As employees of a closing amusement park get the beers in to bid farewell on the last night, they are set upon by a duo of masked killers looking to paint the rides red with their blood.
Low-low budget horror movie enthusiasts, welcome to Fright Land. It’s closing time, but before they bow out, they give you one last fright: a slasher movie lover for slasher movie lovers. The kills are interesting, inventive and well thought out. Although, the hanging of the black security guard may have been an unintentional low blow. Eek!
Half the cast give passable performances, and of course, Doug Bradley easily steals the show with just one scene. Sound and editing, as well as other technical aspects, could have been tighter, but that’s all part of the fun and games. Sure we all want to be scared, but one should never take a slasher movie too seriously.
I can’t possibly spoil this for anyone, but the one thing that truly baffles me is that the big twist is the movie’s worst kept secret. Be it on Amazon or be it on IMDb, it’s in every damn synopsis. Was this detrimental to my enjoyment of the film? I’ll never know, but I won’t lose any sleep over it. Still, if this movie piques your interest – don’t read up on it.
If you like your 80s-inspired, blood-drenched super soakers in the vein of say 2003’s low budget slasher, Halloween Camp then Scream Park could be the very thing to satisfy your lust for the shiny red stuff. Admittedly not many come to mind, but despite any shortcomings, this may be the 2nd best amusement park based horror movie I’ve seen, behind the Charles Band-produced Ghoulies II (1988).
