Though shot in color, the film was released in Germany only in black-and-white. The main reason was the close relationship of Rialto Film, the Production Company of the German Edgar Wallace Series, and Constantin Film, this film's German distributor and co-producer. Rialto Film wanted to promote a production of their own as the "first Edgar Wallace Film in Color". This film was to be The Hunchback of Soho (1966), released in Germany only a couple of months after "Circus of Fear". The original colour version of the film was released in Germany for the first time ever on DVD in 2006, though in edited form. See more »

This movie has more title changes than evilskip's shorts. Psycho Circus, Circus Of Fear etc.It isn't a horror movie but it is a crime movie and I might add it is a crime what has been done to this movie.It may or not be based somewhat loosely on an Edgar Wallace thriller.
A robbery goes awry leading to murder,double crossings, mistaken identities, blackmail and revenge.You've got a great cast, an involving plot and...video distributors that butchered the film.There is at least one reel missing from this print that has some important exposition.Not to mention 15 minutes as well.This print only runs 74 minutes.
I would love to see the complete film.In the meantime this one will have to do.
