Nightmare Alley


Nightmare Alley
When charismatic but down-on-his-luck Stanton Carlisle endears himself to clairvoyant Zeena and her has-been mentalist husband Pete at a traveling carnival, he crafts a golden ticket to success, using this newly acquired knowledge to grift the wealthy elite of 1940s New York society. With the virtuous Molly loyally by his side, Stanton plots to con a dangerous tycoon with the aid of a mysterious psychiatrist who might be his most formidable opponent yet.

Tomatometer quote iconWhile it may not hit quite as hard as the original, Guillermo del Toro’s Nightmare Alley is a modern noir thriller with a pleasantly pulpy spin.
