Carnage Park had some interesting things going for it with an almost Western Film Noir aspect intermixed with the apocalyptic-like setting and the performances from Ashley Bell and Pat Healy but otherwise it’s a rather ordinary and forgettable flick.

PLOT SYNOPSIS


It’s 1978 and a bank robbery gone wrong forces two criminals to take a hostage – the young-but-resilient Vivian (ASHLEY BELL) – as they go on the run. But things go from bad to off-the-rails berserk when Vivian and her captors wind up in the crosshairs of a deranged ex-military sniper (PAT HEALY), who ensnares them in his deadly game of cat and mouse.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0.5/5


This release comes with a matted slip cover. Only feature included is the Trailer (1:46; HD).

 


VIDEO – 3.0/5


Being set, mostly, in the desert, Carnage Park lacks any color geared more toward natural tones, on the brown spectrum. But detail does look fairly sharp and well defined and it was generally a clean 1080p high-definition transfer though I did notice some banding in transitions scenes.

AUDIO – 3.5/5


The disc includes both a 5.1 and 2.0 DTS-HD Master Audio track, the former default. It’s not exactly an all-encompassing lossless track but does at least offer clear dialogue levels and when the action does pick up, in a few spots, there is some depth with ambient noises and the score coming from the front and rear channels.

 


OVERALL – 2.5/5


Overall, Carnage Park had some interesting things going for it with an almost Western Film Noir aspect intermixed with the apocalyptic-like setting and the performances from Ashley Bell and Pat Healy but otherwise it’s a rather ordinary and forgettable flick. The Blu-ray release offers so-so video and audio and only a trailer.
