All of October we feature films just for Halloween curated by Paul Freitag-Fey with films provided by the American Genre Film Archive! 

Malatesta's Carnival of Blood (1973)

Plot: The Norris family get jobs working at a seedy old carnival as a cover for searching for their missing son who disappeared after visiting said carnival. Eccentric manager Mr. Blood turns out to be a vampire while the evil owner Malatesta rules over a gaggle of ghastly ghouls who watch silent movies when they aren't feasting on human flesh.
