CARNIVAL MAGIC

Al Adamson, USA, 1981, Vinegar Syndrome, Cult

"Reignited my passion for cinema, carnivals, magic, monkeys, and vivisection." — Joe, LETTERBOXD

For his penultimate film, exploitation legend Al Adamson (SATAN’S SADISTS, DRACULA VS. FRANKESTEIN) made the strangest move of his career with this surreal foray into “family entertainment.” CARNIVAL MAGIC is a delightful tale of alcoholism, domestic violence, a talking chimp with a brassiere fetish, vivisection, suicide, and not a single role for children. Don Stewart (THE GUIDING LIGHT) and Joe Cirillo (GHOSTBUSTERS) co-star in the infamous 1980s carnival-set oddity that Joe Franklin once called, “the finest family film since E.T.” New restoration from the only surviving 35mm elements!
