User Review

For the studio pocketbook's amusement, not the audience's.

Rating: 4/10


I wasn't amused with "Amusement".The laughable synopsis on the cover
goes like that: Tabitha,Shelby and Lisa.They're longtime friends on
separate life paths.But they share a horrific destination when a
seemingly innocent incident from their school days comes back to
terrify them.Someone wants payback:warped vengeance…mind-games
vengeance…taunting,shredding,slashing vengeance.Inside a stone-walled
chamber of prison cells and mechanisms of doom,the three women and
other victims face a fierce fight to survive."Amusement" is
terrible.With dumb plot and zero scares it offers nothing even remotely
interesting even for seasoned horror fan.The killer is an
underdeveloped cliché with truly annoying laugh.There is only one
effectively creepy scene in which the emerging female lead is
confronted with a room stuffed with dolls and clowns.The violence is
tame so gorehounds and slasher fans will be disappointed.4 out of 10.
