Synopsis

"... The Funhouse really excels as Hooper takes excellent advantage of the setting ... plus it's got a terrific twist with its killer that makes it one worth seeking out." – Charles Webb, MTV

Director Tobe Hooper (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Lifeforce) pays affectionate tribute to various classic horror movies in this tale of two teenage couples who spend the night in a sleazy carnival funhouse.

On her first date with Buzz (Cooper Huckabee, True Blood), Amy (Elizabeth Berridge, Amadeus) disobeys her father and goes to the carnival with Richie (Miles Chapin, Hair) and Liz (Largo Woodruff, The Ladies Club) ... but their first date may end up as their last. After witnessing a murder, the four terrified teens are trapped in the maze of the Funhouse and stalked by a real monster: a horribly deformed killer who lurks among the freakish exhibits to butcher them one by one! Also starring Sylvia Miles (Midnight Cowboy) and Kevin Conway (Invincible) in three roles, The Funhouse features special makeup designs by the ingenious Rick Baker (An American Werewolf In London, Ed Wood).

Why We Love It

“Shout! Factory's new UHD looks terrific. The studio has upped the ante to incentivize purchase with new extras and a remastered Blu-ray. Recommended.” – Martin Liebman, Blu-ray.com

“This 4K Shout! transfer of course offers a significant A/V upgrade on their prior 2012 Blu-ray disc, reminding audiences of the magnitude of The Funhouse’s beauty. The colors are feverishly lurid and far better differentiated than those of the previous transfer… The transfer’s soundtrack options represent an even more impressive improvement. There are two tracks, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and a 2.0, respectively, and both positively sing, offering soundstages that nimbly balance the vast carnival sounds with the dialogue.” – Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine

“The horror favorite terrorizes the 4K Ultra HD carnival ride with a freakishly excellent Dolby Vision HDR presentation that offers a fantastic upgrade over its Blu-ray predecessor, joined by two equally excellent and enjoyable DTS-HD MA audio options from which to choose. While porting over the same bonuses as before, Scream Factory has culled together four more new supplements that are exclusive to this package, making this UHD collector's edition a recommended and must-own addition to the 4K horror library.” – M. Enois Duarte, High-Def Digest

“Featuring a new 4K scan from the film’s original camera negative, this release is easily the best The Funhouse has ever looked, even topping Scream Factory’s already impressive 2012 Blu-ray release. Razor sharp image (save for some scenes which feature some softer photography, of course), with cinematographer Andrew Laszlo’s eye popping color work faithfully represented throughout. The scan also boasts some noticeable film grain, giving the feature a beautiful, grainy film look that thankfully hasn’t been DNR-scrubbed away. The early carnival scenes in particular are marvelous, looking gritty and gorgeous in equal measure.” – Jason Jenkins, Bloody Disgusting

“Scream Factory has provided the film with a 4K UHD Blu-Ray release that boasts a fantastic A/V presentation and a deep reservoir of special features that fans will eat up. Even if you already own this one on Blu-Ray, this new presentation brings a whole new life to this film. Highly Recommended” – Dillon Gonzales, Geek Vibes Nation

“The Funhouse holds up well, an entertaining horror picture with a great setting, a cool monster and some strong performances. The UHD release from Shout! Factory offers a really nice upgrade in picture quality and a solid assortment of extra features old and new. Recommended!” – Ian Jane, Rock Shock Pop
