Encyclopocalypse Announces Novelization of Billy Pon’s CIRCUS OF THE DEAD to be Written By Joshua Millican: "Encyclopocalypse Publications will release a novelization of Billy “Bloody Bill” Pon’s transgressive, Texas-set clown horror, Circus of the Dead.

The movie’s rocky road to distribution didn’t stop it from obtaining cult status and rabid fans in Texas and beyond. Awards and accolades for Circus of the Dead include: WINNER Best Feature at Housecore Film Festival (Phil Anselmo from Pantera’s fest), Phoenix Fearcon, Tucson Terrorfest, Scream in the Dark Film Festival, Chicago Horror Film Festival,  WINNER Award Extreme at Feratum International Film Festival, WINNER Audience Choice at Twisted Tales Film Festival, Sadique-Master in Paris, France, WINNER Most Shocking Fright Night Theater Film Festival, WINNER Best Monster Horror Feature Film at Fear Fete Film Festival, WINNER Directors Choice Award at Chicago Horror Film Festival, WINNER Best Special FX Chicago Horror Film Festival, WINNER Best Actor for Housecore Horror Film Festival, Tucson Terrorfest, Twisted Tales Film Festival, Fright night Theater Film Festival, Chicago Horror Film Festival, Fear Fete Film Festival.

 In 2020, DREAD re-released Circus of the Dead on Blu-ray, making it available to new fans worldwide. Today, you can stream Circus of the Dead for free on Tubi and Amazon Prime!

The deal was brokered by Joshua Millican, former Editor-in-Chief at Dread Central, who will write the novelization. “Obviously, I feel deeply connected to this film, having played a part in bringing it to physical media and streaming services. Billy Pon is an unflinching filmmaker, and I can’t wait to flesh out his sinister screenplay. Papa Corn is one crazy mother…”

In Circus of the Dead: A sadistic group of clowns kidnap an unsuspecting man and his daughters, forcing him to play a deadly game in order to save his family.


Pon directed Circus of the Dead from a screenplay co-scribed by Lee Ankrum. The film stars Parrish Randall, Chanel Ryan, and Bill Oberst Jr. as the notorious psycho clown Papa Corn.

“Am I excited about this novelization? Big time!” says Pon. “There was so much left out of the movie, extreme content wise or for time. The script called for a two hour twenty minute film. We made an hour and forty five minute version. Papa Corn’s inner dialogue alone is gonna take the novelization to places way further than the film could! Josh is the perfect person to tackle this task. I’ve been a fan of his since day one and he’s championed the film from the very beginning and is very excited to enter the big top!”

Sean Duregger, Managing Editor of Encyclopocalypse says: “Circus of the Dead is a perfect film for novelization. We can’t wait to unleash the sadistic antics of Papa Corn on a new generation of horror readers. Billy’s screenplay crackles with devious mayhem and Joshua Millican has what it takes to elevate it to the status of high splattery art.”

Novelizations are making a comeback, and Encyclopocalypse Publications is on the tip of the (bloody) spearhead. Popular novelizations from Encyclopocalypse include Fright Night, Wishmaster, Re-animator, and Attack of the Killer Tomatoes

Encyclopocalypse hopes to release the novelization of Circus of the Dead in Q1 of 2024."
