Lustig and Cohen were the Director/Writer team that brought you Maniac Cop and this film seems to be a rehash of those…

Spookshow Sideshows – The Funhouse (1981)

By Karen Kohoutek | February 15, 2022

While not completely forgotten, The Funhouse has never quite gotten the attention of Tobe Hooper films like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre or Poltergeist, often getting lumped in with serviceable ‘80s horrors of the Prom Night variety.

About The Haunted Cinema

The Haunted Cinema started out as a hobby website to display vintage cinema posters, but has grown into a review and interview hub for enthusiasts of the Horror/Sci-fi movie genres. Our content is in the same vein as old-school horror host greats such as Elvira & The Ghoul.

Ghastly

Our Undead, rather, Head Usher. He keeps things running smoothly (mostly) in the cinema and makes sure that our guests are creepy and comfy.

Grimmly

Part Mad Scientist, part Mad Projectionist. He is responsible for the scares on the screen. He puts the “Haunted” in The Haunted Cinema.

Nosp

Nosferella

From dusk till dawn (she’s allergic to sunlight), she handles all of our patron’s snack needs at our candy counter. She’s always looking for someone to stop by for a “bite”.

The Gallery

The Haunted Cinema is more than just movies. We also have a wonderful and spooky collection of posters, sculptures, masks, and more. We are passionate about the genre in all its forms and want to share that love with you. Check back often as there is always something new to see.
