoke your deepest fear of heights. In my opinion, it was well done.”
On Rotten Tomatoes, Fall has scored 79% with critics.
While Metacritic, which averages the scores, has given the film 62 out of 100.
Many fans of the movie have gone on to question what the creators were inspired by, and Mann opened up about this in an interview with Radio Times.
He told the publication: “The inception of the height idea came about when we were shooting Final Score at a stadium in the UK.
“We were filming at height, and off camera, we got into this interesting conversation about height and the fear of falling and how that’s inside of all of us, really, and how that can be a great device for a movie.”
Fall is now available to stream on Netflix.
