But for one visitor, Hell Fest is not the attraction — it is a hunting ground. Part of me feels that this may have been done in order to give the characters more screen-time, so viewers would connect with them before knocking them off. Despite being passably entertaining, this film from director Gregory Plotkin, whose only feature-length film before this one was the poorly received 2015 film, Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, the film heavily relies on jump scares and becomes too predictable. Before we get too deep into my thoughts on Hell Fest, let me paint a picture for you. All the scares are new. It starts with the movie's fresh meat, which is represented by six pretty college-age students who giddily treat this like a night at Evil Disney.
Their chemistry on screen is apparent from the beginning, and their friendship comes to life toward the end of the film. And that is where the idea came from. That's why you go to watch this movie and that's what they gave you. Personal: Hell Fest is a good horror film and timely with Halloween nearing. Once there, the teenagers discover a serial killer is on the loose and is blending in with the crowd. The lighting is already menacing, no one will believe your prey as you stalk them, the rent-a-cop authority figures are inherently apathetic, and the jump scares are free.

I have a confession to make. Feel free to share your opinions in the comments section below. There are a lot of labored sets with spiders, corpses, and hundreds of performers that that pop out on our protagonists. Every employee costume is new.

I suppose that this did work for some of the characters. It was filled with believable and actually quite good performances, genuine thrills, a few brutal kills, and great pacing.

These last minutes not only provide the most intense and suspenseful sequence of the film, but also provide one of the best cliff-hangers in a film of this type, with an ending that sets up an opportunity for a sequel. Actually, they all do a pretty good job at reacting realistically and usually pretty smart.
We love this time of year for horror so this movie was a good way to start the season. Additionally, the film is never really scary. Time and time again, the movie reminds us of how a horror theme park is a great place to make frightened people cry wolf. A major defect: the constant fake jump scares brought on the characters only soften any initial nerves. Hell Fest features several actors from well-known horror productions.
