HARD TO SWALLOW; Circus of Horrors promises demon dwarves and vampires at town hall show.

Byline: KATIE GRANT

HORRORS: the menu in A CULT circus show is bringing its latest "horrors" to town.

The Day of the Dead is an alternative rock and roll circus act set in Mexico. The show, due at Huddersfield Town Hall, features characters such as witch doctors, voodoo acrobats, pickled people, bendy bodies, demon dwarfs and flying vampires.

The Circus of Horrors has revamped the show to include new acts including sword swallowing and a sword walk, and it can be seen in Huddersfield on Friday, March 26 at 8pm.

Ringmaster and creator Dr Haze told the Examiner: "Huddersfield Town Hall is a smaller venue than we usually perform in but it's an intimate and friendly show and we love going there.

"Hopefully the snow will have gone by the time we come in March.

"I think the show will appeal to all sorts of people.

"It is especially popular with Goths and alternative people but it appeals to everyone and all ages.

"It's funny, sexy, unusual and bizarre and the humour is done with a forked tongue firmly in our cheek."

The musical horror begins with the funeral procession of Dr Haze to a remote area of Mexico.

The group don't realise but they have picked the former burial ground of Aztec warriors to bury the doctor.

Soon they are joining the locals performing rituals to revive their leader - with disastrous consequences.

The show is directed by Pierrot Bidon while the music and story are byDr Haze with special effects by Savage Optic.
