In 2002, Warner Bros production chief Alan Horn was harshly criticized for producing a large number of shoddy films in a bid to increase revenues, even at the expense of quality. Horn retorted that the studio had in fact assigned an executive to improve the quality of films produced in collaboration with Elie Samaha (the "genius" behind such films as Battlefield Earth, Driven, and Ballistic) and cited as an example Feardotcom. "Feardotcom," Esquire reported, "is an example of a project that was heavily edited and, according to Warner, represents an improved product. Maybe that's why The Washington Post called it 'a depraved, incoherent, instantly disposable piece of hackery.'"
