After the success of the shocking slasher, "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and the eerily vampire tale of "Salems Lot", horror master Tobe Hooper came out with one of his most highly anticipated films yet! While being not as popular as some horror movies, this very rare gem was sadly neglected and barely even heard of throughout the years. Heck it may be low-budget, but I think that during its release it proved to be a very original and nightmarish work of art, showing us the more darker side of how a carnival REALLY can be!
Originally released as a motion picture in the theaters back in 1981, "The Funhouse" was quite the treat for the fan of homemade horror movies. (Those are always the best!) The storyline concerns two young couples who decide to spend the night in the carnival funhouse... BIG MISTAKE! They witness a murder from inside and soon are stalked by a bloodthirsty monster that lurks from inside. One-by-one they fall prey to the numerous booby traps and terrifying surprises until only one remains in a desperate fight for survival against the horror from within!
The actual funhouse itself is a really eerie set, and features some of the most scariest animatronics you'll ever see! (the fat lady one still haunts me today due to that I can't get that bizarre laugh out of my head!) I'd have to say that this may not be all big and bad as Tobe Hooper's other masterpiece, "Poltergeist" (which came out one year later) but it still packs quite punch that no other horror movie can do anymore.
I first saw this on the A&E network a long time ago when I was in the third grade and it scared the hell out of me! It aired again on the Sci-Fi channel and that's when I really started to get into it! Over and over I'd watch and never EVER get tired of it!

All things considered, Tobe Hooper's "The Funhouse" is actually a better movie than his infamous original version of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre." True, you will not a single scene in this 1981 splatter flick to rival the first appearance of Leatherface (i.e., the scene with "THE HOOK"), but overall the production values are better and the atmosphere never goes careening off into the totally bizarre (at least not in my book).
After a title sequence that sets both the setting and the tone, "The Funhouse" begins with a nice nudge-nudge, wink-wink that combines the opening of "Halloween" with the shower scene from "Psycho." Amy Harper (Elizabeth Berridge) has a pesky younger brother, Joey (Shawn Carson), who violates their sibling propriety so badly that she pins him up against the wall and says not only will she not take him to the carnival that is in town, she will, one day, at a place and time of her choosing, get him in a way that will pretty much scar him for life.
Our story really begins when Amy's dad forbids her to go to the carnival, because a couple of girls were found dead after it left a nearby town. Of course Amy not only goes to the carnival with her date, Buzz (Cooper Huckabee) and her friends Liz (Largo Woodruff) and Richie (Miles Chapin), but after enjoying the freak shows and other tacky sideshow attractions, she ends up going along with Richie's brilliant idea to spend the night in the Funhouse. However, before the two couples can get really comfortable they witness a gruesome and unexpected murder on the level below them, and when they make the mistake of letting the killer know that they are there, the fun really begins.
This horror film really benefits from the setting, both in terms of the seedy carnival and the mechanical innards of the funhouse itself.

Tope Hooper directs again another great horror movie as people stay in a funhouse for the night and then start to see the real, funhouse. intense to say for the extreme and gross. when the freakshow, mutant alien looking creature unmasks himself, be prepared for some good times. sorta like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, really. it has a psycho man who has this thing(like Leatherface) in his disposal, and I think I heard a famous line from Massacre as well, it was "what is wrong with you people" I believe the phrase was. original and fun. can you get out of the funhouse

When a group of teens (Elizabeth Berridge, Cooper Huckabee, Largo Woodruff & Miles Chaplin) decide to stay the night at a sleazy carnival. When they witness a murder of a Gyspy (Sylvia Miles), they are trapped inside a ride called The Funhouse. While two Carnivals workers (Kevin Conway & Wayne Doba) are stalking the teens and trying to kill them, one by one. While the teens are trying to live and fight to survival.
Directed by Tobe Hooper (The Texas Chainsaw Massacer, Eaten Alive, Salem`s Lot) brings a visual style to this modern horror thriller with great make-up effects by Rick Baker (An American Werewolf in London). This film has a good lead performance by Elizabeth Berridge (Amadeus) and a terrific one by Kevin Conway (Gettysburg) in three roles! DVD`s has an fine non-anamorphic Widescreen (2.35:1) transfer and an strong Dolby Stereo 2.0 Surround Sound. One of Tobe Hooper Best Films. This film does a funny tribute to Halloween to Psycho in the Opening Scene. This is actually, Based on a Novel by Dean R. Koontz under the Pseudonum-Owen West at that time. (Koontz actually disowned the film before the film`s release, because of Hooper and Screenwriter Lawrence Block wanted to make many changes from his Screenplay). Panavision. Grade:A-.
