Summary In this surrealist cult-classic, Mary Henry (Candace Hilligoss) mysteriously survives a car wreck. In an effort to put this traumatizing incident behind her, Mary moves to Utah where she takes on a job as a church organist. However, her fresh new start is interrupted by the haunting, relentless presence of a strange man (Herk Harvey) who seems to follow where ever she goes. As her sightings of the man increase, she finds herself drawn to the dilapidated carnival on the outskirts of town. It isn't long before she discovers the terrifying secrets it holds.... "[A] unique horror movie where the low budget, gritty footage and rough performances combine to create not only an unsettling atmosphere of dread but also a study of existential angst in the face of unimaginable horror." - Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing. "...One of the most original and unsettling horror movies to come out of America during its B-movie saturated, drive-in friendly period." - Film4
