In 1936, at the height of the Great Depression, the Knuckles Brothers Show rolls into yet another dustbowl town. Like many other traveling sideshows of the era, they set up shop to thrill and delight the locals with amazing acts, terrifying freaks, and other puzzling oddities. But when a sinister force begins savagely killing off carnival workers and the bodies start piling up, Detective Conrad Ellison is assigned to the case. Could the culprit be the cryptic, tough-as-nails carnival owner Helen? What about the Strong Man, Virgil Handso? Or could it be the snake handler, Ratty the Ratcatcher?or his pal, William the Sword Swallower? A bloody good frightfest, CARNIES stars Reggie "The Hardest Working Man in Horror" Bannister (Phantasm I ? IV, Bubba Ho-Tep, Wishmaster) and Doug Jones (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer).

A powerful, emotional and relevant reminder of the heartbreaking toll war takes on the innocent, this award-winning documentary tells the story of the Japanese invasion of Nanking, China, in the early days of World War II. As part of a campaign to conquer all of China, the Japanese subjected Nanking?which was then China's capital?to months of aerial bombardment, and when the city fell, the Japanese army unleashed murder and rape on a horrifying scale. In the midst of the rampage, a small group of Westerners banded together to establish a Safety Zone where over 200,000 Chinese found refuge. Unarmed, these missionaries, university professors, doctors and businessmen?including a Nazi named John Rabe?bore witness to the events, while risking their own lives to protect civilians from slaughter. The story is told through deeply moving interviews with Chinese survivors, chilling archival footage and photos, testimonies of former Japanese soldiers?and a staged reading of the Westerners' letters and diaries by Woody Harrelson, Mariel Hemingway, Jurgen Prochnow and others. NANKING is a testament to the courage and conviction of individuals who were determined to act in the face of evil and a powerful tribute to the resilience of the Chinese people?a gripping account of light in the darkest of times. This version of the film features descriptive narration for the blind and visually impaired, created by the Narrative Television Network.
