Circus of the Dead (2014) (BLU-RAY REVIEW)
Director: Billy ‘Bloody Bill’ Pon
Starring: Bill Oberst Jr., Chanel Ryan, Parrish Randall

A man becomes entangled in a deadly morality game when the circus comes to town and a sadistic clown forces him to examine the things in life he takes for granted in the most horrific ways.

A few years ago I was lucky enough to see an indie horror flick called Circus of the Dead and I was really impressed with what I saw. A group of sick people lead by leading clown Papa Corn (Played at an award-winning level by Bill Oberst Jr.) torture a fan to the core and force him to do things he really doesn’t want to do all the while just raising all sorts of hell. This was not only a clever movie in a number of ways but it’s what I called indie horror done right. Now I’m happy to report that if you didn’t see it before you have a better chance to now as it joins the ranks of the Dread series from Epic Pictures and will now be coming to us on a wider release on Blu-ray. If you haven’t seen this instant classic from director Billy Pon, now is the perfect time to finally do so. There’s a little bit of a lot of things in this movie one being the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, but it all comes together to make something that pushes the sense and makes its own unique horror clown show.

Our leading male has his daughters kidnapped to get things kickstarted and what follows really pulls you into the story and holds you there until the very end. This is a movie that will impress you with how well its made and how well the acting is but it’s also made with the type of sinister touch that will kick you in the gut at the drop of a hat. It’s a violent movie and things happen at times that some people might have a hard time sitting through but that’s what makes this one what it becomes at the end of the day. This really is a cool release for a movie that was among my best of the year when I saw it. We even get Pon’s infamous short Dollboy here in the extras for good measure. When you compile a list of the best indie horror films of the last decade, you have to put Circus of the Dead on it.
