Vampire Circus + Circus of Horrors Mixtape (Off-site at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater)

Pre-reception and drinks at 7pm
Show at 8pm

Preceded by a puppet show, circus performers, and a Cinefamily original Circus of Horrors mixtape!

A slice-of-sleaze from the untapped late-period of Hammer, Vampire Circus—although light on character development and logical plotting—is an erotic, atmospheric dive into early 70s vampiric obscurity. In a19th century European village, the Circus of Nights has rolled into town to assist—unbeknownst to the townspeople—local Count Mitterhaus execute his years-gestating plan of revenge. Toss in a plague for good measure, a couple missing children, a circus freak or two, and some of the greatest over-long fang close-ups around and settle in for an overlooked gem from across the pond.

Dir. Robert Young, 1972, Digital Presentation, 87 min.
