The Funhouse Massacre is a horror movie released in 2015 with a runtime of 90 minutes directed by Andy Palmer. The film stars Jere Burns, Scottie Thompson, and Matt Angel. The movie takes place in a fictional town in the United States. The story follows six inmates who escape from a mental institution to hide in a local funhouse on the night of its grand reopening. The funhouse is themed around different serial killers, and the escaped inmates decide to take on the personas of these killers.

As the night goes on, the murderers begin killing unsuspecting visitors, who believe the killings are part of the attraction. It's up to a group of young people, who visited the funhouse for some fun, to fight for their lives and stop the escaped inmates before more people are killed.

The first half of the movie focuses on introducing the characters, both the inmates and their potential victims. Each of the escaped inmates has a unique personality and reason for wanting to escape. They are all very different from each other, which adds an interesting dynamic to the group.

The young people who become the potential victims are a mix of high school friends and college students. The group of friends is led by a girl named Corey (Lauren E. Banks), whose father is the person responsible for the funhouse. The rest of the group includes her boyfriend, a couple, and their stoner friend. The college students are led by a girl named Morgan (Thompson), who is a psychology major and is interested in the psyche of the escaped inmates.

Once the killings start happening, the movie becomes very tense and suspenseful. The killers do a good job of blending in with the other actors in the funhouse so that the visitors don't suspect anything is wrong until it's too late. The kills are gruesome without being overly graphic, which makes them more effective in creating a sense of fear.

The acting in the movie is pretty good across the board. Burns, in particular, does an excellent job of playing the ringleader of the escaped inmates. He is charismatic and menacing, and you can't help but root for his character in a weird way. The young actors do a decent job, but they are not given enough to do outside of running and screaming.

The set design for the funhouse is impressive. Each themed room feels like it was given a lot of thought and care in creating an authentic experience. The only downside is that you don't get to see much of the funhouse before the killings start, but the little that you do see is intriguing.

Overall, The Funhouse Massacre is a fun and suspenseful horror movie that horror fans should enjoy. The story and characters are interesting enough to keep you invested, and the kills are well done without being too gory. While the movie is not a game-changer in the horror genre, it's a well-made and entertaining movie that is worth watching.

The Funhouse Massacre is a 2015 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 30 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.2.
