CommentsContains scenes of horror. Themes include intertwined Horror and Violence, with friends both male and female celebrating an annual Halloween, carnival, theme park called Hell Fest. Innocent celebrators are murdered as the disguised murderer, serial killer walks amongst the crowd with a mask on. The distance between reality and fantasy is very slim in this production, making the murders bloody, gory, gruesome and violent in such a way that even the protagonists sometimes question what is real and what is fantasy. Typical to the Horror genre, Hell Fest draws on the audiences most existential fears, paranoia's, and is designed to scare, terrify and petrify. Added to this mix of terrifying visuals and content are the CGI (computer Graphic Imagery) effects as well as the effects of sound in the theatre release format. All combined, this film does exactly what it promises to do - petrify! It is terrifying.

What the Critics say

24.com
Leandra Engelbrecht quote iconHell Fest is a bland appetiser in the lead up to Halloween. It overuses familiar tropes of the slasher horror genre and doesn't bring anything original to the table.

Tomatometer quote iconHell Fest might give less demanding horror fans a few decent reasons to scream, but it’s neither clever nor frightening enough to leave much of an impression.
