The Amusement Park

The Amusement Park ★★★★

George Romero’s lost movie. What is said is that it was saved from 2 damaged 16mm films. The restoration was quite nice. George Romero’s widow stated that she believes that it was shelved because the organization that hired him to make a movie about elder abuse was just to edgy for their tastes. Which seems kinda funny because they must have not realized who they hired. lol It is like a PSA on how elderly are discarded by society, take advantage of and physically abused reflected in the setting of a theme park and can be quite bleak. You have to see it to appreciate it for uniqueness. It is currently available on Shudder check it out!
