It's not that Hell Fest is bad. It's just that it makes you feel like 'they could have done more, much more'. [Full review in Spanish].

A simple premise bursting with promise - sadly, not executed all that well.
Full Review | Original Score: 5.5/10
September 28, 2018
In keeping with the not-so-fresh theme, this film is a straight-up, unapologetic slasher.

The look of the movie was kind of soft, it wasn't real gritty. It looked low-budget.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

It is a shame when a movie like this is let down by the very reason for its existence. A slasher movie is only as strong as its slasher and the fear that slasher creates.

Here we have an ingenious concept told with no ingenuity, depriving viewers of even the baseline pleasures of the hack'n'slash genre.

This box of tricks doesn't have neither the ingenuity of homage to the classics nor the critical ambition to reinvent the genre. [Full Review in Spanish]

You should never be bored at a 88-minute movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

Hell Fest is a horror movie that contributes very little in terms of narrative, scares or imagination. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
September 28, 2018
A pretty bad movie that makes a great case for more slashing at horror theme parks.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
October 4, 2018
This is cash grabbing at its most blatant.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/5
October 5, 2018
It has one of the most glaring goofs that I've seen in a long time...
Full Review | Original Score: D+
September 28, 2018
Captures all the fun and excitement of wandering aimlessly through an amusement park with boring people you don't like.
September 28, 2018
If it were any good, it could have been the movie of the moment. Instead, it'll have been forgotten by Halloween.
Full Review | Original Score: D+
September 30, 2018
It delivers the tedious, heavy-breathing buildup associated with the genre, but skimps on the scares and the gory, gooey good stuff.
Full Review | Original Score: D+
September 27, 2018
Falls on the "Why'd they even bother releasing this?" end of the horror cinema spectrum.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
October 3, 2018
Moments of actual horror are rare, however, because the director never does much to build cat-and-mouse tension.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 28, 2018
Tries to get in some weirdness and ambiguity to fuel sequels, but all effort should've been put into this movie, which doesn't have scale or scares to enchant during the competitive Halloween season.

Fundamentally nothing but a walking tour through nice sets in the company of awful people, and I'm sorry, but the sets aren't that nice.

At best, would probably make okay background noise at a Halloween party.
