Circus of Horrors (15) Film Screening – Introduced by Martin Carter
Sun, 21 October 4:30pm
Of all the 1960s British horror movies that used a circus background, this is by far the most louche and lurid. Anton Diffring plays a homicidal plastic surgeon masquerading as the owner of a travelling circus who transforms facially disfigured women into the stars of his show. Billy Smart’s Circus provides a suitably authentic circus backdrop to the crazed murder spree that ensues.
In collaboration with the Department of Humanities, Sheffield Hallam University.
