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.

This movie is all about the experience - the extent of the plot is pretty much what it says in the description, and don't expect breakthrough cinematographic moments or good acting. The people who made it clearly cared a lot and believed in the product. Whether the vibe is there is obviously very subjective. I think the movie is beautiful - the best way to describe it is that it is like a child's dream (with a dark twist, of course). If it sounds interesting, please consider watching, maybe you will like it too.
This was a very fun low budget movie. Lon Chaney Sr. would have been proud of Malatesta.
What unbornchick_n' & jodzilla98 said. And, Herve Villechaize is a national treasure...RIP.
