The Last Circus (Balada Triste de Trompeta) - red band trailer Directed by: Alex de la Iglesia Starring: Carlos Areces, Antonia de la Torre Rating: R Release Date: August 12, 2011 (limited)
TRAILER SCORE: 7/10
Thoughts by TSR: The opening moments of this trailer look like a parody of an artsy European film. A sad clown, putting on make up before gazing longingly at a beautiful performer. Then things pick up and it starts to go a little off the rails. I actually had to watch this one twice to get a grip on it. I'm assuming the action occurs during the Spanish Civil War. After that we get kinky sex, what look like zombie clowns and an orgy of violence. This could be fabulous.
My one word of warning is for anyone afraid of clowns, I'm pretty sure just seeing this trailer will make it worse. It probably won't help my fear of carnies either.
