USA 2012

 

On the final night of its operation, the employees of the aged "Frightland Park" decide to throw a farewell bash full of underage drinking, pot, and sex. What they did not plan for was the presence of two masked murders who begin throttling, hacking, slashing, slicing, and frying their way through the payroll. What could have been a good stab at an actual old-fashioned stalk and kill slasher film (with a bit of a nod to THE FUNHOUSE) minus all of the knowing winks, with a surprising if not exactly novel twist is ruined by said twist being spoiled by official synopses (including the disc's back cover) as if it was meant to be given away from the start. Doug Bradley (HELLRAISER) has a single scene cameo as the park's owner.

Comments

Wild Eye Releasing's single-layer DVD features a progressive, anamorphic transfer of this competently-shot HD production looks a bit flat likely due to the original shooting as well as the color grading (usually the behind the scenes video is a good indication of what the sets looked like in terms of lighting before they were altered digitally for mood, but the bloopers here have been augmented with film-look type effects). The Dolby Digital 2.0 stereo audio is cleanly recorded for the most part, but some dialogue could have stood to be ADR'd. Extras include a rather dry audio commentary by the director discussing shooting during inclement weather that rendered parts of the live sound recording unusable, getting an actual orchestra to record the main theme (and finding music for the rest including some local bands), and some background on the locations (shot during the park's maintenance period). Also included are the aforementioned bloopers as well as a trailer for the film (along with trailers for other Wild Eye titles).
