An accident occurred during filming when a carnival ride carrying several passengers was left on for about twenty minutes to half an hour. The ride, one which has several octopus arms that spin around with rotating carriages, normally only runs for about four minutes per joyride. Thrillseekers vomited and yelled out real screams as the ride continued way past its end time. When stopped, the riders could not walk and were somewhat twisted in their musculature. An ambulance was called but no one was seriously injured. See more »
This was better than it should have been, considering most of the actors are unknowns and the film has a Grade B feel to it throughout. It gets good points for two things: the story moved fast and the cinematography was good. I like stylish-looking visuals, which is what you get here.
Teenage punks usually turn me off but these guys - with one exception - were tolerable. The language was bad, but much of it came in bunches by just two of the guys.
Overall, a surprisingly--decent horror film which is colorful and has its atmospheric merits. Is is super scary? No, but it's a fun-house and fun to watch.
