“The footage I’ve seen is incredible – and I know horror fans will appreciate it too, so we’ve decided to give them a little taste”, says Leopard. “We look forward to inviting everyone to the circus later this year!”

CIRCUS KANE will be unleashed in all its bloody glory at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
