So watch your step
30 December 2001 | by DomitianSee all my reviews

Eh, circus. Everyone's seen a circus. This ripe little slice of hell deals with...well...just a bunch of scenes from some circus (the really old, creepy kind, mind you). Nothing memorable about it, it's just filler space. It strikes me funny though, a movie about the circus like this, I mean, isn't the "joy" of the circus the fact that you're actually there, watching everything for yourself? When you put it on film, you miss the nuances. You don't have that cotton candy mixed with beer and vomit smell joining up with the smell of elephant and horse manure to form a two-pronged odor attack. You don't hear children shrieking, or mothers slapping them for not ceasing their annoying complaints. There are no screaming happy clowns barging into your face, demanding attention and admiration. Actually...now that I think about it in my own way....this short isn't so bad. It's available on an episode of MST3K, but I can't remember which one offhand. Just when you watch it, try to hear that "doo doo doodoodoo-do do doo dooo!' circus music played on a Hammond organ song you hear in so many horror movies.
