Rotten: ...the segment with the dolls has its moments. Give the movie an extra point for that.

Fresh: a cat-and-mouse game, without any of the strap-to-a-chair-and-torture shock attempts

Rotten: Amusement might end up being the most ironic title of the year, because there's absolutely nothing amusing about it.

Painful horror yarn, Amusement is a misfire in the genre. I felt that the film was stupid and poorly constructed. Amusement fails to thrill and becomes a pointless film that tries too hard at delivering chills, which ultimately doesn't work. The cast here is simply terrible, and every actor is forgettable in their parts. This film is horrible, and for me anyways was one of the worst horror flicks that I had the misfortune to see in recent memory. Director John Simpson clearly has no clue how to develop a good script, and its limitations show on-screen. This film might have worked, but its script is poorly written, and there was no real effort put into this film. This film was horrible, a total waste of time. If you're looking for an effective horror film, this film isn't it. This film doesn't stand out, and ends up being a painful viewing for the viewer. Amusement, unlike its title would suggest isn't amusing. This film is boring and poorly constructed. I hated the film, felt it could have been much better than this, and this was a missed opportunity to create something good. This film doesn't deliver good chills. If only the filmmakers would have given this film more attention, a chance for the film to be better than this. Amusement is an awful film, one that misses the mark, and there's really nothing here to really enjoy or to thrill the viewer. You're time would better spent watching a better horror film. This is a poorly constructed film that really doesn't cut it.

Teen Horror with nothing new to offer. Tensity levels are at a low, gore factor, non existent - a complete waste of time.

The first half of the film was really promising and quite creepy, especially vignette number two. The acting is pretty solid and the film is nicely put together in a VISUAL sense, story wise...not so much. It becomes clear about 3/4 of the way in that what started out as an interesting premise has slowly begun to unravel and by the end just feels rather cheap and desperate (and not in a good way).
