Trivia

Filmed in Blanchester Ohio where a real life murder took place on August 28th 1996. After years of abuse at the hands of her then boyfriend Carrie Culberson disappeared and was believed to have been murdered by Vincent Doan. He was later accused and indicted in her murder. The remains of Carrie Culberson and her red Honda have never turned up. Several of the Doan family properties were searched, but no evidence was ever found that would lead to the body of Carrie or her car. Doans Father and Brother were also indicted in crimes associated with the murder of Miss.Culberson. Relatives of Carrie later received a $3.75 Million Dollar case settlement from the Blanchester Police for their mishandling of the case that divided the small town. As part of the settlement a statue in Carrie's memory was placed in front of the police station. See more »

Step in the right direction

I was lucky enough not to get caught up in the unwarranted crowd funding hype so I was neither excited or turned off by this one

The good. The mask looks great, courtney gains does a good job, and the carnival setting looks cool.

The bad. Terrible fx and an inexcusable CGI blood effect. Underused Tony Todd and PJ soles. Terrible action, amateur editing and sound mistakes, and a completely wooden supporting cast.

That being said, I am interested to see what the director does next. He had some great core ideas and I think he has the stuff to make a good movie, it just wasn't this one.
