The Funhouse : Do you think Joey got punished?

Do you think Joey got punished?

The mom seemed pretty strict do you think she punished Joey for sneaking off to the funhouse?

Re: Do you think Joey got punished?

The film sort of implies that Joey might have been molested by the REALLY creepy carny who caresses him as he sleeps. And when the mom sees Joey sleeping, and sees the Carny caressing him, she gets this really dark, knowing look in her eyes and seems to understand what has happened. The father seems a little more oblivious. It's a truly chilling scene. I feel like the mother at that point would feel more grateful just to have found her son alive under the circumstances.

I hope so, especially because of Joey's stalking activity.

He could've. If he told exactly what happened to him I think they'd feel so terrible about it that they'd have mercy. If he stayed silent I imagine they would've punished him until he told them exactly what happened.

Joey's punishment was rape and sodomy by the old dude :/

Re: Do you think Joey got punished?

The carny was portrayed as creepy, and his manner could imply anything, but what you express is not stated as absolute. He did call Joey's parents. All he said was he had a lot to go through to get their details as Joey was in a state of shock.

He may have had his own son/sons and there is also a paternal nature in many men towards male children. Not everything has to be sexualized.
