Allison is a young woman with a troubling past. In an attempt to find closure for her past traumatic experiences, she enters a haunted attraction called Perdition, which is an attraction with no rules or boundaries. Perdition will go as far as torturing someone in order to make their guests reach their limits. Allison meets another person, Zachary, who is also attending the haunt and together, they must try to make it through the attraction. But, when the attraction owners go too far, the effect it has on Allison isn’t what was intended.
The Gore Factor
Most of the film is centered around extreme “torture” scenarios within the haunted attraction. However, towards the end of the film, blood and gore scenes start to become more central as things get out of hand. For example, one of the more notable scenes involves a mans face being torn off. Other scenes are less significant but still incorporate some blood splatter.
The Grave Review
Extremity (2018) is one of many films that focus on the concept of haunted attractions taking situations too far. The plot centers around Allison, who believes that she will find closure in an extreme situation if she attends this attraction. But, what ultimately happens is that Allison’s condition is only exacerbated by these scenarios.
The first half of the story line focused on the various torture scenes that Allison was subject to. For this portion of the film, the story often felt sluggish. As the employees from the attraction act in each scene, Allison is seen screaming or at the minimum, attempts to scream. However, these scenarios did not feel convincing or engaging. As a whole, the story line was predictable and tiring. Bottom line, Extremity is not extreme at all.
Overall, Extremity (2018) is not recommended if you are someone who enjoys films centering around haunted attractions. Better options are The Funhouse Massacre, The Houses October Built, and The Funhouse to name a few films.
For the foregoing reasons, Grave Reviews gives Extremity (2018), one grave out of five graves.
