Hell Fest follows a group of friends out to enjoy a night of scares at a traveling haunted attraction. Natalie and her friends begin a nightmarish and murderess game of cat and mouse with a masked serial killer.
I think this story line has been in the back of most everyone’s mind at some point if you have braved any haunted attraction. This is a true fear. How easy would it be to blend into the darkness of the sets with their disorienting lights and sensor triggered jump scares all helping to promote confusion and keep your mind heightened with that sense of fear. The answer to that question is easy and The Other shows us just that.
“The Other”, a masked serial killer uses a top haunted attraction as the backdrop for his night of steady paced carnage that includes some interesting, explicit and well done kills.
The Other does a good job of using the shadows and darkness to stalk and slay this group of unlucky couples but still leaving it all a bit predictable.
