Shawn C. Phillips,
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

Scream Park claims to pay homage to 80's slasher flicks and it really does do that, sadly it's not very good though.
It tells the story of a group of amusement park staff who after closing up come under attack from a pair of masked psychopaths. One with a plague doctor mask and the other a potato sack they get picked off one by one in the traditional genre style.
I liked the setting, but it wasn't really taken advantage of. The kills would have been okay, but they were all cutaway. And the cast, well actually I can't complain about that as they were well above par. Even Pinhead himself is present (Briefly) and demonstrates that he doesn't need to be that iconic character to deliver a fantastic performance.
As the movie goes on and things start getting explained things get a bit silly, ultimately the true concept and motivation is more than a little eyebrow raising and did the movie absolutely no favours.
A sequel is coming, it has no release year and a budget of about 10% of this so I'll keep my expectations low however will certainly give it a chance.
Scream Park does pay homage to the slasher originals, but some bad cinematography and some questionable writing ruin it.
That ones girls teeth
Enough with the Night of the Living Dead footage already
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Having an interesting setting but not exploring it makes perfect sense
Metal fences can only be climbed once per movie
Guys in their 30's (And look it) need ID for booze
