The Order of Mystery is a secret society of freaks dating back to ancient Sumeria, and as savage and barbarian they seem on the outside, they serve a higher purpose: They have to sacrifice a carefully chosen bunch of victims every 200 years to keep the dead from rising. And guess what, 200 years are just about up, and this time around, Lazari (Frank Walsh), the Order's de facto leader, has chosen to sacrifice Malerkus (Eric Broomfield) and his Unholy Sideshow, pretty much a circus of freaks putting on a gory yet harmless show on the outside, but actually a gang of ruthless serialkillers - well, at least they won't be missed much once they are gone, right?

But what looks like good an idea on the outside is not so good an idea on closer inspection, because Malerkus has long grown wise to the Order's mischievous plans and mobilizes his gang of killers against the Order's gang of killers and starts an all-out war. Rebecca (Han Salzman), a rather ordinary young girl who has developed an unhealthy fascination for the Unholy Sideshow, somehow gets caught in the middle of the freakwar - and then there are those on both sides who are more than willing to betray their masters, who are of course utterly insane. Oh, and above all that, the dead rise because they got tired waiting for a sacrifice to come by.


Inspired by Herschell Gordon Lewis' Wizard of Gore, the weirdness of David Lynch and Frank Henenlotter, bad circus clown humour, and of course the aesthetics of real life sideshows (several sideshow acts are actually incorporated into the film), this movie is above all one thing: Utterly weird! The plot of this movie is in fact pretty difficult to follow thanks to rather inconsequential editing, but one just can't shake the feeling that this was actually intended. Likewise many shock scenes seem to come out of nowhere, but again this might be purely intentional. And if you allow yourself to be sucked into this world of weirdness and don't pay too much heed about being actively confused, you will find yourself entertained, actually.
