This was beyond garbage. Don't waste your time with it. I tried to rate it 0/5 but the system would not allow it.

0.25 STARS: Different, but pointless.

"The makers of "The Fun Park" tried to do something a little bit different with this flick. What appears to be a slasher flick with a carnival and clown theme is really anything but the kind. "The Fun Park" is about the mystery surrounding a clown who was supposedly beaten to death some years ago at a fun park. When some stupid teenagers go to "The Fun Park" for some action, they get more than they bargained for. This seems to be a pretty good plot, but the makers of "The Fun Park" tried to be different in how they related the story to the audience. What transpires in "The Fun Park" is a backwards and disjointed effort at mixing past and present events that results in an awkward and tedious movie that reflects poor design and effort on the makers of this flick.
Ultimately, "The Fun Park" is one of the most bungled, disorganized and pointless films I have ever seen. There is no theatrical structure to this movie whatsoever, and the movie lacks suspense as a consequence. There is very little in the way of scares in this movie, and although I tried very hard to like it, I could not get over the way in which this movie unfolded. Clearly, the movie would have been better if the story was communicated to the audience in a different way. Anticlimactic would be a good way to describe "The Fun Park" except for the fact that there never was any rising action or climax to begin with. Also, the acting in "The Fun Park" is clearly below average which only accentuates the poor execution associated with this movie. While "The Fun Park" attempts to be different, the movie trips over itself at every turn and the result is a prime example of cinematic incompetence that frustrates the viewer. Basically, "The Fun Park" never gets off the ground because of these inherently fatal flaws.
I think clowns can be scary, but this movie fails in its essential purpose. "The Fun Park" is not scary at all. In fact, it sucks. If you want to see a good scary movie about a fun park, I recommend "The Funhouse" instead which is a structurally sound horror movie that utilizes the fun park setting to perfection creating suspense and plenty of scares along the way. Hell, even "Clownhouse" is miles ahead of "The Fun Park". Unfortunately, I cannot recommend "The Fun Park" to anyone."

"This film was good as well with Bobo the Clown terorising the kids that went to the Fun Park.
The kids were playing in the Fun Park when the serurity guard told them to leave and if they came back they would be in so much trouble.
You can guess that the kids did come back because they forgot the camera and one by one they got caught by Bobo the Clown and his son the security guard. Bobo the Clown terrorised the kids and pulled one of the girls skin of her face off.
At the end one of the girls survived but she needs help with her therapist all the time now.
I give this film 5 stars."
The Fun Park- Less Talk More Clown

"What is it about clowns, those face-pained funny looking guys with the big shoots, the balloon animals, and the annoying voices, that if you put a large group of people at a party with a clown, everybody's laughing at his antics. Have you ever been to a children's party where they hired the town clown to entertain? If you have, picture you and that clown alone in a dark room. Would he be so funny then?
The horror genre is full, maybe to full, of zombie and slasher films, really unwanted sequels, and just plain jumbled messes of good films made by good directors who are forced to make changes prior to release (just ask George Romero). The one entity that is overlooked is the "horror clown" genre. There hasn't been allot of them, but enough that I want to officially add "Horror Clowns" to the list of genres, along side zombies, vampires, and all the rest. These films can go from good (Clown House), to fair (Fear Of Clowns), gruesome (Dead Clowns), and then there's "The Fun Park", the latest killer clown film, direct to video, that has taken it's rightful place in my newly create "Clown" genre, the bottom of the funny barrel.
The "plot", stolen from about every other film that seems to be released lately, six high school friends decide to take a trek to an amusement park that has been empty for over ten years due to the severe beating of one it's employees, a clown, as he was locking up. It seems our laugh maker, named Bobo, is an urban legend, that annoying story all the locals heard growing up that he still lives there today.
As the film opens, the carnage has ended and the lone survivor Megan (Jillian Murray) is found by the police wandering down a road in shock. She tells her story but the police check the park, and there's no sign that her friends are there, or that anybody was ever there; no footprints, tire tracks, seltzer bottles, nothing. The movie moves back and forth from the psychiatrist working with Megan, and the flashback to the prior night, and the performance "Bobo" put on. Without giving spoilers, I'll just say the biggest problem with this movie is too much talking, not enough clown. Too much time is spent on the psychiatrist who sort of believes Megan, and the flashback of the nights festivities. But that isn't even the worst thing. The worst is one the the friends, and each of these film has one; "The Stoner", is one of the most annoying people I have seen in the movie in a long time. This actor couldn't act stoned if he WAS stoned. You pray for Bobo to take him out early but no such luck. I was surprised Bobo didn't throw him back. Now that would have been a funny clown.
