Review: Movie World's Fright Night
Kristina Chapman | On 03, Oct 2014
It all began with a crowd mingling just inside the gates of Movie World, dodging creepy supernatural beings sliding along the ground, frightening people with their sudden appearance and noise.
A rather strange looking man dressed in grey scale, chains draped around his neck and arms, and a voice so low and sinister it wasÂ bound to give you the creeps, finally greeted the guests.
The walk to Movie Worldâ€™s famous Fright Night mazes were an event itself, with smoke hindering your view as zombies reached out to feast on you.
Blood sprayed the walkway and walls, suggesting a battle long since lost had once occurred on the pathway.
Finally arriving at the Village Studios where the mazes were being held, guests were treated to a Halloween feast.
Blood bags were handed out for a tasty drink alongside jelly shots inside syringes, clearly not made for pricking skin.
A wonderful array of sliced meats were draped atop skeletons lying on top of the catering tables. A bowl of salad was placed in the stomach of another mannequin.
Two mazes were open for the guests; The Evil Within, inspired by the upcoming video game of the same title, and Wolf Creek 2, inspired by the 2013 movie.
Wolf Creek star John Jarratt spoke to the crowd, admitting his amazement at how accurate his movieâ€™s maze turned out. It was like being on the film set all over again.
This particular maze offered jump scares, with dying people reaching for hope as the guests walked through the darkness, witnessing the horrify scene before them.
Meanwhile, The Evil WithinÂ offered a rather ominous tone throughout; each time you round a corner, you wondered if you were going to be spooked.
