It wasn't THAT bad...
8 July 2004 | by jeanie_821See all my reviews

I wound up watching this film after one of the most horrible days at the office I'd ever had, reasoning that nothing could scare me after that. Guess what - it did. And I'm not an easy scare.

A cynical teenage boy takes a girl he's just met into a carny sideshow, much like the ones I and many others visited at traveling carnivals when we were kids. (Remember Lobster Boy? The Half-Girl? The Bearded Woman?) However, the exhibits in this sideshow are more horrifying than the ones we saw as children, and the stories behind them are chilling. Of course, we wonder what it will take to impress the cynic... and whether we were right in convincing ourselves that the sideshow exhibits were fake.
