Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

After their successful teaming in the Gothic monstrosity What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, both Bette Davis and Joan Crawford found twilight career success in a run of horror films of varying standards. They were invariably made in Britain, which at that time (the late 1960s) played host to a number of cheap and nasty shockers of no real distinction. Here Crawford stars in a tale about murderous goings-on in a circus that is at least marginally better than her caveman fiasco Trog. She's backed up by some interesting faces, ranging from Ty Hardin to the ever-welcome Diana Dors, but, sadly, it just isn't any good. It's a shame to watch an actress of Crawford's stature gawking at such explicit sadism, though for many that is this tawdry flick's main appeal.
