A couple of bits of artwork for one of several new flicks featuring prolific genre actor Bill Oberst, Jr., entitled Circus of the Dead, have arrived; and they’re here for your enjoyment without the peanuts and the screaming barkers.
Oberst describes his character, Papa Corn, as “a homicidal serial rapist with a taste for necrophilia whose day job happens to be as a circus clown. He and his highly disturbed fellow clowns use the circus as cover for some of the darkest and most graphic acts of violence I have ever seen in a script or on a set”.
“The effects team, led by Marcus Koch and Matthew Ash, has been churning out corpses and body parts non-stop for the entire 5-week shoot,” says Oberst. “We’ve sawed off heads, hands and tongues; stripped the skin off a living man’s face; drooled clown slime on multiple females in varying states of undress and chased a stark naked woman through a parking garage with a real cattle prod. And believe me, that’s the mild stuff. This is balls-out horror.”
Director Billy Pon is planning a spring 2014 release. The film also stars Parrish Randall, Brad Potts, Chanel Ryan, Ryan Clapp, Rusty Edwards and Mike Williams. Oberst invites horror fans to support Circus of the Dead by giving it a “like” on IMDb.
A man becomes entangled in a deadly morality game when the circus comes to town and a sadistic clown forces him to examine the things in life he takes for granted in the most horrific ways.
