Utterly terrible and lame slasher
1 October 2016 | by kannibalcorpsegrinderSee all my reviews

Taking a road-trip for college, a group of friends find themselves drawn to an abandoned amusement park where their activities bring them into contact with a vicious serial killer living at the park and must find a way to stop him to get away alive.

This here was a rather atrocious slasher and only had some worthwhile moments. Among the few solid parts here is the fact that there's just an absolutely blistering pace to this one once it makes it's way to the abandoned amusement park where it goes for a strong series of action scenes in the bowels of the facility. This has some of the film's only attempts at suspense and enjoyment as the stalking present here is quite fun with the twirling-car ride stalking, the guys down with the series of traps and the different series of brawling throughout the hiding-grounds deep underground which leads to some decently-gory kills there, giving this the film's best qualities. Still, there's some pretty big flaws to this one. One of the bigger problems here is that there's yet another cast full of utterly intolerable characters that don't for the slightest second scream like a group of friends hanging out with each other much during the majority of the film. There's plenty of cruel ribbing and utterly mean pranks that are supposedly committed in the name of trying to kill time on a road-trip yet none of these really make for an engaging or enjoyable time as there's not much about it that makes them seem that worthwhile to be followed. On top of that, there's the fact that the film features so much time with them driving along to get there that it's simply a matter of not really having that much interesting stuff to do during there as the film's focus on them getting sidetracked by the different attendants at their stops as the unnecessary scenes of them in the snake's cage or going around twice to the motel owner are just perfect examples of that. Not only that, the fact that these here create such an extended running time before the killings start that the pacing is off throughout here with the utterly bland first-half before getting to the rushed stalking scenes in the later half, even though these are well aren't that impressive either with the utterly low-quality work to them and are so haphazardly shot and arranged that there's little impact to be had from them. This one also gets rather artistic for no reason here with the rather inane ability to go for a black-and-white insert for many of the various scenes makes for some rather questionable decisions during these scenes and stick out incredibly well. The main issue, though, beyond all these problems is the fact that the killer is one of the lamest and most non- threatening killers in the genre's history which really takes out so much of the film's powers here by showing him to be a deranged lunatic that makes quips at his victims, tends to come up with the lamest possible kills and is a smiling, arrogant douchebag more than a philosophical cunning mastermind as there's just no way to take him seriously and the gut reaction of his antics is simply laughter. These here are what really hold this one back so much as to be quite disappointing.

Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language, Brief Nudity and a mild sex scene.
