The circus is in town and you are invited to the scariest show on earth! Ladies and gentlemen, children of all ages (maybe nix that last part), prepare yourselves for four tales of terror from under the big top!
Shriekshow is a horror anthology set on Halloween night that follows four friends as they break into a supposedly haunted abandoned amusement park for a night of partying. Once inside they stumble upon a sinister Ringmaster setting up a carnival and he regales them with four tales of terror.
In the first story, a group of friends on a weekend fishing trip encounter a bloodthirsty creature deep in the woods. Next, a group of thugs burst into Erin and Camille’s home looking for drug money, but nothing can prepare them for the horrifying nightmare that is about to be unleashed.
Then, two US marshals investigating a series of disappearances in a small rural town are terrorized by an evil Mennonite cult. And finally, years after escaping the worst nightmare possible as a child, Cameron is getting ready to celebrate Halloween. But this October he’s not alone. A murderous clown from his past has returned to get the one that got away.
Director/producer Brad Twigg says: “I’ve always been a big fan of anthologies and I think they’re a lot of fun. With Shriekshow I want to create a unique and entertaining film that has a retro 80’s feel and gives you nightmares after you watch it. Something that takes you back to your childhood when you would go to the video store on a weekend and rent a bunch of horror videos and stay up all night watching them.”
“I want the viewer to experience a blissful sense of nostalgia as they watch the film, taking them back to a simpler time when horror was great. I’m really proud of the script and was fortunate to work with some extremely talented writers on this project. They all really outdid themselves. Shriekshow is going to be one wild ride full of psychos, creatures, clowns, gore and lots of scares. Don’t forget to fasten your seat belts.”
