Hell Fest Reviews

November 16, 2018
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.

They did this 40 years ago, and better, in 'Halloween.' It's getting really, really tired.

It has one of the most glaring goofs that I've seen in a long time...

This is cash grabbing at its most blatant.
October 2, 2018
Frustratingly by-the-numbers, depressingly formulaic and disappointingly rushed during its climactic stretch.

It delivers the tedious, heavy-breathing buildup associated with the genre, but skimps on the scares and the gory, gooey good stuff.

If it were any good, it could have been the movie of the moment. Instead, it'll have been forgotten by Halloween.

You've seen it all before, and better: A blade to the chest, an axe to the leg, a syringe to the eye.
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
A pretty bad movie that makes a great case for more slashing at horror theme parks.

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.
September 28, 2018
A competently crafted slasher film rendered instantly forgettable by its disinterest in character, plot, and motivation, let alone original ideas.

The premise allows for some spectacularly spooky sets, though director Gregory Plotkin and a team of screenwriters fail to use them for anything all that scary.
