The Fun Park
Customers who bought this item also bought
Nearly 30 years ago in rural Oklahoma, Bobo The Insult Clown was bludgeoned to death while locking up for the night at the Family Fun Park. This murder and the resulting bad publicity led to the closure of the amusement park. But the legend of a demented, murderous ghost-clown has since grown to legendary stature. In the summer of 2006 a group of High School graduates from Oklahoma City set off to disprove the legend of Bobo the Clown and the haunted Fun Park. Unfortunately for these adventurers, only one survived to tell the tale presented in this terrifying film. Find out for yourself what really happened in this frightening look at an urban-legend come true!

The kids were playing in the Fun Park when the serurity guard told them to leave and if they came back they would be in so much trouble.
You can guess that the kids did come back because they forgot the camera and one by one they got caught by Bobo the Clown and his son the security guard. Bobo the Clown terrorised the kids and pulled one of the girls skin of her face off.
At the end one of the girls survived but she needs help with her therapist all the time now.
I give this film 5 stars.
The horror genre is full, maybe to full, of zombie and slasher films, really unwanted sequels, and just plain jumbled messes of good films made by good directors who are forced to make changes prior to release (just ask George Romero). The one entity that is overlooked is the "horror clown" genre. There hasn't been allot of them, but enough that I want to officially add "Horror Clowns" to the list of genres, along side zombies, vampires, and all the rest. These films can go from good (Clown House), to fair (Fear Of Clowns), gruesome (Dead Clowns), and then there's "The Fun Park", the latest killer clown film, direct to video, that has taken it's rightful place in my newly create "Clown" genre, the bottom of the funny barrel.
The "plot", stolen from about every other film that seems to be released lately, six high school friends decide to take a trek to an amusement park that has been empty for over ten years due to the severe beating of one it's employees, a clown, as he was locking up. It seems our laugh maker, named Bobo, is an urban legend, that annoying story all the locals heard growing up that he still lives there today.
As the film opens, the carnage has ended and the lone survivor Megan (Jillian Murray) is found by the police wandering down a road in shock. She tells her story but the police check the park, and there's no sign that her friends are there, or that anybody was ever there; no footprints, tire tracks, seltzer bottles, nothing. The movie moves back and forth from the psychiatrist working with Megan, and the flashback to the prior night, and the performance "Bobo" put on. Without giving spoilers, I'll just say the biggest problem with this movie is too much talking, not enough clown. Too much time is spent on the psychiatrist who sort of believes Megan, and the flashback of the nights festivities. But that isn't even the worst thing. The worst is one the the friends, and each of these film has one; "The Stoner", is one of the most annoying people I have seen in the movie in a long time. This actor couldn't act stoned if he WAS stoned. You pray for Bobo to take him out early but no such luck. I was surprised Bobo didn't throw him back. Now that would have been a funny clown.

1. Corny dialogue;
2. Bad acting;
3. Weird cinematography (the film kept switching back and forth in every scence so many times that it made me dizzy to watch it-- there is a way to show characters faces while they are talking without cutting EACH time back to the character).
Save your money and your time
The movie is shown like a flashback. One girl walks away from the Fun Park after losing 5 of her friends to Bobo the Clown. I wish I could say something positive about this movie, so I will. It only cost me $10 to buy.
Now that the good's out of the way, we move on to the bad. The acting in this movie was mediocre, at best. You never get a good feel for any of the characters at any point during the movie. You never get the feeling of "there's no hope" for the characters. The lighting was sub-par most of the times, as it felt like you were watching through a night vision lens. The story here...well, there really wasn't one. You learn that Bobo was beaten down in the parking lot after hours one night, and the police never find his body (of which they labeled it as a murder, saying nobody could live from losing so much blood). You also learn Bobo started out clowning at an early age, and was taken away from his mother shortly afterwards. That's about it. You never learn WHY they tried to kill Bobo. You never learn WHY he's now a deranged killer clown. You never learn WHY he cuts off the teens faces and wears them (or puts them on a mannequin's head). All in all, I wish that this movie did not happen. I would recommend that you avoid this movie if you can. If you don't...well, you were warned.
