Amusement is an American 2008 anthology horror feature film directed by John Simpson and starring Katheryn Winnick, Laura Breckenridge and Jessica Lucas.


During the opening credits, pictures of three girls when they were children, as adolescents, and as young adults are shown. The girls are Tabitha Wright, Lisa Swan and Shelby Leds. These girls have great potential- “to succeed, be famous, and shine” respectively, according to their senior class yearbooks. It also shows a young unnamed boy who is very psychologically disturbed as it clearly states in his psychiatric report, and that he is extremely dangerous and currently detained.


“Amusement is without question one of the most underrated, undervalued anthologies to see release in the last few decades. This is a thrilling, often creepy piece of work that functions fluidly from opening to closing credits. Director John Simpson makes few missteps and does a fantastic job of building tangible suspense. A few of these shorts are legitimately chilling.” Best Horror Movies
