The circus is coming to town and you best trade in your cotton candy for a bushel of garlic as everyone in it is a vampire. VAMPIRE CIRCUS is a wild Hammer Horror film made when the studio was adding heavy doses of sex and nudity to their already gory formula. Cushing and Lee are nowhere to be found, but the cast does a fine job even if most of them look like they should be performing in a rock opera. Opening scenes offer a gut punch, we are treated to heavy gore, nudity, sex and a shocking child murder all before the opening credits! One of the best to come out of Hammer's later years.
