Code Red Update On Trapped & Terror Circus


Code Red are back with a few new releases. TRAPPED and TERROR CIRCUS are not slashers per se but have tangible relations to the subgenre – TRAPPED being a revenge film and TERROR CIRCUS cut from PSYCHO cloth.

For June 21st, we have the Canadian backwoods thriller TRAPPED, directed by cult director William Fruet (DEATH WEEKEND, KILLER PARTY, SPASMS), written by John Beaird (MY BLOODY VALENTINE, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME) and photographed by award-winning cinematographer Mark Irwin (SCANNERS, VIDEODROME, THE BLOB, THE FLY, SCREAM)! An innocent camping weekend turns into terror and murder for four young university students. Henry Chatwell (Henry Silva, OCEANS 11, SHARKEY’S MACHINE, CHAINED HEAT) tortures, stalks and kills his wife’s lover, all witnessed by the students. Unable to contact the sheriff, the students return to their campsite where they are taken captive by Chatwell. Chatwell’s verdict is that the students must die! Realizing he has gone too far, two villagers release the students, but they are soon recaptured one by one, except for Roger (Nicholas Campbell, THE DEAD ZONE, tv’s DaVINCI’S INQUEST). Chatwell goes after Roger with an axe and the fight is on. When you are trapped like an animal…it’s kill or be killed!

Specs on this disc are:

Brand new 16×9 master from the original IP
Original trailer (in Spanish)

CR also have a retro action title CHOKE CANYON releasing the same day. Now onto all things TERROR CIRCUS:


To celebrate the April release date of the official DVD of TERROR CIRCUS (aka BARN OF THE NAKED DEAD), Grand Illusion Cinema in Seattle will be playing this at 11PM on April 10 & 11, a well as 17 & 18

Three showgirls are on their way to Las Vegas to hit the big time. Soon after leaving a desolate gas station in the middle of the desert their car breaks down. Luckily (?) for them the three women are saved by a seemingly nice guy named Andre. He takes the three lovely ladies back to his house. There they soon learn that Andre isn’t such a nice guy as they become new additions to his perverted circus of captive women! Tortured and abused they must escape Andre’s grasp or die one by one. Oh yeah, and did we mention the horribly disfigured mutant that lives in the shed! A.K.A. Nightmare Circus & Caged Woman 2. Co-presented by Code Red DVD.

And be sure to pre-order the official DVD of this, released thru Media Blasters. Our TERROR CIRCUS (aka BARN OF THE NAKED DEAD) DVD release has been mastered in Hi-Def from the original camera negatives! This is the best this film will ever look, and it has been properly presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.78:1 and in 16×9. Special features include an on-camera interview with star Jennifer Ashley, make-up effects artists Doug White and Byrd Holland, costume designer Alan Apone, and producer Marvin Almeas; as well as an audio commentary with White and Holland. We hope this is what the true fans of this film have been waiting for and that it was worth the wait to see the film in this fully authorized presentation!

First five to complain about titles the company are yet to release get the coveted Retro Slashers Golden Dildo Award!

  1. I’m so excited about Trapped. I love William Fruet and have never seen this! And well, Barn of the Naked Dead just kind of rules. I love Andrew Prine in it and have seen this movie in the theater!

  2. Haven’t seen any of these. All sound promising!!! But . . .

    Rape makes me queazy! Will these movies hurt my belly?

  3. I don’t remember seeing anything brutal (or even actual rape) in Barn, but it’s been awhile since I’ve seen it. It’s mostly just one of those so-bad-it’s-good kind of movies, mostly due to Andrew Prine’s hilarious OTT performance.

  4. Anyone Know When Codered Dvd Is Releasing NIGHTMARE

  5. For anyone who wants to buy the dvd of TERROR CIRCUS. Please be sure to buy the legit version Media-blasters just released, and not the bootleg version many publications/website are advertising under the title BARN OF THE NAKED DEAD. thank you.


  7. im with josh i guess were dildos and news about silent scream and the visitor and the 10 other titles they said they were releasing.
