I have no idea why this movie is getting so many bad comments. The reviewers must have been expecting an actual "horror" movie - where you get scared and throw your popcorn around. I think the first clue that you shouldn't take this movie seriously is the fact that IT IS A 3-D HORROR MOVIE! I knew going in to the theater at Sundance Film Festival that it would be campy and satirical and silly. And it turns out it was exactly that.
I enjoyed it as a kind of homage to 80's B horror flicks in America. It had all the right ingredients:
a deserted place (amusement park) that used to be fun but has been abandoned because BAD THINGS HAPPENED THERE
unrequited love (boy likes girl who likes other boy, 1st boy gets to "save" girl, making him wonderful and attractive)
group starts out on dangerous search to solve a mystery, couple splits from group to search alone (what will happen?!)
running/chasing scenes that involve tripping, falling down
etc, etc, etc
This is so Scooby Doo meets every horror film made from 1975 to 1989. Plus it's 3D!
I got exactly what I expected from this movie. It's dumb, it's silly, it's not really scary at all -- I had a great time.
