Ambitious but passable attempt on the HG Lewis original. The camera angles, colors, and editing have a distinct and distracting music-video feel to them and dont aid the plot. Would have been better suited as a shortened anthology entry. The gore is pretty good, and there is plenty of gratuitous nudity, but neither are enough to save the patchy plot work. Even Glover's over the top performance, which is entertaining at times, doesnt feel fully committed. A crazed magician dismembers volunteers then reforms them on stage, but a news writer finds the volunteers are dying in suspiciously similar accidents after the show. Points for the excessive attempt to modernize the plot, I just cant get into the flick.
