Severin Films presents CARNIVAL MAGIC – Al Adamson’s bizarre kiddie
For his penultimate film, exploitation legend Al Adamson (SATAN’S SADISTS,
DRACULA VS. FRANKESTEIN) made perhaps the strangest movie of his career with
this surreal foray into ‘family entertainment’.
Severin Kids presents
Adamson’s first children’s movie, a delightful tale of alcoholism, domestic
violence, a talking chimp with a brassiere fetish, vivisection, suicide, ‘The
Freak-Out Girl’ Regina Carrol – in her final performance – flaunting an array of
skintight/low-cut outfits, and not a single role for children. Don Stewart (THE
GUIDING LIGHT) and Joe Cirillo (GHOSTBUSTERS) co-star in the infamous ‘80s
oddity that has been hailed as “Possibly the worst kiddie movie ever made,” (DVD
Drive-In) and “The finest family film since E.T.” (Joe Franklin). Now scanned
from the only surviving pre-print 35mm elements with all-new Special Features –
including his last complete feature, the Sandra Dee starrer LOST – that reveal
Al’s bizarre kiddie matinee legacy.
