The Funhouse 2/5

Well this is a pretty awful movie by Tobe Hooper. Tobe Hooper is responsible for the masterpiece “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” That film is one of the most gritty, tense and terrifying masterpieces ever filmed. How the hell did he end up making a shitty film like this? Its got a few fun bits in it, which is why it scores a 2 but over all, its pretty lame to be honest. Its full of the clichés that we all recognise, stupid kids go about being irresponsible and end up being stalked by a maniac. Yeah we have seen this kind of stuff before and done way better. It centres around a small theme park and after its closed down for the night, the kids decide to sneak in to a ride called the funhouse.

It is here that they accidentally witness a murder by the parks “Frankenstein” mascot. They end up being pursued by this guy who is actually a freakishly deformed monstrous looking guy. On the whole there is a couple of interesting sequences, but this film doesn’t really grip your attention for long. The acting is pretty terrible too and there’s nothing stunning in the visual department either.
