Long thought lost, Carnival Magic (1982) remained a legend among underground film fans ... until 2009, when a 35mm print was discovered in an old warehouse. Now available for the first time in any home entertainment format, this cult favorite shines again, fully-restored and in high definition. In one of the most bizarre kid s films ever made, Markov the Magnificent (Don Stewart, TV s Guiding Light, Knots Landing, Dragnet) is a talented conjurer ... but his career is fading. Partnering with an über-intelligent simian sidekick, Alexander the Great ( Alex ), a chimp with the ability to speak, the duo quickly becomes a small-time circus biggest draw. But when jealousies arise, they must defeat a drunken rival and an evil doctor to stay together ... and alive. From maverick B-movie director Al Adamson and featuring a parade of colorful carny folk portrayed by Regina Carrol (Doctor Dracula, Black Heat, Jessi s Girls), Jennifer Houlton (TV s The Doctors), Howard Segal (The Last Game) and more. Bonus features include audio commentary with Cult Film Historian Joe Rubin and Producer Elvin Feltner, interview with Elvin Feltner, out takes, original movie art postcard, original TV trailer, theatrical trailer, before and after restoration demo, 5.1 audio mix and Spanish subtitles.

I am a big Al Adamson fan. He directed this. it is totally strange and wonderful. A very B rated film. ok A C rated, but it is great. I love the fact that you can see all of the original carny stuff. Reminds me of the times we went to the carnaval when i was a kid in the 70's. This has some good acting and a good story about a magician who has a talking chimp. The chimp is very likable and sweet. i love that it looks very regional and they used unknown people. The film has a great "Reality" look to it.
