Late on a cold night somewhere in the U.S., teenage Casey sits alone in her attic bedroom, scrolling the internet under the glow-in-the-dark stars and black-light posters that blanket the ceiling. She has finally decided to take the World’s Fair Challenge, an online role-playing horror game, and embrace the uncertainty it promises. After the initiation, she documents the changes that may or may not be happening to her, adding her experiences to the shuffle of online clips available for the world to see. As she begins to lose herself between dream and reality, a mysterious figure reaches out, claiming to see something special in her uploads. —Sundance Film FestivalI feel like I’m missing something based on the positive reviews from everyone else. We’re All Going to the World’s Fair sets up to be promising. A teenage girl becomes immersed in an online horror role-playing game. From the picture I expected it to be freaky weird. And the very opening made me think that. The first 30-minutes aren’t bad. There’s an eerie sense all around and we see some messed up videos from others doing the World’s Fair challenge. But then nothing happens. I kept waiting for something disturbing to occur, but the rest of the movie does literally nothing. I understand the message that it’s sending about how we should be careful and take things more seriously. Yet, the stakes never get high enough where I felt like our lead, Casey, was in any danger. There’s a perspective from another man watching Casey and checking in on her, but he doesn’t add anything to the story till the end. The music didn’t work at all. We needed something off putting. Instead we got indie music with lyrics playing randomly in spots that didn’t work. I’m just really disappointed, especially after one of the extremely messed up videos from another playing. If someone else was attached to the project, I think it would be better.
