A brother and sister try to uncover the mystery of an old abandoned carnival attraction and the maniac that supposedly thrives within…


” …the film does have some brutal kills but most are taken off camera where they lose their effectiveness. The special effects are not that great either but the camera tricks helped cover them up. With all that being said, the cinematography is beautiful … Overall, Loon is a valiant shot as the slasher but does fall short. Though the film is flawed it does deserve at least one shot.” Horror Society

“The cast are universally bad with Tara Moates being the only stand out and only because she’s very cute looking but thespian wise she also gives the same sort of painfully distracting wooden performances where no matter what happens to who they sound as they’re reading out a shopping list . On top of that we’ve got completely static camera work and disjointed editing on both a visual and audio level.” IMDb


” …a modern-day entry into the teens, trees and terror genre, that effectively encompasses the spirit of its celebrated (and less celebrated) forebears, warts and all. It brings fun, blood and a nightmarish new boogeyman, along with a kickass soundtrack and some modern twists to the tale to keep you on your toes.” Hickey’s House of Horrors
