Fright Land amusement park is closing down for the last time. Lack of business and interest have lead to poor sales and no profit. The park's owner, Mr. Hyde (played by Doug Bradley) devises a scheme to sell tickets once again. He hires two backwoods Appalachian men to break into the park after hours and gruesomely dispatch the park's employees. Hyde believes the murders will create a media sensation for the park. People will buy tickets once again just to see where it all happened. Once it's done, they can even begin to sell souvenirs and theme rides based on the murders. Written by
Directed by Cary Hill Written by Cary Hill Starring Doug Bradley, Wendy Wygant, Steve Rudzinski, and Nivek Ogre Distributed by WildEye Releasing Running time 85 minutes
Fright Land is closing, seems no one wants to spend their time, let alone their money at the aging amusement park anymore. The staff of the beleaguered park have agreed to send off the place with a bang, planning on partying the night away on the closing eve. As soon as the gates lock, the bodies begin piling up.
Right from the get go with this one I was thinking "Fun House", classic 80s cult carnival slasher film, but the film showed itself to be more than I expected. It features an interesting cast of characters with Doug Bradley (Hellraiser), Nivek Ogre (band Skinny Puppy, Repo: The Genetic Opera) along side relative new comer Wendy Wygant (Jennifer) and slightly more seasoned actor Steve Rudzinski. Nivek and Bradley obviously help pull an audience to this one right away, just the two of them are worth the price of admission (or DVD purchase) alone. Bradley, and Nivek both turn in strong performances that you would expect, but the rest of the players do admirably also. Granted its filled mainly with lesser known's they put up a decent show, albeit a little flat on occasion.
One thing I was particularly pleased with in the film was that they were able to offer a nice twist in what felt like a very familiar story line, that really made the Scream Park itself feel more tangible. It added an unexpected level of interest and believably to a genre that can sometimes feel a bit lack luster in storytelling. It was one of several really smart choices that help this film stand out in the crowd.
Scream Park will have a strong appeal with many fans. It offers a nice body count, some fun slasher moments, and a nice visual homage to the films many of us watched in the day that grew the genre into what it is now . Add that to a cast that would make any first time director the envy of any set and you have a film that delivers just what you expect going in... A bit of of the yummy goodness we love in slashers, blood, boobs,tension and just an all around good time! Its another example of why Wild Eye Releasing is developing a nice following of fans. They distribute films we enjoy watching, not just once but time and time again! *HeatherOmen* TheHorrorNation.net
