I was at the actual world premiere of the movie (which was fully
occupied, I don't know what the other reviewer is actually talking
about...) and I can see, why many people will have their issues with
You need to understand, that if the trailer says "In the style of the 80ies", it REALLY means "In the style of the 80ies". It is having all the clishés over and over, that teenagers from now will hardly enjoy this. Gingerclown is clearly a genre movie.
So if you are an eighties child, you'll be more friends with this flick, but unfortunately still it's having several issues.
The actors are quite bad (most of all the woman and her endless yelling/screaming made my ears bleed), there is hardly anything you'd call horror, almost no gore and many of the scenes feel unreasonably stretched. You'll need a lot of patience.
Also the ending...Well, see it for yourself.
I liked the monsters though, even if mostly only their heads were built properly. They had their charm, the famous voice actors had surely their fun. They could've gotten a bit more airtime, but it was okay.
It had some funny moments too, but overall the movie was unfortunately a letdown, it's hard to call this a horror-comedy, when it's not that funny or scary. They tried too hard with all the nostalgic things what made many of the 80ies movies so bad, it was a bit too much in the end.
In 1983, a group of high school kids break into an abandoned amusement park only to realize it's overrun with monsters.
