the amusement park review

The Amusement Park is technically not a horror film, but it might just be the most disturbing, scariest thing George A. Romero ever directed. Romero became renowned for his iconic Night of the Living Dead, but it often felt like we took the filmmaker – who died in 2017 – for granted. He remained a true outsider for the majority of his career, and we lost something special when he shuffled off this mortal coil.

The Amusement Park, an educational film Romero helmed in 1973 that is only now seeing the light of day, is a perfect illustration of Romero’s talent – and his dark, cynical worldview. Here, he turns what could’ve been a forgotten bit of industrial filmmaking into something shocking, surreal, and altogether upsetting. It’s the work of a master who has been handed next to nothing and still managed to create a singular work of art.

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.
