Anne Bergfeld and Karin Michelsen star as two girls working the night shift in a remote gas station who unwittingly become the stars of a terrifying show streamed live on the dark web. Held captive by a sadistic ringmaster (Damon Younger) their survival instincts are stretched to the limit as an unseen audience decide their fate.

Director Soren Juul Petersen, a former employee of Lars Von Triers Zentropa Studios, describes THE RINGMASTER as “an exploration of our curiosity and complicity with voyeurism and violence in the age of the internet.”

Based on the award-winning novel by Steen Langstrup, THE RINGMASTER became a buzz title on the festival circuit with screenings at FrightFest (UK), Monster Fest (Australia), BIFFF (Brussels), Motel X (Portugal), Macabro (Mexico), Utopiales (France), San Sebastian (Spain), Rojo Sangre (Argentina), Scary Movies (New York) and HorrorHound (Cleveland) where it won Best Film.
