A series of grisly murders plague a circus.
Surprisngly competent and enjoyable film, especially coming from Herman Cohen. Crawford knows she is at the nadir of her career arc, but gives it all the gusto. Hardin is a bit less successful, but the rest of the cast is fine. Especially notable is George Claydon--a shame he wasn't in better roles. Plus, any movie that features a catfight between Diana Dors and Marianne Stone deserves an extra half-star. That all being said, the film is heavily padded with circus act footage such as "Phyllis Allen and her Intelligent Poodles," which is fine if you are a connoisseur of such things, but tends to distract from the plot a bit. The ending is a bit pat, too, but at least the killer is a bit of a surprise and their motivations understandable.
