Nearly a decade after two young girls are brutally murdered, the monstrous killer, Jonah, escapes from a mental institution and returns to his familiar killing ground, the theme park attraction "Dark Ride." His unfortunate victims this time are a group of college kids on a road trip that inevitably leads them to the Dark Ride where their night of youthful fun becomes a nightmare
Dark Ride is a tribute to the classic horror slasher movie of the 1980s - think Freddy, Jason and the rest. Whilst I'm certainly not saying this is up to the same standard, if you are up for a bit of gore and some very inventive slasher moments, then I reckon you'll get a good kick out of this movie. Great 'Friday night in' entertainment and at £7.99, a real bargain I reckon. In case you are wondering, I saw this in the States a few months ago! --Film Demon

The honest call-a-spade-a-spade approach to the script is initially a refreshing change from some of the complexities that have tripped up many of the post-'Scream' dead teenager films, however 'Dark Ride' falls into a trap so common with these films in having no characters that the audience can root for when it comes down the the inevitable showdown with the final girl, in this case Jamie-Lynn Sigler of The Sopranos, but even she plays a bit of a moaner.
Three stars is generous but deserved when the nice photography is factored in (check out the chilling shot where a fleeing victim slowly recoils to reveal the killer's creepy porcelain mask glaring over her shoulder), but things end on a confused incomplete note with the requisite twist (which will be seen lumbering over the horizon by well-versed horror fans) revealed and then things pretty much stop dead. Roll credits. Ultimately a little disappointing, but crafted nicely and showing obvious love for the genre, as evidenced in the best line: 'Why [are killer's always named] Jonah? Or Jason? Or Jedidiah? Why not Gus, or Chris, or Ernie?'
But, putting that aside it is a dam good fright fest, lots of creepy scares and plenty of gore, one scene really freaked me out i had to look over my shoulder! (you'll see what i mean!)
It is a tad on the short side with a very confusing ending (to me anyway)...it just seemed to end and that's it. Roll end creds! As i said, hardly original but for a good old scary movie it does what it's meant to do.
Bad acting, bad gore (although most of it is off screen) and a bad attempt at a horror movie.
More like a comedy if you ask me, and its not an intentional one either.
