Hell Fest (2018 Movie) Official Trailer.
At Hell Fest, a travelling horror theme park, a masked man known as "The Other" kills a young woman when she is separated from her friends in a maze. The Other (Stephen Conroy) hangs her corpse in the maze so it blends in with the props.
On Halloween night, Natalie (Amy Forsyth) goes to Hell Fest with her best friend Brooke (Reign Edwards), Brooke's roommate Taylor (Bex Taylor-Klaus), their boyfriends Quinn (Christian James) and Asher (Matt Mercurio), and their friend Gavin (Roby Attal), who is interested in Natalie. The girls run into a terrified woman in one of the park's mazes trying to hide from the Other. Natalie, thinking this is part of the park experience, points out her hiding place. The Other kills the woman in front of Natalie after Taylor and Brooke leave. Natalie thinks the murder seemed too real to be a normal attraction, and once she reunites with the rest of her group notices the Other is stalking them. The group dismisses Natalie's fears until Brooke catches the Other stealing Natalie and Gavin's pictures from a photo booth.
While the rest of the group enters another area of the park, Gavin tries to steal a prize for Natalie when he fails to win one in a carnival game. The Other corners Gavin, and crushes his skull with a mallet. Because Gavin is still gone, Natalie goes on a ride alone while the rest of her friends pair up. The ride breaks down, and Natalie is approached by a man who appears to be the Other. This is part of the ride, however, and the group discovers park employees wear a mask similar to the Other's.
A park employee grabs Taylor and takes her away. The rest of the group splits up to find her, with the girls going in one maze while the boys go into another. The Other corners Natalie in a maze, but she escapes. Asher gets separated from Quinn, and is killed when the Other stabs him in the eye. The friends regroup, but they do not have much time to think about Asher's disappearance before an employee sprays Natalie with ooze. She goes into a bathroom to clean up, where the Other uses Gavin's phone to trap her in a stall. Natalie escapes and tries to warn park security about the Other, but a security guard dismisses the attack as part of the park experience.
