Agnes (Anne Bergfeld) and Belinda (Karin Michelsen) are working the night shift at a gas station in the middle of nowhere on a night that promises to be even less eventful than usual, as its the night of the biggest sports final of the year, meaning everybody will spend their night at home eyes glued to the TV - and that's quite ok for the two women as Agnes plans on working on her thesis while Belinda needs to sort things with her boyfriend Kenny (Mads Koudal). Thing is, the night isn't nearly as peaceful as expected, as they're freaked out by a couple of customers (Kim Sønderholm, Gustav Scavenius) who might or might not have a woman with her mouth taped shut on their car's backseat, then the pumping machine is moved around despite the fact that there's nobody there but Agnes and Belinda (or at least supposed to be there), then someone sets fire to the car wash, and ultimately, Kenny turns up, stabbed to almost-death. And before our heroines can figure out what's going on, they find themselves tied to chairs as the centerpiece of a perverted TV show where they're tortured by a twisted clown, the Ringmaster (Damon Younger) ...


The Ringmaster sure is a film done by a team perfectly capable of playing the horror organ: It has plenty of tension, suspense, action, jump scares, and utter gruesomeness, all in the right places, and put together in such a way that's not only effective by itself but also manages to carry a story that completely shifts tune about midway through - from suspense piece to visceral shocker - without missing a beat in the process. And it's the originality of the story that really elevates the film above technical finesse, while a very solid cast makes the thing utterly relatable, all resulting in one cool genre ride.
