Hell Fest is introduced as a horror theme park which travels across the country during the Halloween season. A young girl from Cincinnati is shown to be separated from her group during one of the mazes. There she is confronted by a masked figure known as "The Other" (Stephen Conroy). She recognizes The Other as a man who had been following her and her group of friends the entire night. The Other attacks the girl, stabbing her in the gut before hanging her. The young girl's corpse appears to blend in with the other prop bodies as The Other leaves the scene. Natalie (Amy Forsyth) is shown to be arriving at her former apartment where her best friend, Brooke (Reign Edwards), still resides. She greets her old friend but is disappointed to learn that a former classmate, Taylor (Bex Taylor-Klaus), whom Natalie does not get along with is living with her. Though Natalie's visit was planned, Brooke is shown to have been uncertain that Natalie would actually arrive as she had been distant of ...

After Taylor and Quinn are murdered when Brooke and Natalie are trying to escape from the killer, they are looking for an exit from the park. Brooke and Natalie run into the entrance to Hell, because Brooke says it might be an exit. The front is clearly an entrance to an attraction, so there is no way anyone would have thought it would have been an exit from the park. See more »

Can Horror Haters Stop Commenting On Horror?
You don't see me writing a review for The English Patient! So please stop trying to ruin my horror!
Today's "my opinion matters" generation is constantly trying to sway the masses by dropping cheap stabs (pun intended) at a film like this, saying it had bad acting and they didn't care about the characters. I'm not sure if anyone informed you, but this is a SLASHER film. You're supposed to turn off your brain and enjoy the ubsurdity of it, put yourself in their shoes and scream at them when they make poor decisions.
If you're going to watch a horror movie, put down your cell phone, stop tweeting, shut the lights off and WATCH it. Not occasionally look up from your Instagram feed and decide "it's not scary enough." Hashtag till your heart's content AFTER the movie is over, dork.
Hell Fest did it's job and did it's job damn well. Is it Casablanca? No. But it delivered on scares, atmosphere, a damn decent body count and definitely bent the normal slasher rules which was a welcome change.
To hell with the horror haters. Well done, Hell Fest.
