The long thought lost cult classic has now brought magicians, monkeys, mad scientists, and more to Blu-ray!
Film Chest and Virgil Films & Entertainment quietly released 'Carnival Magic' on Blu-ray on January 25.
The late Al Adamson’s G-rated talking monkey movie has been the source of rumors and wild speculation for nearly 30 years. Some insist only a single print was ever made, while others claim the film never saw the light of day until a copy was “found” in Adamson’s Florida home shortly after he was murdered (on the cusp of a reported comeback effort) in 1995, his corpse discovered beneath the concrete and tile-covered whirlpool bath in his newly remodeled bathroom. Adamson was married to the film’s star, Regina Carrol, from 1972 to 1992, when she passed away from cancer.
The release is a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack with digitally restored video in high-definition from the original 35mm film assets presented in 16x9 aspect ratio, the original sound plus a new 5.1 mix, and special features will include an interview with producer Elvin Feltner; outtakes; audio commentary with cult film historian Joe Rubin and Feltner; “Making Of” featurette; original theatrical trailer.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.99.
