Killer nets, carnival rides, 80's guitar playing ghosts!
29 July 2002 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

First of all, I love killer nets, no matter how many times I see them do their magic. I never quite understood the danger of nets, but I guess they can attack you and trap you for a really long time if you're not careful.

Anyway, this movie was actually a little suspenseful but kind of lame, too. British horror movies always have this way about them. They're scary/suspenseful, but they never have that campy, cool, strange element that say, Italian horror movies have.

This movie has some cool ideas, and I always like it when a horror movie has invisible ghosts. for some reason it just seems scarier than a drooling monster that comes through the floors at you.

Also, what is with late 80's movies always having some element from the 50's there? These people who are shipwrecked, take off their wet clothes (no nudity) and put on some 50's clothes that they just found, and wear them for the rest of the movie. But when one guy goes into an auditorium and experiences ghosts playing music, they're like Elvis Costello and his buddies. REALLY BAD.

And why was the guy that jumps out of the film strip wearing an Arabic head cover? And why was the pilot ghost wearing something out of medieval days? Like he was in Willow or something. These people are stuck in a time warp, but what time is it? SUpposedly 1959, but then I wonder what culture the time warp is from and if it's always supposed to be 1959??? And why is it that the American girl is the only survivor amongst all the Brits? That's weird. And how in the world to the carnies find these people on this island, and why don't the ghosts try to kill the carnies, too? and I never understood why the carnies and the kids ever clashed in the first place?? It's really confusing as to WHY that came about.

The characters in this movie are incredibly boring and they never make the right facial expressions. They also never make the right moves. They don't seem to freak out when their friend turns into a zombie or a guy jumps out of a film strip and kills somebody right in front of them. They don't seem to care that they keep seeing other people in mirror reflections or that they see ghosts playing music that blatently disappear in front of them. They're just like, "well, that's weird... anyway! Let's hang out." So yeah, it's a lame movie. I wouldn't watch it if I were you.
