Critic Reviews for Ring of Fear

The resulting film, with its wildly inconsistent acting styles and loopy dialogue , borders on camp classic.

This is the kind of pulp film where subtlety counted for squat.

Audience Reviews for Ring of Fear

good movie with Mickey Spillane playing himself in a story he wrote. Neat scenes of an actual circus performing.
