When a carnival passes through town, diner waitress Jade Cochran quits and joins the circus. She marries the show’s owner, but her affair with a carnie results in a deadly face-off, and her disdain for the sideshow freaks leads to a shocking end.

Pretty lame quasi-remake of Tod Browning's classic 'Freaks'. Half the movie seems to consist of stock footage of carnival rides being set up as bland 60s pop drones on the soundtrack. The plot is just a loose series of ineptly performed scenes completely devoid of drama or tension. Relentlessly dull, even hardcore cult movie fans will have a hard time with this one.
Starts out seeming like it'll be fun camp, but it gets way too draggy with pointless scenes of the carnival and just about zero action. Claire Brennen is good, although her character seems to go over-the-top mean for no reason.
