So I just watched this movie. It wasn't particularly great, but I guess
the short time Tony Todd is in the movie makes it worth it. Basically
these high school kids get stuck on a Saturday morning field trip to
make up for a writing assignment that they didn't do. None of them are
particularly happy about it, but they don't want to repeat the grade.
We're treated to quick introductions as to these "troubled" kids and
their plights(Which on the by and by are never really used in the film,
or even brought up later). Anyway, the kids end up going to this
railroad museum which is where we get a small dose of Tony Todd and his
wonderful creepiness, but alas it does not last. After leaving the
museum the kid's bus crashes and they are suddenly alone the broken
down bus in the middle of nowhere, when they see a carnival. Of course
madness follows. The film is pretty predictable, has average to crappy
acting, and all the effect budget pretty much goes into one
thing(You'll know it when you see it). I have to admit the idea was
good, but the lack of budget and poor execution brought the thing as a
whole down. If you have nothing else to watch, or just watch pretty
much any horror movie that comes out(I'm guilty of this) it may be an
all right way to kill some time. Otherwise you may want to skip this
one.
