Sideshow (2000)

Two teenage couples and ones younger brother in a wheelchair go to the carnival and forget the first rule of carnivals - never mess with the carnies.  They can fuck you up bad.

After treating the midget ringmaster like a doll, the group receives passes to the freak show and goes to a fortune teller who tells them they will get what they desire and what they deserve.  But you know those damn carnies aren't going to give them their desires without a catch, and since some of the kids are jerks we aren't going to care.

The freak show is pretty freaky. The kids in the wheelchair keeps explaining how things can be done with makeup, but even he starts getting creeped out and then one of the girls runs off. Second rule of carnivals - if a midget recommends a shortcut out of the carnival for fifty cents, it's not going to work out well for you.

I'm not a Full Moon fan, but this was okay.  There's nothing really scary about it, but you know the kids are going to get what they deserve, which is fine with me.
