    Looks pretty good, and I'm a sucker for movies that take place on Halloween and in fun houses. It's too bad it looks like the DVD is hard to find though, don't see it for sale anywhere.

    i got mine at a local indie store for 14.99 they were lucky to get it in because they have 6 stores across the state and only got 1 of 12 copies on order

    amazon had a few but i guess their out now

    Just watched it as per this recommendation. It wasn't bad at all, a fun little flick. It had a nice production, some cool scenes, it was enjoyable enough. Although it's VERY teeny bopper, and only has an 80 minute runtime. If you can get over those 2 things its worth a watch.

    I've had the German R2 DVD (with English Audio) since last year. I should watch this soon I guess.

    Just watch the trailer. This looks pretty sweet. I'm going to try and find it and check it out. The clown bit looked creepy.

    I rented this one last evening at Hastings, but haven't had a chance to view it yet.

    Ryan Little was the director of this one, and I actually already own two of his previous films: Saints and Soldiers was a crtically acclaimed WWII film shot on a micro-budget that obtained a big film look, and Outlaw Trail: The Treasure of Butch Cassidy which was a family/adventure type of film.

    I'll be interested to see how he tackles the Horror genre now...

    That's what I gathered from the trailer. At first I thought it was a remake of the Funhouse but I don't think that's the case.

    It turned out to be a really fun movie, and much in the 80's vein in some respects. The production was solid, the acting well done, and the pacing never really dragged. I'm interested in seeing what genre of film Ryan Little will try for next.

    Enjoyed this as well. It was pretty good for a indie movie.
    Since no one mentioned this yet, there was a little surprise after the end credits :)

    Got it from Netflix and will be watching maybe tonight or this weekend. Looks like it might actually be good, from the trailers. According to the Sleeve from Netflix it is rated NR.

    Could've easily gotten a PG-13 rating.

    I liked it. It wasn't great but it went by fast and had a couple cool moments.

    Clown was underused though.

    I thought it was pretty average. Nothing special and a little underwhelming. I wouldn't say the acting was bad. I didn't like the colour palette. It felt like it wanted to look like a SAW film. Thought there could of been more blood and scares.

    The trailer looks decent. I'll pick it up if I find it.

    I was actually pleasantly surprised by this. It wasn't great but It was definitely a step up for your average teenage run a muck horror flick. Pretty good acting with some creepy sets and characters. I also felt that it got better as it went on. I would recommend it.
