Kristy and James are soon joined by a sinister looking clown known as 'The Carny'. It is he who starts to play mind games with the duo by all means at his disposal. The Carny is a right seedy old dude and is played with a gleeful menace by Joe Unger. You never quite know what he will do next and with his various tricks and disguises you tend to feel a genuine unease when he is on the screen. Kristy and James have to get out of the carnival but can they make it out alive?
Director Jay Woelfel (who also wrote the film and directed the under-rated final chapter in the 'Trancers' film series) has crafted a film which confuses the hell out of you and when you think you got it worked out, it confuses you further. Whether this was done either in the script or the editing suite, it makes a nice refreshing change from the usual by-the-number horror movies.
The film has good old fashioned make up effects and a bit of dodgy CGI at the beginning but don't let that put you off. I also liked Woelefel's use of digital work on some scenes with some well wild colours being used and some clever filtering of the camera's image. Using an old deserted funfair for the location shooting has helped immensely and gives the film a real creepy atmosphere.
It's certainly quite an strange experience at times and one which I did rather enjoy. It is a real head trip at times but at least it's different, which I'm all for in this age of lame slasher and zombie pictures.
This film has no ads or any annoying production intros it dives straight into the film - This is the ONLY good thing about Carnival of Fear. It starts rather abruptly with a boy running from an older gentlemen in the woods. The boy seeks refuge in a hut where an old man eating beans appears to already be hiding in. Within seconds the young boy is on a rollercoaster with the man who was chasing him. What happened next was insulting as a paying customer watching this film. Essentially a sequence showing the boy on a rollercoaster obviously taken out of a Nintendo game is played. The film then gets worse and worse to the stage where there is no storyline whatsoever. There is no proper editing or anything that remotely indicates this "film" was made by anyone other than a demented chimp with a camcorder on it's forehead.
The film lasts a marathon 2 hours, and it's exactly that a marathon painful, slow and no matter how much you want it to end more just keeps on coming. I must admit I stopped taking anything in after the main character was watching herself getting raped by a teddy bear.
I read somewhere that Carnival of Fear was a remake of an older film, if that is true then that director must be spinning in his grave.
