Dark Ride is one of the 8 movies that was part of the After Dark Horrorfest last November. I caught a couple of those films on the big screen last year, so I felt compelled to track the other ones down once they came out on DVD.
Dark Ride is a story starring the Sopranos’ Jamie Lynn Sigler. It is about 5 college kids who decided to spend the night in the Dark Ride amusement ride that has been shut down, but soon to reopen after nearly 20 years. A gristly murder shut down the attraction years ago, and the 20 something cast decided they wanted to spend the night there (before they were privy to this info). The killer from the original murder escaped from the Asylum and also decided to take refuge at the scene of his crime.
Dark Ride has plenty of scenes that will make you jump, and their is plenty of gore. The story is kind of weak, and somewhat predictable, but it is a fun little horror flick that is worthy of a rental.
Rating: Out of 5
