Full Review Page

For a movie that sells itself on being about escaping a funhouse, I'm kind of pissed that that section of the movie is only the last 25-or-so minutes. The rest is terribly acted bumbling around in a fair/circus. For the most part, The Funhouse is no fun; it's very boring and we don't even get any fun kills and the effects are awful. I guess it was shot okay, but there is nothing else positive worth noting. It's incredibly forgettable and deserves to be forgotten.
