Dark Ride (2006)

Directed by Craig Singer.  Written by Singer and Robert Dean Klein.  Starring Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Patrick Renna, David Clayton Rogers, Alex Solowitz and Andrea Bogart.

Plot: a group of college kids decide to tour a closed Dark Ride the same night a psychopath escapes from a mental institution


Ten years after a brutal murder in the Dark Ride, these stupid kids enter it at night.  What they don’t know is that the killer has escaped the asylum and is coming back to the Dark Ride.  Of course, they partake in some drugs while in the haunted ride.  Stupid.  Not a place I’m gonna smoke up.  And then they get really stupid when they start separating to look around, which is when the killing starts.

Cathy (Sigler) is a bitch!  Jen (Bogart) is crazy bananas.  We didn’t care about any of them, including the killer, so we couldn’t even root for him.  We liked the cast and the acting was okay, but the story fell short.  Especially that “twist” ending.  Such crap.  Such an abysmal motive.  The dialogue was contrived.  There was no Freddy Claws.  It wasn’t scary at all and it could have been.  They even through a black man into the movie halfway through just so he could get killed – Cliche much.

Points for cast and boobs, but little else.  We pretty much hated it.  Our score: 17/100.
