Stalk­ing and blood­let­ting

Sunday Tribune - - SUNDAY MAGAZINE - KEITH UHLICH

HAL­LOWEEN – the one time of year when even the stuffi­est among us can let out our in­ner mon­ster. But some peo­ple are more prone to de­monic be­hav­iour than oth­ers.

Take the hoodie-sport­ing, fright­mask-wear­ing, “Pop Goes the Weasel”whistling cut-throat (Stephen Con­roy) at the cen­tre of the lack­lus­tre Hell

Fest. He has a habit of stalk­ing and stab­bing teens. One un­lucky gal gets offed be­fore the open­ing cred­its have fin­ished rolling: she’s hung, blood­ied and bat­tered among the plas­tic prop bod­ies in an amuse­ment park haunted house, only to be dis­cov­ered three days later.

The girl’s death quickly be­comes ur­ban le­gend, a glee­fully gory story shared be­tween col­lege friends Natalie (Amy Forsyth) and Brooke (Reign Ed­wards). This is all an un­wit­ting pre­lude to their own night of ter­ror at a car­ni­val known as Hell Fest.

Evil Hoodie Man ini­tially keeps his dis­tance,and then the blood­let­ting be­gins.
