With all of the Comic-Con hoopla and the giant budget films like Transformers 3, The Green Lantern, Saw 3D and Piranha 3D’s, it’s really easy to miss these independent cult gems. Here’s an exclusive first look at the DVD artwork and release details for the upcoming film “Carnies” directed by Shockya’s own Brian Corder starring genre favorites Doug Jones (Hellboy 2, Pan’s Labyrinth), Reggie Bannister (Phantasm) and Lee Perkins.
SYNOPSIS: In 1936, during The Great Depression, a traveling sideshow sets up shop to mystify yet another dustbowl town with freaks and illusions. When a sinister force begins taking the carnies’ lives one-by-one, Detective Ellison (Reggie Bannister of “Phantasm”) is put on the case. Is it the cryptic carnival owner, Helen (Denise Gossett)? What about the strong man, Virgil (Chris Staviski)? Or how about Ratty, the snake handler (Doug Jones)?
Step Right up folks, step right up. The Show is about to begin.
