Low-life, carny Bunny Gibbons wants nothing more then to corner the market on horror shows. Using the inheritance left by his deceased mother, he purchases the actual sedan of serial killer Ed Gein. His dream is to be the main attraction at the carnival, but his one-man act just isn’t drawing the crowds he’d imagined. The car is always having problems, and the other workers in the carnival start whispering about Gibbon’s unexplainable bad luck. They seem to think the car is cursed.
