After attending a screening of Hell Fest, I was left with a disturbing thought. The movie itself was really fun and very enjoyable, with great performances from the cast. However, Hell Fest does something few other films have done…it makes you think about a serious ‘what if’ question. Hellfest follows the story of a group of young adults who get targeted by a masked psychopathic killer. The problem is that you can’t tell the masked killer apart from the other workers at the park. In a nutshell, Hell Fest forced me to think about how many people I may have encountered in real life who, completely unknown to me, had those same tendencies.
After a fun day at Six Flags on the day of the press event, I was scheduled to do three on-camera interviews for Hell Fest with the cast and creators.
Tony Todd, gives an interesting answer to the question of what would happen if a Klingon went into a Haunted House
Amy Forsyth, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Roby Attal, and Christian James, find out what would happen if Pidge from Voltron found herself trapped in the Hell Fest Maze.
Greg Plotkin (Director) and Gale Anne Hurd (Producer) reveal their top survival tips to surviving a real-life Hell Fest type experience of a masked psychopath killer coming after you.
After the interviews were finished I was offered the opportunity to walk through the Hellfest Maze itself. Normally, I’d be very up for this but I have to admit I was a little unnerved during the interviews by the consistent screaming and shrieking that was coming from other members of the press who were going through the maze. Mustering up what courage I had, I went through the Hell Fest Maze and experienced first hand what it’s like to be scared, creeped out, and constantly nervous due to not knowing what the hell was going to happen to me next.
