A twist on the slasher genre, following two death-obsessed teenage girls who use their online show about real-life tragedies to send their small mid-western town into a frenzy, and cement their legacy as modern horror legends.
Part crime caper gone awry, part survival horror film, this 1970s set thriller depicts a harrowing fight for survival after a pair of wannabe crooks botch a bank heist and flee into the desert, where they inexplicably stumble upon Carnage Park, a remote stretch of wilderness occupied by a psychotic ex-military sniper.
A young woman is taken hostage by two bank robbers but when they are both killed she then becomes the prey for a crazy psycho on his private part of desert. This is part survival action/thriller and part horror. The psycho, Wyatt Moss, is a Bible spouting soldier/miner, I'm afraid I didn't find him convincing at all. And he appears to be immune from being shot at point blank range.
The guy who made this was obviously on some kind of Sam Peckinpah/Quentin Tarantino/Grindhouse trip, not at all well done, more annoying in reality. Thankfully Carnage Park only runs half the time of your typical QT movie. The arid California setting was good and there is plenty of graphic violence. Ashley Bell as the Final Girl (or should that be Only Girl?) put in a decent performance, but the guy who plays Wyatt sucked, as did this movie.
Thankfully I didn't pay to see it and I will not waste my time watching it again.
