Starring: Bill Moseley, Kane Hodder Synopsis:
Tabbott’s Traveling Carnivale of Terrors has been taking its unique sights and frights to towns around the Appalachian country and surrounding regions since 1925. Business is booming; Offering games, seasonal food, bonfires, festive costumes, fortune telling, sideshows, stage acts, and old-world music, the carnival is fun for the whole family! Taking over for his parents who founded the business; Colonel Everette Tabbott III and his wife Gladys Tabbott have been married for 25 years and have four children. The Tabbott family members work together to keep their well-oiled machine-of-deception running according to plan. Papa; the ringleader ringmaster. Mama; the fat witch upon a throne. Their children: Bobbie; a seductively cunning fortune teller. Buck; the temperamental werewolf. Elijah; the silent scarecrow. And young Emma; the ghost ignored.
The Carnival’s main attraction is a House of Horrors like never seen before; a slaughterhouse for those who visit, and leave nevermore. It is autumn, the Family’s favorite time of year; costumes and creeping, and all sorts of things to fear. The moon is full, the carnival erected; for unsuspecting visitors, the night is not what they suspected. Twist of events at every turn, the guests keep lining up; you’d think that sheep would learn. A local country girl Jess follows the Tabbott’s hand painted wooden sign in town advertising the carnival, and takes the bait and her beautiful friend Sarah from town. It‘s a full moon and the girls are ready for an exciting night of fun and frights. As fate would have it; things are not always what they seem, and predator and prey can be difficult to distinguish. Twisting into a night unlike any other; Jess and Sarah find themselves helplessly entangled in a fatal attraction.
This tragic autumn-time tale of the Tabbott family is fraught with murder, cannibalism, abduction, sexual perversion, divination, betrayal, and reckoning. And it may as well be their last. A macabre and psychologically spine chilling story. A disturbingly warm hearted and cold blooded tale of terror.
