Product Description

Product Description

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

Review

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

predictable. Boring. Poorly acted. Most of the film is in the dark so you can't see much. Sound is tiresome : loud music, soft muffled talking, so the volume on your remote is constantly in use and you still can't hear everything said. One pretty gory scene when a head is ripped off, very well done. Andrea Bogart has an awesome body, but we only see it for a few seconds. She is the best thing in the film, she seems to know she is in a piece of crap but she does not care. Twist at the end is daft but I will not spoil it for those who have not seen it. Some of the deleted scenes would have given the twist away so you can see why they were deleted. Others should have stayed in the film. Only bother with this if you are a horror fan and dont mind watching crap, you will have seen worse I am sure. Poor stuff from the producers of the Saw films.

Shot back in 2005 and spun out during the After Dark Horrorfest, which allegedly screened films 'too intense' for regular theatrical showings, 'Dark Ride' is a throwback to the simplified slashers that permeated cinematic culture in the early 80s. Therefore it's straight forward in the extreme: in 1989, teenage twin sisters are murdered inside a ghost train at a pier fairground. In the present day, their killer escapes from his cell and returns to the ride and runs into a group of college kids on a Spring Break road trip and the expected results ensue.

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?'

usual stalk and slash movie involving uninteresting characters that are purely cannon fodder for the baddie. basically pointless and boring.

this film won't win any points for originality, or oscars for performances which to say are somewhat laughable, i can't help feeling that some of the actors were reading straight from an autocue!
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.

AWFUL MOVIE!! I wasnt expecting a lot from it but my god it was bad.

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.
