Movie Review – Hell Fest

Hell Fest was a total cliche. It was very predictable, yet it was enjoyable to watch. The idea of being in a very public place where murders are going on, but unnoticed, was a great idea.

I embrace everything Halloween. This holiday is hands-down my favorite time of the year. I have been known to travel hundreds of miles just to attend a good haunted house or maze. So when I saw the premise of this movie, I was totally stoked.

I’m happy to report that I wasn’t completely disappointed. Let’s face it — there are a lot of really bad horror flicks — really too many to count. This one comes in above the terribles, but below the classics. Let’s call it the Goldilocks of horror movies. The acting was pretty good, but where its decent grade comes from is the setting. They did a great job there. As I was watching the movie, I was thinking to myself that I would love to go there. I know it’s fake, but I wish it were real.

I’m going to research and see if I can find anything as creative as this to attend. The ending — and I’m talking about the final five seconds of the movie  — were pretty chilling. I really liked how they wrapped it up. That right there was a plus, because usually it’s the very end of a horror movie that screws them up. I’m going to recommend this movie; it’s not the best but it will definitely get you in the Halloween spirit.

Grade: C+

About these PeetimesThis was a really short movie. I still put in 2 Peetimes, just in case. I’m leaning towards the 1st Peetime as your best option. As with any movie, that intense feeling has built at the time of my 2nd Peetime. If you use that one, the spell they have cast over you would be broken.

Christene Johnson (RunPee Sis)

RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.

Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
