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 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...

4.0 out of 5 stars It's so bad, it's good! Nostalgic, too. November 28, 2011
By Joker
This is a Something Weird Video Double Feature that contains Carnival of Blood (1970) and Curse of the Headless Horseman (1974).

Carnival of Blood is one of those movies that is so bad, it's good. This is a no-budget B movie that really should be classified as a C movie, if there is such a thing. Basically the plot involves a psychopathic killer who stalks victims around the Coney Island amusement park in New York. This movie, believe it or not, has pretty good acting, but horrible direction, horrible cinematography, horrible lighting, horrible camerawork, and horrible special effects. BUT, there is something about this movie that hits the spot with me. I like the fact that it's set mostly at night in an amusement park, which is right up my alley. I'm also a fan of raw, grainy, unpolished film instead of everything being so crystal clear, polished, and infested with C.G.I. all the time. I like the time period the movie is set in as well, which is 1970, the height of the hippie era. Now, I don't care for the whole hippie subculture thing, but I feel a sense of nostalgia when I see old, grainy, early '70s films like this one. The hairstyles, the clothing, the cars, the fact that life was so much simpler back then - really resonates with me. Hippie folk music was used throughout the movie, and I feel that it's perfect for the movie. The music will really put you through a time warp. The only carnival music you'll hear is the music playing on the fairgrounds at Coney Island. It's fascinating to look at the old rides and attractions that were at Coney Island during this time period.
