Review: Amusement (2008)

IMDB rate: 5,1
Genre: Revenge, Clown

I've watched this movie several times and for some reason, I just never remember what happened in the movie. I'm quite sure this isn't a good thing.
Well, let's start off with the fact that I am really terrified of clowns, that's probably why the movie seemed interesting to me, because I'm still searching for the ultimate scary clown movie (still haven't found it yet, unfortunately).

When you see this movies you'll probably think that the movie goes about the clown. Well, not really. That's just one segment. In fact, the movie goes about one crazy dude, that has a maniac laugh, likes to pretend he's some one else and has a fetish for cutting living things.

 I'll have to say, there are several scenes in the movie that contain the scary clown, and these scenes are a bit scary, but that's about it, because this is probably the only good/scary scene in the movie. 

This movie is just another 'gore' movie that is so popular these days, and is absolutely going nowhere. Starting of with the car that's lost in the woods, a babysitter that's getting stalked by some freak, and an 'abandoned' hotel with crazy people in it, well.. we've all seen them before. These 3 stories are coming together by some story about the youth from these three woman, which is making no sense at all. 
Suddenly, one of the woman is seen in a 'FBI interrogation cell', and she's talking to a strange man (obviously the freaky dude) and after that, a woman comes talking with her. Well, all fine and stuff, but really madam, did you not notice, that you didn't quite walked in a FBI station, wasn't it noticeable that there wasn't any lights, or that it was abandoned as hell?! So of course, she get's killed. 

The script seems to exist from random horror story ideas that are put together, and completed with a nonsense story. And even when you're fascinated by the script, it's still going way too slow, which makes you lose your focus (well, this might be the problem of why I never remember this movie).

In short, if you like random segments that contains a bit of joyride, a clown, a freak that put's living people in mattresses and a nonsense story, this is the perfect movie for you ;). Although the clown segment wás actually scary, the rest of the movie is a waste of time. 

My personal rate: 5/10

- This has nothing to do with the review, but if anybody know actual scary movies with clowns or dolls, please let me know ;).


  1. Have you ever seen or would you give a review to IT by Stephen King? :)
