It opens with a death so that’s cool.  A girl gets separated from her friends in the park and someone kills her and hangs her as part of an attraction.  Years later, another group of friends enter Hell Fest.  There are six of them this time though, and for some reason the killer stalks all six.  There are no rules.  There is no motive.  And the ending is crap.

******SPOILER ALERT******

Aside from the dialogue and the acting, this movie was quite the disappointment.  I liked it till the end though.  DJ didn’t like it at all.  Maybe because there were too many writers hands in the cookie jar.  It seems as though every modern horror movie has to have a shit ending, twist ending or fucked up ending.  This one was fucked up.

Sure, two of the girls make it out of Hell Fest alive, but so does the killer and we have no idea how that was possible with the amount of cops surrounding the place.  Then, the killer goes home and puts his weapon in a locked cabinet.  He walks into his living room where a young girl is sleeping.  SURPRISE!!  She wakes up and, guess what, “Hi, Daddy” she says running into his arms.  It was stupid and fucked.

Our score: 37.  We don’t recommend.
