“Hell Fest” (2018)

This film is pretty much your typical slasher, with very little deviation from the genre’s conventions. While the film does attempt to have some subversive moments to throw the audience off, it doesn’t do that enough to make this attempt stand out. With that said, this is a film that understands its audience; the film’s build-up is solid, the characters, while having their typical stupid moments you’d expect, aren’t annoying and unlikable, and there are some creatively gory moments. This is a film that, for all intents and purposes, is just fine. For those looking for a brainless and mostly enjoyable slasher that reinvents nothing, this one gets the job done.
