I saw this movie in the theater when I was in Hong Kong last August. It was in 3D. The movie poster rocks but unfortunately the movie itself was terrible.....and I enjoy bad movies! At least I got some cool looking "Park" 3D glasses!

I just got the DVD from DVDShelf (or whatever it's called now). It comes with 1 pair of red/blue 3-D glasses. The 3-D scenes are only about 15 minutes total. A little 3-D icon appears in the upper left hand corner of the screen letting you know that the scenes are coming. Maybe it was just me, but I thought the 3-D effects were a blurry mess.

I had read a couple bad reviews, but the idea of a haunted amusement park appealed to me. Unfortunately, the movie wasn't scary and the sets were unimpressive.

Overall, it was pretty disappointing.
Speedy thing goes in. Speedy thing comes out.

Hmmm ...I was planning on including this is in next order, but I may reconsider.

Sex is nature's way of providing each and every one of us with a free home entertainment system.

I'm a huge fan of 3-D movies, but I can't recommend this one at all. The 3-D sequences seem to have been chosen at random and no attempt to use the process creatively was made.

Worst of all, they used the poor anaglyph red/blue 3-D system, which does not work here at all. Even with the glasses on, I couldn't see a hint of depth.

Easily the worst attempt at 3-D in the last 30 years.
