    A very enjoyable and entertaining 80s film 3 years 3 months ago

    It starts out well with some excellent character acting by newcomer Elizabeth Berridge who manages to convey both a sweetnes and youthful insecurity into her role. The movie then builds slowly and spends a lot of time on the carnival and the characters fooling around, which is all fine and dandy, but it is surprising then that when the teenagers are all locked up inside the Funhouse and the horror and entertainment is really meant to begin - the movie loses some of its appeal. For a movie that was banned and attached to the video nasty list it is dissapointingly very light on blood and gore. Considering how well shot most of this movie was, it also comes as a big let down that the climax is unimaginative, poorly filmed and awfully edited. For its atmosphere and for Berridge's performance it is worth a watch, but don't expect fireworks. 5 years 5 months ago
