    Description: When it comes to UK 1960's horror films* Hammer studios gets most of the attention (and deservingly so) but they were hardly the only player in town. A very good example of non-Hammer British horror is "Circus of Fear" starring Klaus Kinski and Christopher Lee. The plot concerns a gang of criminals who take refuge in a circus following a big heist. There they find an odd lion tamer who always wears a black hood after he was deformed in a serious accident. With the police still on their tail* they soon discover that people are dieing mysterious in accidents.

    All in all* a really enjoyable movie. It's pretty campy and often silly* but is a good deal of fun Its great to see Kinski and Lee together. They are two icons of horror/ exploitation/ cult film-making whose presence always makes a movie worth watching* so to see them together is a real treat. The other members of the cast also give fine performances. This film has a fun score* solid direction from John Llewellyn Moxey (a director primarily known for his work in TV suspense series like "Murder She Wrote") and an all round nice and lively feel. "Circus of Fear" an under-rated* forgotten gem* well worth checking out.
