Movie Info

Death stalks Coney Island, as an anonymous killer is targeting women on the boardwalk and tearing them to shreds without leaving any obvious clues. Assistant D.A. Dan (Martin Barolsky) decides to investigate, and drags his fiancee Laura (Judith Resnick) along with him despite her fears. They visit Laura's friend and neighbor Tom (Earle Edgerton) who runs a dart game booth at the carnival with his hunchbacked sidekick Gimpy (Burt Young, appearing here under the name John Harris), then question a gypsy fortune teller who has predicted the deaths of each victim while reading their tarot cards. The murders continue, each victim visiting both Tom's booth and the gypsy before their death, and all found later missing vital organs. When Dan discovers a teddy bear stuffed with human offal in the prime suspect's apartment, he must race against time to save Laura from meeting the same terrible fate as the killer's previous victims.

Audience Reviews for Carnival of Blood

Carnival of Blood is an anomaly. It is really bad but is a good example of drive-in B movie cheese. Burt Young plays a dim witted hunchback that helps run a balloon popping stand. A maniac kills people and that is really it. I'm a fan of carnivals and there are some cool shots of inside the fun house and the area of the carnival itself. It looks like the production didn't let a lot of attendees of Coney Island know that they were making a movie because a lot of people look into the camera. The obnoxious old lady with the camera was strange. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone but would bring it over to watch with friends.

It's a bad flick, but it's got spunk, and watching it late at night the cheap way and extremely odd way it was done really fucking gave me the creeps. One of the first films in a while that got under my skin so much that I had to watch of a bit of Conan before bed. How lame do I feel.
