Now we realize that not everyone may be aware of this film yet and we want to do our part to help bring it the attention it deserves to help in securing distribution, so we are happy to finally get to bring you some News straight from Pon himself!
Circus of the Dead is the story of a man who becomes entangled in a deadly morality game when the circus comes to town and a sadistic clown forces him to examine the things he takes for granted in the most horrific ways.
Family man Don’s visit to an old, run down Big Top circus and chance encounter with a nihilistic group of clowns leaves him fighting for his life and the lives of those he loves. As Don becomes drawn deeper into lead clown Papa Corn’s games, he comes closer to the edge of reason and sanity. Armed with guns, knives and a ’68 Camaro, the clowns lead Don on an all night crime spree through oil soaked West Texas. Papa Corn’s wild ride brings blood, gore and mayhem to all he encounters.
Award winning actor, Bill Oberst, Jr. (Take this Lollipop, Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies), brings depth and menace to the role of Papa Corn, who’s lack of morality and obsessive twist on an old Mexican card game makes him one of the scariest clowns in the history of film.
Circus of the Dead is the first feature for filmmaker Billy “Bloody Bill” Pon, writer and director of the award winning horror short Doll Boy. The locally shot Doll Boy has garnered much attention over the last 3 years, as an Official Selection in Elvira’s Horror Hunt, and winning several awards including “Best Villain” at HorrorHound Weekend in Indianapolis, Indiana, and at Panic Fest Short Film Showcase in Kansas City, Missouri and “Best Short” at the Lagniappe Film and Music Festival in Beaumont, Texas. Doll Boy has also been a featured short two years in a row at the annual Texas Frightmare Weekend in Dallas and has been accepted to over 20 film festivals throughout the world.
