A young boy who lives in a dysfunctional home went to the carnival and met a singer. Shortly after, a murder took place. The town's sheriff is seeking answers. The singer is trying to escape her environment so is the boy. But both has to face their own horror.
The film was based on a real-life murder that occurred in Wamego in the 1950s, three blocks from the house where Steve Balderson grew up. According to Balderson, a traveling carnival visited the town each year on July 4. The murder victim disappeared on the morning of July 5, as the carnival was leaving town, and was later found to have been killed by his brother. Balderson changed the names and some details of the story for his film. He called the finished film "more fiction than fact" and not a historical piece. See more »

Karen Black's performance as Eleanor and Sandra is bar none the best acting performance I have ever seen. I have never seen an actor get so deeply immersed in a character than Black does in this film. She is excellent here. And she deserves nothing less than an Oscar for it. As for Mike Patton, his performance as Frank (Sandra's captor) and David (Eleanor's son) is also worthy of note. To watch these characters slowly grow demented throughout the course of the film was indeed amazing. If you have not seen it, don't deprive yourself any longer. Get to a showing in the theater and buy the DVD. It's a keeper. A real American classic of movies.
