Although this is not the BEST slasher film I've ever seen by a long shot, it was such a a fun ride for a slasher fan like me. I enjoyed every second of this movie. I laughed a ton, at the dad-joke humor, and at the very obvious hints at classic horror films. I thought the movie was going one way and I was wrong, and I liked that. I really enjoyed the gore in this movie because it wasn't over the top, but it was still there, and it was still good enough to make me smile. And like I said, I laughed a ton, because I had a great time watching this movie. Yes, the up-tight critics say this movie has no character development/plot/story. But that's exactly what made me love this movie so much. Hell Fest is a breath of fresh air amongst all the disappointing "scary" movies of my generation. I had a smile on my face during the entire 90 minutes of this film, and in today's standards of "slasher" films, this one guarantees a good time.
