“No sawdust can soak up the torrent of blood!” cautioned the film poster. Vampire and child-abductor Robert Tayman is caught and killed by townspeople; 15 years later, the village is in quarantine due to an outbreak of the plague but the Circus of Night nevertheless arrives to entertain—and to feed. Domini Blythe is the resident-turned-ringmaster; fiery Adrienne Corri is the gypsy lure; David Prowse is the strongman; and future Phase IV star Lynne Frederick is the local girl coveted by the cabal.

Please note: the print we will be screening is faded.
