The introductions to the characters feel contrived and their dynamics are derivative, and the dialogue feels like a poor caricature of middle school speak.

It's not really a trick or a treat. Think throwaway instead.

Can frighten you only because it's so bad.

It may be a great setting, but what happens there is far too familiar, even cliché.

The movie might seem like nothing special on paper, but its simplicity is its greatest strength.

Hell Fest is a typical teen slasher film that's refreshingly free of demonic possession, but also free of originality.

The climax is badly planned. [Full Review in Spanish]

What sets this slasher apart is the detailed production design from Michael Perry with each set piece invoking a different style of horror film tradition and Tobe Hooper's body of work an obvious influence.

An agreeably good-natured fright-fest that gleefully evokes the spirit of sideshow haunted houses.

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].

At its best, Hell Fest makes inspired use of its amusement-park setting, but it ultimately counts for naught when the plotting is this threadbare and the characters this insipid.

[Hell Fest] promises a frightful time if you are not very demanding of the genre. [Full review in Spanish]

Hell Fest is a horror movie that contributes very little in terms of narrative, scares or imagination. [Full Review in Spanish]

I want to go to this haunt. Like yesterday. This place is friggin' awesome.

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.

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.

It wasn't anything new, it was old riffs done in a way that was actually quite efficient.... The nastiest is the right level of nasty, the silliness is the right level of silly.

Plotkin's relentless button-pushing, coupled to the script's cringe-inducing yooftalk, instead mark Hell Fest as unmistakably the work of middle-aged execs trying to jab suggestible teenagers back into cinemas.
November 16, 2018
They did this 40 years ago, and better, in 'Halloween.' It's getting really, really tired.
November 15, 2018
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]
