I would like to start with that  the"Fun" myself on its own, the film is quite strange. With one side — this is three novellas combined into one with other — the plot is so not designed of this is the only plot outline is perceived as something separate from the entire movie, so the film is just not is seen as wanted authors — namely, seriously.

The story itself revolves around three girls, which begins to chase the maniac, whom they once offended.

Novella one: the "Road movie".

In this novel told as a maniac luring the girl and her boyfriend in the trap, the result of a terrible car accident. It is impossible not to note the similarity of this novel with the best road movie, like "what a ride". The acting here on the shot well enough, no complaints there is, in short, a good beginning.

The second novel: "Strange clown".

In my opinion, the most interesting and scary story in the film. She works as a nurse with children home parents. It but still here are the giant clown in life-size her scary, it seems terrible. But then, one night, the clown stands up...as it turns out, it wasn't toy! Well, the topic of fear of clowns is not Nova. And film the works of Stephen king "It" to still its scary clown monster in performed by Tim Curry and the eponymous slasher about a killer clown "Fear of clowns" is not so long gone... And not mention stunning horror "Clown killer 1-2", "House of clowns" and others. In General, the novel came out great!

Third novel: "House of pain".

The complete opposite of the second Novella, this part was the most stupid and absolutely wrong! Girl with my friend wants to get into the house of a maniac, at this friend, this kills the maniac, the girl enters the house where the maniac it and catches. In the role of starred the beautiful Jessica Lucas ("Cloverfield"), so it's doubly disappointing that the novel was "no".

The final part: "the Massacre".

And so, in the final part of the movie maniac catches up with all three girls at once, and starts running from the standard serial killer. Than it will end, I reveal I, but the ending here is pretty standard, nothing original in itself is not load.

And what about the technical specifications of the film, everything at the proper level. Directing is almost perfect, the acting is great, the music in the film is just a masterpiece! Composer Marco Beltrami — ("Max Payne", "Mutants", "Resident evil") wrote the music to many horror films, so that he is not a novice in this genre.

The film is very mediocre. However, definitely deserve attention. For all fans of horror films — must watch, even just once.

When I read the description of the film, from my impression is that it will focus on the story. I thought the girls find themselves locked in the trap will have to guess what is on really going on why would built all the picture. However, unfortunately, nothing like in the picture is not seeing remember it completely.

As I already said, the plot is not very interesting. In other things, it consists of the four, it would seem, not related stories. Interesting directorial move, but appallingly stupid and unsuccessful performance. A lot of illogic in compartment with the stupid remarks we are provided.

The acting is also not stands out too, although there is rather the fault of the Director. To allocate can only be a maniac, so terrible (in a good way) laughter, I probably never heard is one of the main positive features of the film, which makes it out there.

The second, not less important positive feature is the presence of the picture is creepy and dark scenes, for example scene with the clown (Hello movie "Poltergeist"). Add the gloomy flashbacks inserted in very good points, and we get great cinematography that makes the film.

Not mention music that creates an atmosphere of horror, fear and despair. The music is chosen because it is necessary, especially there in the same stage with a clown.

In General, the film turned out to be quite diverse in part of the genres, very atmospheric, and unfortunately, it is immensely stupid in terms of plot mistakes. In other matters, if not to pay so much attention to logic, it to scare picture capable, but this is important for the horror genre. The film keeps in suspense up to the very end, and long after viewing, have you the head will sound the terrible disgusting (again in a good way) laughter.

What can you say about the film. Better if you it still not seen — not to read reviews that there has already been given: absolutely not interesting to watch.

Basically, if you not a fan and admirer of horror, worth a look. But if the pros — then, of course, purely out of curiosity you can look.

The plot is kind of like is — but weird. The actors seems to be playing — but not natural...
The end of some very very stupid. In one window put Treasury the subject — this, of course, Yes...

Wanted to do something different, but not really working out. Although, to say that the film is stupid, it is impossible. Once to look very even.
