hell fest

Update: A new press release informs us that Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Happy Death Day) will compose the score for Hell Fest. Our original article follows.

In recent years, I’ve become a huge fan of haunted house attractions. Every year, Universal Studios and Knotts Berry Farm hold Halloween events with scary mazes which are a whole lot of fun. Some of my friends who love horror films absolutely refuse to ever go to these events. One of them even fears that she might be killed in a maze and nobody would notice and just think it’d part of the show, and her dead rotting carcass is just another gruesome prop in the set design.

Hell Fest is the movie version of that idea, and while the execution looks like a bland studio horror film, I’m intrigued enough by the idea and horror theme park setting to see this film in theaters. Check out the Hell Fest trailer below.
