Storyline

For humanity's own good, in a high-security, top-secret facility for the criminally insane, five of the world's most hideous and deranged killers are locked up without trial. Although this may be true, rather unexpectedly, a wide array of lunatics ranging from cannibalistic gourmets to maniacal dentists, and from demented hobbyists to psychotic clowns from hell and insane pious sinners, will escape making their way to Macon County Funhouse for its grand opening night. Soon, with the attraction's crew conveniently replaced by the gang of psychos, the unsuspecting customers who paid for thrills will witness a hack-hack, chop-chop realistic show that goes all the way.

Fun for the whole House
16 June 2016 | by scythertitusSee all my reviews

This one is definitely for horror fans as it focuses on gore and fun rather than actual scares. If you want to sit there and jump for ninety minutes rather than watch an actual story unfold then go watch Paranormal Activity. Instead this film focuses on creating a fun cast of villains, a decent enough set of 'heroes' and a great setting for them to square off in, although the title perhaps should be like 'House of Horrors' rather than 'Funhouse' as most of the premise revolves around people not taking the killings seriously since they are in a modern day house of horrors anyway.

There are plenty of kills, although most involve knives or crushing rather than terribly creative deaths, but that almost adds to the film as for something so wacky and out-there, there is also a good amount of logical thought put into the situation as to how it all occurs. Most of usual questionable aspects of horror movies are answered for and played up, but not in an overt or laboured way.

Overall this is a fun horror flick that fans will love. The only real issue is that the dialogue could have been more fun, but the overall plot and pacing of the movie make up for that and it is certainly an entertaining ride that ticks all the boxes and leaves room for a sequel should they so wish.
