The Funhouse Massacre
Six of the world’s scariest psychopaths escape from a local asylum and proceed to unleash terror on the unsuspecting crowd of a Halloween funhouse, whose themed mazes are inspired by their various reigns of terror.
Why we’re looking forward to this: Two words. Robert Englund. Though Elm Street is a long way in his rear view mirror and he’ll never top playing everybody’s favourite dreamy psychopath, Englund is always worth watching in whatever he attaches his razor sharp claws to.
Set on Halloween, when all the best psychos come out to play, Andy Palmer’s The Funhouse Massacre has Englund playing a prison warden in charge of keeping the aforementioned nutcases in line, but given the premise he’s clearly not up to the job, and we imagine that the bulk of the movie will consist of him channelling Doctor Loomis as he tries to stop the holiday havoc.
Here at TIH we love a good Halloween maze, but we have never come across actual killers while nervously edging our way through them. That’s exactly what the cannon fodder in The Funhouse Massacre will be up against, though, as each of the six escaped psychopaths take up residence in mazes dedicated to their own particular crimes.
We’re hoping for highly imaginative scenarios and kills in The Funhouse Massacre which, coupled with the sheer entertainment value of Robert Englund, should make for a fun movie treat this Halloween.
The Funhouse Massacre is due for release in time for Halloween.
