About the Movie
Twenty years ago, Alex Grant witnessed the brutal murder of her mother. Ever since, she has been haunted by hallucinations and nightmares of the horrible crime and the killer. Now, her vividly surreal visions become terrifyingly and convincingly real as Louis Seagram is back and out for revenge. Dressed as the carnival clown Alex once knew him to be, Louis slowly torments her by playing a diabolical game. It's a game of life or death - a game Louis intends to win.
Miller is shockingly effective
Low key stand up comedian and comedic actor Larry Miller is cast against type here to truly effective results. The movie is a bit of a mess but gets points for trying something far more ambitious than a typical slasher flicks. Some other reviewers here took issue with the movie for not being like "I Know What You Did Last Summer" and you should actually take that as a huge compliment because this movie did not follow the same cookie cutter assembly like so many Scream clones. It's disturbing and both pays homage to the original Carnival Of Souls and attempts it's own strange twists as well. It's worth a look for Miller's turn as carnival clown that is also a very sick and abusive man.
While not the greatest movie ever produced, it still is a classic of B cinema. But take note that it is in the Public Domain.
