Thoughts on Central Park
Thoughts – Central Park is a horror that will see a masked killer tracking down a group of teens in Central Park as they look to escape the rampage. Now as a basic slasher, this is fun with the kills, which works, but when we look deeper into the actions, it does end up feeling too random, after giving us the deeper look at the teenagers lives, with the troubles because of their parents. It could have looked at giving us more suspects as to why the teenagers would have become targeted, instead of just random killings and while the location in Central Park does feel different, it does seem like nobody knows their way around their own local park. If you can overlook the plot which could be a lot deeper, this is an entertaining enough slasher for the fans of the genre to enjoy.
Final Thoughts – Central Park Basic, tame slasher.
