the amusement park trailer

In the 1970s, Night of the Living Dead director George A. Romero was commissioned by the Lutheran Society to make a movie – the filmmaker’s only work-for-hire film in his entire career. That film, titled The Amusement Park, was a twisted meditation on ageism, and it was thought to be lost. But recently, Romero’s Amusement Park was rediscovered and remastered – and now it’s headed to Shudder. It’s part of the horror streaming service’s summer slate, and there’s a great new trailer for you to watch below.

cursed films review

Have you heard the rumor that real skeletons were used in Poltergeist? Or how about all the mysterious incidents that surrounded the shooting of The Omen?

Each episode attempts to get to the bottom of these stories, and, should they be total bunk, track their origins.
