Looking for thrills, four small town teens elect to spend the night hiding in a carnival Funhouse spook-ride, or for UK fans, Ghost Train. Sweet Amy Harper (Elizabeth Berridge) lies to her parents twice, saying that she's going to a movie and then that she's spending the night at the house of her hot-to-trot friend Liz (Largo Woodruff). Liz's date college boy Richie (Miles Chapin), is eager to do the deed with her at the first opportunity. Amy's date is the muscular but ambition-challenged gas station attendant Buzz Dawson (Cooper Huckabee), who smokes dope in the car and coerces Amy into one bad decision after another. The boys and girls take in all of the carnival's sordid entertainments, including the magic show of Marco the Magnificent (William Finley) and a freak show with its misshapen livestock. They even peep at the strip show. Hiding in the haunted house ride after closing, the four witness a bizarre spectacle. The circus fortuneteller Madame Zena (Sylvia Miles) sells sex to Gunther, "The Monster" (Wayne Doba), who never takes off his Frankenstein mask and gloves. He's the son of Conrad Straker, one of the carnival owners (Kevin Conway). Zena and Gunther's encounter turns violent, and our four protagonists find themselves locked in the confusing, scary funhouse interior with at least two homicidal maniacs. Only one person knows that they're trapped inside -- Amy's precocious little brother Joey (Shawn Carson), who has independently snuck out of the house to check out the carnival on his own.
