Buckle up and keep your hands and feet inside the car at all costs, for you are about to go on a terror ride called The Park. From acclaimed Hong Kong director Andrew Lau (Infernal Affairs) comes the world premiere of a film filled with fright, fun, and…3-D!

An amusement park is forced to shut down after a machinery malfunction causes a little girl's death. Fourteen years later, rumors circulate that the deserted park is inhabited by ghosts. When a boy goes missing, his brother and six friends sneak into the park to search for him. Soon enough, they realize they are in for much more than they bargained for.

Never taking itself too seriously, The Park is an exhilarating throwback to horror films of old, where logic and character development are crowded out by campy fun, shocking camera magic, and spooky characters. The incredible 3-D effects bring the terror right into your lap, so step right up and see for yourself the midnight madness of The Park…if you dare.
