Reviews: HELL FEST / NIGHT SCHOOL / SMALLFOOT

J Bryant and AngieBee discuss the throwback horror howler HELL FEST starring Amy Forsyth, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Reign Edwards, and Tony Todd; the comedy NIGHT SCHOOL starring Kevin Hart, Tiffany Haddish, Taran Killam, and Ben Schwartz; and the animated family pic SMALLFOOT featuring the voices of Channing Tatum, Common, Zendaya, James Corden, and LeBron James.

A MASKED SERIAL KILLER TURNS A HORROR THEMED AMUSEMENT PARK INTO HIS OWN PERSONAL PLAYGROUND, TERRORIZING A GROUP OF FRIENDS WHILE THE REST OF THE PATRONS BELIEVE THAT IT IS ALL PART OF THE SHOW.

COLLEGE STUDENT NATALIE (AMY FORSYTH) IS VISITING HER CHILDHOOD BEST FRIEND BROOKE (REIGN EDWARDS) AND HER ROOMMATE TAYLOR (BEX TAYLOR-KLAUS). IF IT WAS ANY OTHER TIME OF YEAR THESE THREE AND THEIR BOYFRIENDS MIGHT BE HEADING TO A CONCERT OR BAR, BUT IT IS HALLOWEEN WHICH MEANS THAT LIKE EVERYONE ELSE THEY WILL BE BOUND FOR HELL FEST – A SPRAWLING LABYRINTH OF RIDES, GAMES, AND MAZES THAT TRAVELS THE COUNTRY AND HAPPENS TO BE IN TOWN. EVERY YEAR THOUSANDS FOLLOW HELL FEST TO EXPERIENCE FEAR AT THE GHOULISH CARNIVAL OF NIGHTMARES.

BUT FOR ONE VISITOR, HELL FEST IS NOT THE ATTRACTION – IT IS A HUNTING GROUND. AN OPPORTUNITY TO SLAY IN PLAIN VIEW OF A GAWKING AUDIENCE, TOO CAUGHT UP IN THE TERRIFYINGLY FUN ATMOSPHERE TO RECOGNIZE THE HORRIFIC REALITY PLAYING OUT BEFORE THEIR EYES. AS THE BODY COUNT AND FRENZIED EXCITEMENT OF THE CROWDS CONTINUES TO RISE, HE TURNS HIS MASKED FACE TO NATALIE, BROOKE, TAYLOR AND THEIR BOYFRIENDS WHO WILL FIGHT TO SURVIVE THE NIGHT.

The Killer's mask was designed by Tony Gardner's Alterian Incorporated, which also designed the Killer's mask for HAPPY DEATH DAY and SCREAM. (IMDB)

NIGHT SCHOOL follows a group of misfits who are forced to attend adult classes in the longshot chance they’ll pass the GED exam.

NIGHT SCHOOL is the first commercial film that Kevin Hart has written. He's only ever written comedy specials before this. (IMDB)

An animated adventure for all ages, with original music and an all-star cast, SMALLFOOT turns a myth upside down when a bright young yeti finds something he thought didn’t exist—a human. News of this “smallfoot” throws the simple yeti community into an uproar over what else might be out there in the big world beyond their snowy village, in an all new story about friendship, courage and the joy of discovery.

The film's editor, Peter Ettinger, created the language and performs the high-pitched squeaking vocals for the Smallfoot (known as "smallfoot gibberish"). (IMDB)
