BEWARE THE MOON REVIEWS
This type of story seems to be super popular during recent times, and to be fair, I am not mad with it. "A masked serial killer turns a horror-themed amusement park into his own personal playground, terrorizing a group of friends while the rest of the patrons believe that it is all part of the show."
I am a big fan of the whole 'fake amusement park' kind of thing, and did Hell Fest disappoint? I wouldn't say it disappointed, I just wasn't fully blown away. It is what you were expecting really. The characters as a whole are okay, typical teenagers in a horror film, and with the added cocky one - obviously. The script is the same, but I think with a film like this, you won't watch it for an exciting script. You watch it as you like the idea of the story and are pretty sure it's just going to be a simple and easy horror to watch - and you'd be right.
Hell Fest is fun, and is a story close to my heart in some ways. I love scare attractions like in this film, less of the rides and amusement parks mind you, and more of the walking around mazes and such. I tend to do one every year, and the same one too - it's that good. So watching this, it felt like home in a way, and also made me think - some of the park uses the actual dead bodies of victims as props and no one realises - what if this happened in real is where my brain went! I mean, I have heard of stories of real bodies being used for Halloween decorations but it does make you think - in a weird way - I'll stop now before someone sends me off to talk to someone...
I liked Hell Fest, I really did. It's simple and fun and sometimes that is all you need in a horror film. It's also entertaining so I don't think you'd find yourself regretting watching it or clock watching. I liked it, and I liked the ending - I wouldn't call it a twist, but it's a nice little shock, right at the end. I also do really like Bex Taylor-Klaus and her character - good old comedy character right there - just what you want in a film like this!
Watching horror films since like 2003, when I could stand dead bodies..
