Kind of a better version of "Funhouse" to me...
3 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

Note, I did say to me, I read another review that said they thought "Funhouse" was better, so it is all a matter of personal preference. I liked the setup for this movie, and I rather thought the killer was good too. However, for the most part it is a typical slasher movie with a bit of a predictable twist at the end. Still it moved rather quickly and was bloody so I won't complain to much...what does one expect from a slasher. The story, two twins ride the dark ride back in 89 and are murdered by a demented killer. Ride closes, but is getting ready for a reopen years later. Group of obnoxious college kids are heading for New Orleans for spring break or something. They decide to spend the night in the very said dark ride where the murders were committed (some of the party do not know this fact) and this is where they are picked off one after the other. So there you have it, nothing to different, you get you kills, your nudity and your extremely dumb kids and now you have your typical slasher movie. It even comes equipped with your rather stupid security guard. So the theme for the day when watching this is yelling at the television is "Don't go there stupid" and "what the hell are you doing?". I am also wondering how the heck is this fun house setup anyway? I mean at the beginning it is a ride with a track and carts, but when our gang gets there it seems more setup for a walk through as there is no way you can pick out some of the things you see if it was setup for a cart. Still fast moving and bloody so it was okay. Though these after dark movies are not really to graphic from what I have seen so far, nothing compared to theatrically wide released "hills have eyes" for example.
