Little Shoppe of Horrors presents
Little Shoppe of Horrors #30
In 1971, Hammer Films produced a film that was a Grimm’s fairy tale for its time, with images straight out of Fellini and Bergman. VAMPIRE CIRCUS was the first film for director Robert Young and filled with young performers and other actors not normally associated with Hammer horror films. But it was a knockout and a huge cult favorite to this day.
LSoH gives you the complete behind-the-scenes story with interviews with all the key people in front of and behind the camera, most never interviewed before, in-depth, about the film. (Note: There is nudity in this issue, as there was in the movie.)
