Hello,

1. He fainted in fright.

2. He fainted with fright.

Which one is correct?

For what it's worth... I've always used it or heard it without any object at all, whether direct object or indirect object.
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
Maybe "he fainted for fright"? I'd say "he was so frightened that he fainted", or "the fright made him faint".
Two examples using fear:

1. We lived in fear.

2. He was shaking with fear.

I have a feeling that "He fainted with fright " is better.
How about 'he fainted out of fear'?
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
I think I might disagree with Savvy on this particular one. 'Out of' is to me an equivalent to 'From', as in 'He fainted from fright'. And this does not sound ok to my ear. But maybe I'm wrong after all...
However, Pieanne's suggestion 'Fright made him faint' is still my favorite, as of today...
Check this out:

''The old man fainted out of fear and exhaustion and had to be carried back to camp.'' from the following site:

Yes, "fainted out of fear" looks good Emotion: smile , from the googling I just did.
