‘Dahmer and Bundy and Gacy – they’re just the ones that got all the press. We house the ones that you whisper about around the campfire.’

Six psychopathic killers escape from a secret secure facility, and take over a Horror Funhouse at Halloween. Carnage ensues!

This is not a complicated film – caricature psychos kill a whole bunch of people in nasty ways. There isn’t a lot of character development here, but it really isn’t needed. I enjoyed the cartoonish nature of the killers – it could make a fun but f***ed up comic book series! There’s an unnecessary attempt at a plot twist towards the end, which really didn’t add anything to the story.

Definitely a comedy-horror, and the humour is hit and miss, but there were a few good giggles to be had. It is much more successful as a colourful gore-fest, and is certainly not for the squeamish. A fun watch if you’re in the mood for some mindless, bloody cinematic violence.
