Carnival Magic/LOST

For his penultimate film, exploitation legend Al Adamson (SATAN’S SADISTS, DRACULA VS. FRANKESTEIN) made perhaps the strangest move of his career with this surreal foray into ‘family entertainment’: Severin Kids presents Adamson’s first children’s movie, a delightful tale of alcoholism, domestic violence, a talking chimp with a brassiere fetish, vivisection, suicide, ‘The Freak-Out Girl’ Regina Carrol – in her final performance – flaunting an array of skintight/low-cut outfits, and not a single role for children. Don Stewart (THE GUIDING LIGHT) and Joe Cirillo(GHOSTBUSTERS) co-star in the infamous ‘80s oddity that has been hailed as “possibly the worst kiddie movie ever made” (DVD Drive-In) and “the finest family film since E.T.” (Joe Franklin), now scanned from the only surviving pre-print 35mm elements with all-new Special Features – including his last complete feature, the Sandra Dee starrer LOST – that reveal Al’s bizarre kiddie matinee legacy.
