This merry-go-round just broke down.
Pros: Some semblances of dark humor and a convincingly seedy carnival setting.
A slow, mechanical and flat-out derivative waste of a novel concept.

Is Funhouse fun? Not really.
Pros: Nice concept, effective setting, well done final half hour.
Cons: The first 2/3 of the film, Hooper's trademark uncertainty, ends shortly after it gets interesting.
