The Amusement Park

Where to watch

"See you in the park, someday"

An elderly gentleman sets out for what he thinks will be a normal day at an amusement park and is soon embroiled in a waking nightmare. [Produced in 1973, The Amusement Park was shelved after the Lutheran Society, which had commissioned it as an educational film about elder abuse and ageism, refused to release it due to its disturbing content. It premiered at the American Film Festival in New York in June 1975 and was a finalist in the competition, but went otherwise unreleased. It was believed lost until a print was discovered in 2017, shortly before Romero's death. It was subsequently given a 4K restoration by IndieCollect, which premiered in 2019.]
