Storyline

In a desperate hour, five teenagers choose a bankrupt amusement park to let loose and pursue a fantasy. Darrin, his girlfriend Chloe, his best friend Stick, the group clown Sanj and Darrin's tag-along kid brother Justin "borrow" their group home counselor's car for a day of escape at Wonder World. Fueled by booze, drugs and unspoken tensions between them, the friends revel aimlessly through the silent rides in search of Ben, a notorious and apparently teen-friendly security guard. Ben allows them to stay, but in return exacts the most private of fees. Soon the rides are alive, but the fantasy holds little solace for those facing demons. Darrin hatches an alternative plan, and by trapping Ben in the dizzying Zipper, they succeed in commandeering the rides. The blaring music, bright lights and bucketing machines of the midway are a futile escape, for in its midst a darker purpose lurks; after night has fallen, Darrin and Chloe intend to end their carnival in a tableau of sacrifice by ...

Haunting
28 December 1999 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

When 'rollercoaster' played the Vancouver International Film Fest earlier this year, I thought it demonstrated a kind of emotional depth and a sense of visual style that are exceedingly rare in film these days. While it would be misleading to label the story 'slow', it does have a vaguely European feel to it - a narrative that unfolds more through place and emotional state than through a linear set of events. Ambitious, haunting, and well worthwhile.
