drifter named Ian (Brendan Hughes) goes
to a carnival freakshow with his
girlfriend Elizabeth (Michele Matheson)
as they are shocked by what goes on
However, Ian has a dark secret and is a
werewolf and the freakmaster R.B. Harker
(Bruce Payne) discovers this and seems to
control him so he is in a big cage and
does shows for him as he draws in big
However, R.B. has a dark secret of his
own as he transforms into a vampire and
overpowers Ian to do exactly what he
wants while he feeds on human blood.
Ian befriends with one of the freaks
there named Winston (Sean Gregory
Sullivan) and asks him help to set him
free and to try and use his werewolf
powers to put a stop to R.B.'s evil
Nice shots on people like Winston, Carl, Toones and Bellamey with a shot on R.B. Harker talking to them acting very
serious as well as him telling Winston about him being fabulous too.
We spot many good camera takes on both Ian and Elizabeth in a funhouse together with Ian acting a little nervous and Elizabeth really digging on what's happening too.
There's many nice close up shots on the
monstrous props ready to leap out along
with some smoke.
We spot a nice approach with R.B. introducing himself to the two and taking
them through the tour with whacky shots
on each of the supporting characters. There's a good
shocking shot on Bellamy biting a
head off a chicken with both Ian and Elizabeth staring in shock.
There's a good camera shot on both Ian and Elizabeth kissing one another
and making out with a big flash of light
while they do so.
Terrific shots on Ian
transforming into a werewolf.
We spot a perfect close up shot on R.B. with his mouth speaking his chant and
holding a crystal while we have a nice
shot on Ian changing again.
There's a good circling motion of the
camera with Ian in a big cage
and trying to plead to R.B. on letting
We spot a nice conversation between Ian and Winston with a cat and
discussing the cat and other situations
in the big cage.
There's a good discussion between Sheriff Fuller towards Winston in a cage trying to talk reason to him
showing good frustrations while he loses control laughing and not acting
There's a good shot on R.B. hosting
a freakshow in a carnival tent and a shot
on Winston tied to a chain and
then doing the chant with R.B. acting menacing along with neat effects
on him turning and looking monstrous. We
also spot a shot on him holding a cat and
this feline acting afraid which packs the
suspense wondering if the cat will be
okay along with a good close up shot on Winston looking worried and upset.
There's a perfect moment on Fuller pointing a gun towards R.B. with him looking mellow and not doing
anything which leaves a good impression
that something is going to happen when he
tries to handcuff him. There's a good
shot looking below R.B.'s waist
with his hands turning into claws and Fuller watching in terror.
We spot a good struggle between Fuller picking up Ian by the neck
with a perfect shot as well as him turning into a werewolf and then having a
battle against one another which looked
very fun and enjoyable to watch.
Bottom line is like the previous
sequel this one was enjoyable too showing
a battle between a werewolf and a vampire
with freaks at a carnival. It's a cheesy film but in a well done way
and interesting showing a freakmaster
controlling on someone turning into a
werewolf which is almost disturbing like
training an animal to be vicous and not
wanting to. Lots of campy dialogues and some good
scenery at a funhouse too using alot of
imagination for this low budgeter. However, it tries to be funny but it
tries way too hard as I didn't laugh but
loved the effects on the freakmaster
turning into a vampire as the vampire
effects look similar to that creature
from Jeepers Creepers
which I bet someone saw this film and got
The acting is very
well done as Brendan Hughes
(Ian) played a good troubled one in the film
who knew his stuff playing a werewolf
drifter. Sometimes his energy was low
when he transforms into one though but
the rest was fine. He drew his
frusterations very well too. She really doesn't react well
while being in pain by transforming into
Michele Matheson (Elizabeth) had the prefect
looks in the film and right attitude
since we always need an actress being a
target at times for the terror in horror
films. She seemed to get into character
in a fine way too. Does well nearly panicking thinking
she's trapped in an exit room when terror strikes.
Sean Gregory Sullivan (Winston) seems a bit
too plain but drew his sensitivity quite
well as a misfit freak at the carnival
that everyone picked on. Oh well not
everyone is cut out for the business.
Antonio Fargas (Bellamey) came across very
freakily with his tall and intimidating
like features and had the good firm voice
too. All of this looked good.
Bruce Payne (R.B. Harker) was the best actor
playing the leader of the freaks at the
carnival showing his expressionless
attitude and sounding extremely clear
with his speaking making him convincingly
wicked and evil with everything he does.
He really was a true horror character
Gary Cervantes (Sheriff Fuller) at first seemed a
little below average with his work as a
sheriff but he really picked it up
showing his aggressiveness and freaked
out reactions for the scene's he had to
be that way.
Christopher Morley (Tooney) did his job
nicely as a half man and half women with
his vicious behavior and bullying too. He
sounded convincingly like an evil woman
A chicken's head
is bit off
There's some slaughtered animals
A man is torn up
Someone's stomach is bitten
Some minor neck bites
A vampire's skin is crumbling off but it
looks very fake
We spot various different
sounding type of music composed by
Patrick Gleeson such as the guitar
twanging outlaw style for some of the
outside dusty scene's with the odd
harmonica playing. We also have the
thunderous low synthesizer playing done
in a calssical style with some high icy
sounds too when we spot some dark

Winston: But I don't wanna look
R.B Harker: I may
not know your name... or your face, BOY!
But I know you. I've been watching you. I
know what you need. You're the worst kind

But you can't! You can't deny your true
