Hell Fest (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Hell Fest takes the standard slasher tropes we’ve seen a hundred times before and does absolutely nothing new with them.  Like not a thing. Nadda. Zip. It’s like Scream never happened. Okay so, to be fair,  it does set the events at a horror theme park which is kinda different but save for a few moments doesn’t really make the most of it.  Honestly in a way I kinda like the lack of post modernness about it all but this is very much a by-the numbers slasher film that only really worth watching for a few decent & gory kills.

Best Bit: It’s gory
