    • Excerpt: While not every aspect of Romero’s amusement park allegory for society works as well as others, the 52 minute film succeeds in its mission with flying colors.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: The Amusement Park offers Romero fans a cool curiosity that is worth seeking out, but there might be enough here for everyone else.
  • Lee Jutton @ Film Inquiry
    • Excerpt: The good folks over at Shudder are giving audiences everywhere a chance to finally watch The Amusement Park, Romero’s haunting depiction of the horrors and humiliations that befall the elderly when society deems them excess to requirements. And while The Amusement Park might not feature as much graphic violence and gore as some of Romero’s other movies, that doesn’t make it any less terrifying.
  • Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
    • Excerpt: When you think you’re going to get a straightforward educational video but you hire George Romero for the project and wind up instead with a hellish nightmare. That’s exactly how The Amusement Park came into existence.
  • [New] | Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: One can easily see all of Romero’s style on display, which includes his ability to make the best of limited means and his ways of making the familiar feel surreal.
  • Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies
    • Excerpt: The mismatch between message and messenger is precisely what makes ‘The Amusement Park’ fresh and fascinating. Making its point efficiently in under an hour, anyone with an interest in George Romero, experimental horror, or obscure cinematic oddities will want to put this ambitious little curiosity on their bucket list.
