* out of 4.
12 September 2001 | by brandonsites1981See all my reviews

A group of teenagers mess with the ringleader of a freak sideshow and of course the ringleader takes it upon himself to teach the teenagers a nasty lesson.

Brinke Stevens is totally wasted in a cameo performance, the ending is terrible, and the special effects are pretty sorry, even by Fred Olen Ray's standards. Rent Jack-O or Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers instead.

Rated R for Nudity, Language, Graphic Violence, and a Mild Sexual Situation.
