EPISODE ONE (4/25/09)


"Run, little girl... hide, little girl..."


Lauren Nasman as "The Girl."


The lawyer (Marz Richards) of a deceased carnival owner,
whose death was reportedly accidental, reads the will.


His sister Geraldine (Alyssa Preston) is grief stricken...
but recovers when told she's inherited her brother's fortune.


With his mother, Lenore (Sarah Schweppe), at his
side, son Danny (Joe Fria) waits to learn his share.


His full inheritance:  one ticket to the carnival.


There are new acts at the carnival, including Vinchenzo the magician (Marz Richards)
and the sexy siamese Van Winkle twins (Kat Bardot & Jennifer Fenten),
who are "A three way to go, what a show."


Creepy puppeteer Craven Moon (Pat Towne).


Craven Moon demonstrates his no-strings puppetry skills on the lifeless Harlequin (Jaime Robledo).


Danny confides in carnival barker Jerry, "The Gator Man" (Bryan Krasner)
that he believes his father's death was no accident,
and asks Jerry's help in investigating.


Left alone, the Harlequin jerks to life... and sings a warning.

EPISODE TWO (5/2/09)


"Welcome, Gentlemen..."


Torch (Ronald Keck) breathes flame.


Danny begins to ask questions, but the carnies won't tell him much.


The Van Winkle twins warn Craven Moon
that Danny's asking questions.


In letters to his mother, Danny says that a woman who was sawed in half
never returned... and there have been other dissapearances.


Danny consults the Fortune Teller (Alyssa Preston)  - and, with the other
carny folk gathered 'round, she fingers Danny as his own father's murderer!

EPISODE THREE (5/30/09) - PLAYOFFS WEEK ONE!


The Girl (now played by Bianca Caruso) doesn't know how she got here.
Craven Moon chloroforms her as she begins to question what's happening.


"Why would I come back to this awful place to find out
who murdered my father if I was the one who killed him!?"


Lenore frets about her son's safety.


Torch tells Danny he knows the Bubble Girl (Lauren Nasman).  Her name is Cassandra,
and she and Danny grew up next door to each other... until her parents were murdered.


When Jerry doubts the Fortune Teller's powers, she points out that
she only said that Danny is a murderer... not who he killed.
And he hasn't killed anybody... yet.

EPISODE FOUR (6/6/09) - PLAYOFFS WEEK TWO!


The Van Winkle sister (played this week by Kat Bardot and Laura Sperrazza)
seduce Danny, and tell him that Vinchenzo holds a clue.


Meanwhile, Craven Moon and Vinchenzo put
their terrible plan for The Girl into motion.


Murder.


Meanwhile, Danny inexplicably strangles Tina Van Winkle;
afterwards, he doesn't seem to understand why he did it.
The other carnies surround him, looking smug.

EPISODE FIVE (6/13/09) - PLAYOFFS WEEK THREE!
Photos by C.M. Gonzalez, plus stills taken from video by Suze Campagna


Mina grieves for her sister, the scar on her
side a permanent reminder of her absence.


Jerry is skeptical that Danny killed anybody,
but the other carnies warn him not to investigate.


Jerry is startled by a figure.  "You!  No... it can't be!"


Meanwhile, Danny wakes up in Craven Moon's tent
and learns the horrifying secret of his mannequins.


Dance of the Mannequins


Meanwhile, the figure was Danny's father Abner (Ken Roht), not dead at all.
But Jerry's about to be.  "You know about my accident?  You know too much!"
