Malatesta's Carnival of Blood
Directed by Christopher Speeth
A family infiltrates a sinister carnival where their son disappeared in this ‘70s horror oddity featuring cult icon Herve Villechaize. Though eating your customers might seem like a bad business move, somehow the mysterious Malatesta and the vampiric Mr. Blood run a thriving operation. But when the Norris family comes looking for their missing son, daughter Vena is quickly pulled into a nightmarish world where murder and cannibalism are the main attractions. Fans of CARNIVAL OF SOULS and other surreal low-budget ‘60s and ‘70s regional horror shouldn’t miss it. Contains violence and gore.
A family infiltrates a sinister carnival where their son mysteriously disappeared.

I appreciate these older horror movies but this one was plain stupid. Nobody can run 2 feet without falling down or 10 feet before running out of breath. Don’t bother with this movie unless your into stupid movies. 1 skull only for the cute midget from fantasy island.
A good Movie!!!
i just could not get into this movie! if u don’t read the plot before going in you’ve no chance lol i was like “huh”myself and i read it 😅i’ve seen much better much older films. i doubt i’ll watch the others with the same art work for covers. i tried first on (may go back) i turned that off to try watch this and that’ one seemed better. i guess if u like messy movies it’s up your street, turned off at 40min as i gave it plenty of time. i still rewarded 2 skulls because it’s not the worse i’ve ever started watching.
This is a brilliantly weird and surreal film! On its own merits, it's probably only a 3 star film -- and that might even be slightly generous, but it really delivers in the creepy dream-like state of the film. I'm sure most of the people who worked on this film probably never did anything related to film before. Other than Tattoo, all of the actors just look like people who could be your neighbors in the 1970s. There are some slow parts and some of it just feel slightly disjointed in spots, but for a film that probably could barely even pay the cast, this is truly a triumph. This is a great hidden gem if you like weird low-budget films from yesteryear.
