Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Sara Sidle (credit only)
Steven Watt (as Kevin R. McNally)
Joseph Merrick
Dr. Jennifer Grier
Silvia Grier
Seth Helm


An adult female corpse is found covered with many piercing wounds from both surgical needles and a barbecue skewer, as sadistically tortured, yet Lidocaine was administered in advance. The pattern soon leads to captain Steven Watt's freak show 'circus' act Rachel Grier 'Femmistopheles', who is indeed missing. She lost contact even with her mother, a zoo vet, whose tranquilizers were apparently used. Rachel also was part of a complex romantic figure involving the elephant man working as John Merrick and his twin, strong man Seth Helm. Watts is found hanging in his tent, perhaps not the same killer's work. Written by KGF Vissers
