Directed by George A. Romero, the master of horror, The Amusement Park was intended to be an educational film about elder abuse and ageism, but became a psychological horror nightmare.
Available now in the 101 Films x AGFA (American Genre Film Archive) collection: a wild shot-on-video horror anthology from Baltimore, a double bill of ’70s adult movies with the stories brought to the fore, an ultra-violent slasher from Toronto that tackles the toxicity of early 90s society, and a violent and histrionic psychodrama that represents an overlooked early entry in the canon of queer cinema.
“A public access version of Creepshow from the wilds of Baltimore.”

When we tend to talk about women in horror, it’s very easy to conjure up the age-old trope and imagery of the female slasher victim, because of their promiscuity and body positivity. Female antagonists however have been more than just the gory, tantalising titillation aimed at bringing hordes of men to the cinema.
“It has nothing to do with Satan, Mama. It’s me.”
