too much blah blah in stead of action
21 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

Hayride is supposed to be a slasher, an ode to the slashers. And in fact it is really a slasher, can't disagree about that fact but sadly it's missing a few points that are a must be done in slashers. There isn't any point of view from the killer and there's no nudity.

Still I can live with that fact but there's more going on. Sadly this flick is on the boring side because it do has a lot of talking going on and a lot of stupid conversations. But not only that. Most of the killings are done off-camera which naturally doesn't add a positive note towards the horror.

The story itself did had a lot of potential but it's the flick itself that really isn't almost watchable due that fact of not showing the horror.

Hayride is low budget but doens't offer a nice ride.

Gore 0/5 Nudity 0/5 Effects 1/5 Story 2/5 Comedy 0/5
