is a highly misleading film. From the box art, you see some names of
pretty incredible character actors: Tim Curry, Sean Young, Brad
Dourif, Lance Henriksen... the only problem is that their presence is
absent in the film, they are used simply as voice actors for some
truly terrible characters that could have been voiced by anyone else
and it not been even a little different. The film is a
horror/comedy/'80s period piece film that fails to succeed as a
horror film, a comedy, or even an '80s period piece.
acting so bad that you will question if it is intentional and the
dialogue has been succeeded in most first year screenwriting classes
at your local film school. I really tried to like this film but
found it to remind me of a dusty horror VHS that you would find in
the back room on the bottom shelf of your local video store back in
your day. The film that nobody would dare sit through... I mean,
this film is a stinker with a capital S.
a Hungarian 3D film, Ginger Clown is set in 1983 where a group
of high school students (that drive '50s cars and look like they are
FROM the '50s) trick a kid from their school, Sam (Ashley Lloyd) into
sneaking into an old abandoned amusement park to prove his courage so
he can win the affection of Jenny (Erin Hayes), the prettiest girl in
his school (and the worst actress to ever grace the Silver Screen).
Little does he know that the old park is full of frightening and
somewhat eccentric monsters who love to torture innocent human beings
while intensively annoying each other.
film primarily takes place with the carnival itself with some
interesting props and set pieces (even some of the lighting is akin
to Dario Argento) and at night with some noticeable flood lights
aimed at the actors to specifically separate them from the
background. The film on the whole feels uninspired and a missed
image throughout is very grainy/noisy with some shots even having
some distracting motion blur moments that take you out of the film
(probably a fault in codec translation). The standard definition
image is in anamorphic widescreen with an aspect ratio of 2.35:1.
The sound mix is fine with a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 mix. Subtitles
are also on the disc in English and Spanish.
