Nightmare Alley

2021 | Rated R | 2h 30min

An extraordinary description of a freak-show geek alcoholic and abject and the object of the voyeuristic crowd's gleeful disgust and derision going about his work at a county fair. Young Stan Carlisle is working as a carny, and he wonders how a man could fall so low. There's no way in hell, he vows, that anything like that will ever happen to him.
