Customer Reviews

It was a great movie that had a good twist and good looking actors.
Suzette Nelson
It isn't a bad thing really, but yeah i saw that twist a mile away, but just like the ride itself - you know what you are here to see and they did a good job at it.
M. Bartel
On the same night, a group of kids on their way to spring break decide to spend the night in the same dark ride, which is scheduled to reopen three days hence.

In between screenings of movies at the After Dark Horrorfest (a.k.a "8 Films 2 Die 4"), when we were discussing the relative merit of the films there was a general consensus that if the distributors (Lionsgate and AfterDark Films) had their druthers, then it would be "Dark Ride" that would be their choice for the film to be selected as the best of the fest and get the general release. That honor when to "The Abandoned," which was something of a surprise to me, but "Dark Ride" would have been a safe choice because studio executives would recognize it as your standard formula horror film circa 1980s (e.g., Tobe Hooper's "The Funhouse" came out in 1981). Of course the heart of the slasher film is to put a bunch of soon to be dead teenagers in a specific location, such as Camp Crystal Lake or a carnival fun house, but one of the hallmarks of the genre in the 1980s was that there was always some story about what happened once upon a time in that particular place and you have to pay attention to it because it not only tells you who the slasher is but also another part of the puzzle that gets revealed at the end as the "twist."

One thing to say for this 2006 horror film from director Craig Singer ("Kill Charlie"), is that he is working with much better cameras and film stock than Tobe Hooper was back in "Funhouse." "Dark Ride" certainly does not look like a low budget splatter flick from way back when, but it definitely embraces the genre.

I watched this movie knowing it was a slasher flick and it was part of the 'After Dark' collection. I have to say, I'm not really all that impressed with that collection.

Penny Dreadful could stand alone. The Hamiltons was a very good new look at an old theme. Those two were the best of the group.

This could very well be the worst.

Nothing new. Acting was poor. The action didn't take place until late in the flick. With other great slasher movies out there like Friday the 13th, Halloween, Black Christmas and so many more, I was sorry to have wasted my time on this one.

It's schlock. Pure and simple. Just another display from no new angle.

When I first saw the commercials for HorrorFest, I was quite excited. I checked out the previews online, and checked back every week or so to see when they would start posting venues, and then dates and times. When I finally had all the information needed, including MapQuest directions...it all fell flat. The directions were poor, and so I arrived too late to bother seeing the first movie I had planned to see that night, and the next TWO were completely sold out. It was three hours until _Reincarnation_ was going to start, so there seemed little reason to bother hanging around the Elizabeth outlet mall. HorrorFest had become dead to me.

For some reason, I had had no idea that these movies would be released on DVD, but when I did, I thought I might give HorrorFest a second chance. I had previously found _Reincarnation_ on the eBay gray market, and wasn't thrilled. So I ordered up the official releases by way of immediate interest, and picked this one up first.

I REALLY hope the others are far better than this one.

This movie intrigued me first because it seemed that there might be a comic element to it--the set-up seemed so cliche (insane killer escapes asylum to return to the spot of his original crimes, just when a group of college kids make a stopover on their way out on Spring Break), that I thought there might be a chance for some fun--over the top violence that might, like _Shaun of the Dead_, both make fun of and pay homage to its genre.

But no.

The humor of _Dark Ride_, if there is indeed humor to this, is thin. With the prodigious amount of blood and guts and brutality that has already blessed the genre, the bar is now high, and this movie does little to meet that bar.

I don't see why this film didn't make the movie theatre mainstream. Dark Ride is your standard slasher film, bunch of kids on a road trip, killer on the loose, where have we seen this before? Uh, I dunno....Halloween, Friday the 13th, Sorority house massacre, need I go On? Ok, well the angle on this film is the setting, in an amusement park funhouse. It quickly becomes cliche in a veritabal you win of slayings. If you wanted to you could place bets on which one dies next. At least make some fun out of this so-so slasher film.
Yes this film had gore in it, some of it pretty good. However, because of the enclosed funhouse setting I felt that this film was very boring. However this film adds a scream type angle where someone in the cast is there to add a fine assist to the killers agenda. Not bad, but kind of predictable. The only surprises in this film is the gore was pretty messy in some parts.
DVD extras include 2 making of featurettes, deleted scenes, Story boards, and director comentary.
Bottom Line:..............Standard Slasher Fair, not very memorable, Could've been much better.
