3.0 out of 5 stars Carnival of Blood is Lots of FUN!! August 21, 2002
By A Customer
CARNIVAL OF BLOOD is quite a good exploitation horror film from the seventies. A slasher runs around killing extremely annoying women on Coney Island. Women are not portrayed very kindly in this film. They are cruel, pushy, money grubbing and all the one's that die take advantage of men in some way. The last victim, a bleached blonde, middle aged woman is quite a hoot. She is like Cyndi Lauper gone to seed with some Edith Massey thrown in. On the other hand CURSE OF THE HEADLESS HORSEMAN is absolute dreck. Like BILLY JACK crossed with an episode of SCOOBY DOO...it just meanders all over the place with hippies, well acting like hippies, while trying to solve a stupid mystery which really turns out to be kind of like, "I would have gotten away with it if it weren't for..." Horror films where hippies living in an unpopular theme park (like it was a commune) while uncovincingly dropping acid, and being killed off one by one by a wannabe yuppie is not my cup of tea. It sounds way more interesting than it is. Buy this for CARNIVAL OF BLOOD and watch it twice before you ever attempt the horror of the second feature.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Something Weird Carnival October 1, 2009
Verified Purchase
This double feature DVD from Something Weird Video contains the movie Carnival of Blood(1970/89mins) and Curse of the Headless Horseman(1972/81mins). Carnival of blood takes place at the famed Coney Island in New York and is a great time capsule of the place from 1970. This movie is sick, deranged, and charming in it's own way. Everything looks dirty and creepy, just right for this movie. Curse of the Headless Horseman is also deranged, nonsensical, but not as charming. Still, the sickness factor is up there.

Additionally, like all other SWV DVD's, there a bunch extras to bloody your appetite. There are two combo TV spots, about 30 seconds each(Curse of the Headless Horseman/Carnival of Blood) and 8 trailers(Asylum of Satan, Crypt of Dark Secrets, The Dead One, House of Exorcism, Hunchback of the Morgue, She Freak, 3 on a Meathook, and Werewolves on Wheels). You also get 3 Short Subjects. The first is called Carnival Show and runs about 9 mins. This short is in b&w and looks to be from the 40's. There's a guy who sells 'frankfurters' and does a musical about it.

The next two shorts are homemade. The first one is called The Hunchback of Massapequa Park and runs about 5 mins. There is no dialogue just dubbed in spooky music. It is in color and appears to have been made in the 70's. Shot in a real neighborhood and very, very weird! The second one is called Hands of Justice which runs about 6 mins. Also no dialogue. At certain points you see a computer screen with some sentences explaining the story. This thing is weird, gory and made in 1981.

The last extra is a Gallery of Horror Drive-In Exploitation Art with Horrorama Radio-Spot Rarities.

This installment in the "Something Weird" DVD collection has one GREAT sleazy & scary movie titled, Carnival Of Blood. Coney Island Carnival has a murderer who just LOVES to kill hilariously ANNOYING women is on the loose. Who COULD it BE??? A strange little sicky! One of the best perfomances is given by a very young, Burt Young as a hunchbacked carnie. (You know, Paulie from the Rocky movies!)
The Curse Of The Headless Horseman is just plain awful. Mark Callahan inherits is dead uncle's Wild West tourist attraction. Though he and his hippy friends have been warned. They ingore the "curse" only to meet with the sharp end of the famous and ghostly marauder's knife! Cameo appearance by Andy Warhol's 5 seconds of fame person, Ultra-Violet who carries around a Superman lunchbox!!!
Some of the best things about the whole "Something Weird" DVDs are the extras like: movie shorts, TV spots, Shockorama horror trailers for lots of their weird movies, galleries of exploitation art and even Horrorama RADIO SPOT ADS!
These DVD's are fun and interesting if you are into this kind of genre...

3.0 out of 5 stars The great Burt Young April 8, 2003
First off the Curse of the Headless Horseman is to be nice not very good,but don't let that stop you from watching Carnival Of Blood.It's a true sleaze classic with a great performance by a young Burt Young as Gimpy.As usual with a something weird dvd the it's packed with extras.

Carnival of Blood isn't a terrible movie. It is low budget and at times, hilariously inept. There are alot of night shots of Coney Island and much of it looks like it was shot with natural light. This isn't the case with the second murder scene which apparently takes place under a pier. The scene is a bad example of "day for night" filmmaking. This is typical of low budget movies but what wrecks the day for night film making here is a pair of guys running across the beach in a bathing suit in the background. Sunbathing at night... When two of the five characters in the movie discover her body, she's breathing and her stomach which was quite nasty the last time the audience sees it, is dry and blood free. The third scene also looks it was shot at 2 pm with a few black stockings over the lense.

Burt Young appears in what according to IMDB is his first film and he's not too bad. He plays "Gimpy" who is a typical horror movie character replete with a hunchback. There are only about five characters in this so it isn't too hard to figure out who's the bad guy.

The ending makes almost no sense. The leading lady, fights with her fiancee because she is afraid to go back to the carnival where three murders took place. Why does her fiancee insist on taking her along? Don't know. What does she do after the fight to take her mind off of the fight? She goes to the carnival. Alone.

Carnival of Blood isn't the greatest movie. It does manage to be creepy and disturbing despite its flaws. This movie is NOTHING compared to the CURSE OF THE HEADLESS HORSEMAN.

For my money, Curse of the Headless Horseman is the worst movie ever made.
