review by
Mike Haberfelner

Daryl (Chris Burns) and his best friend Bart (Juistin Bowen) have found jobs over Halloween at the Scare Zone, a scarehouse only open for the season. Now the job itself - chasing visitors around with an axe wearing a mask - is a bit on the dull side, the Scare Zone's owner Oliver (Simon Needham) might be a bit full of himself, and not all of Daryl's colleagues are a total joy to be with - but there's also Claire (Arian Ash), the goth girl who runs the gift shop, and even if she has an unapproachable facade, she seems to have taken a liking to Daryl - and he to her as well. So things are looking up ... or at least they would be if there wasn't a serialkiller on the loose in the scarehouse, going first and foremost after the employees of the Scare Zone, and he seems to have a soft spot for Claire - a soft spot on the psychotic side of things of course ...

 

Now this isn't a movie that re-invents the wheel - but then again, it's my guess that it hasn't set out to. Actually it's a slasher movie that follows the slasher formula very closely - but doing so, it's much more entertaining than one would expect it to be, as it's a very witty movie without ever going full moronic or trying for outright parody, it's got relatable characters one can actually care about, it does well on both the suspense and the jump scare side of things, and its scarehouse backdrop comes across as believable - probably owed to the fact that it's writer/director Jon Binkowski's day-job to create attractions for theme parks -, and it's woven into the story very well without ever feeling forced. So if you're looking for cool genre entertainment, look no further.
