The Last Circus

The Last Circus

Directed by Alex de la Iglesia

In 1970s Spain, a twisted love triangle turns into a brutal battle between happy clown Sergio, who rules his circus with a bloody fist, and sad clown Javier, whose life has been filled with suffering. Both clowns love Natalia, an aerialist who has endured abuse as Sergio’s girlfriend. As the rivalry to win her heart grows increasingly more violent, pies in the face get replaced with acid and even worse. Spanish cult icon Alex de la Iglesia had his biggest crossover success with this gruesome must-see black comedy. Fans of SANTA SANGRE and director Sion Sono should appreciate the over-the-top finale.

Every 20 minutes feels like a different movie. A strange mix of everything: Drama, Horror, comedy, romance... One of the most unique films I've seen. Definitely worth a watch if you're a fan of the absurd

To me this was more drama than horror. However, the main character’s transformation into his final appearance is one of the most emotionally horrific pieces of cinema I’ve ever seen However, this film was amazing! Give it a watch!
