The first word on a new indie film coming out of Florida, Big Top Evil, hit our inbox today, and we have all the early details on the flick along with a look at the official trailer.
Producer/director Sean Haitz (Mangrove Slasher 2) told us of Big Top Evil: “It’s a horror/thriller. We have been lucky enough to have some of the most famous circus acts from all around the world appear in it, some even working with the Ringling Bros. circus. Such acts as the famous Wallendas. We shot the entire film in the famous circus town of Sarasota; it was a real thrill to shoot at the Ringling headquarters and other circus locations. We used all volunteer actors, and we will be releasing Big Top Evil through our company, Faced Productions, later this year.” His co-director on the project is Chris Potter.
A group of mid-twenties friends are on a road trip to visit Mangrove County, the scene of the increasingly infamous Mangrove Slasher massacre. On their way they encounter a few problems and meet Candy, a country girl with a dark side, who suggests they spend the night at her parents’ motel, which just so happens to be next to their family-run circus. What these travelers don’t know is this circus is filled with sadistic cannibals. When a ragtag threesome of outlaws unexpectedly show up, guns-a-blazing, things really get out of hand. Not wanting the infamy of their very own massacre, the group must now fight their way out of a literal freak show of psychotic clowns, demented half-human creatures, and a couple of giant galoots that all work for a circus family dead set on keeping their secrets safe.
