For this coward, however, I found myself surprisingly enjoying HELL FEST. I enjoyed the characters and their interactions. The use of a haunted house attraction as the setting was pretty smart and led to a good mix of tension and earned fear releases.
If you love those slasher romps from the 80s and you feel like spending time in an insane amusement park while watching characters worth rooting for get picked off by the world's most patient serial killer? Then Hell Fest delivers.
If you've got a friend who isn't into horror movies, this isn't the one that'll change his or her mind, but for someone who's undeniably drawn to the campy slasher sub-genre, this fairly straightforward thrill ride is a good time.
