Video: CIRCUS OF THE DEAD is Just as Scary in Black & White

One of Dread’s most terrifying offerings of 2020 was the re-release of Billy Pon’s Circus of the Dead. Originally released in 2014, the film amassed a sizable cult following before going out of print due to the original distributor’s insolvency. Our re-release featured stunning new key art and a slew of extras, making it a must-have for fans of circus and clown-themed horror movies.

A sadistic group of clowns kidnap an unsuspecting man and his daughters, forcing him to play a deadly game in order to save his family.

Circus of the Dead is directed by Billy “Bloody Bill” Pon from a script he co-wrote with Lee Ankrum. The film stars Bill Oberst Jr., Parrish Randall, and Chanel Ryan.

A film shot in a grindhouse style with grease-painted freaks and flowing with bright red blood is a colorful nightmare, to say the least. Still, a recent creative exercise proves Circus of the Dead could have been just as terrifying in another format.

Producers released a black & white version of a pivotal scene from Circus of the Dead. While the vibe is obviously different than the original presentation, it’s nonetheless uniquely terrifying! Give it a spin below.
