WELLS, ENGLAND - OCTOBER 24: Helmut Kirchmeier, who plays Hannibal, from the controversial Circus of Horrors rehearses ahead of their Halloween weekend performances at Wookey Hole on October 24, 2012 in Wells, England. The self proclaimed freak show, based in 1927 Berlin and currently on tour, promises "hair-raising entertainment and bloodthirsty burlesque" in a "phantasmagorical rollercoaster, featuring fangtastic, daredevil and bizarre circus acts from all four corners of the world" and for the first time for a show in the UK for 30 years, includes a real life Wolf Boy, Jesus "Chuy" Aceves, who has the rare condition hypertrichosis. The circus, a ITV's Britain's Got Talent finalist, is famous for its gruesome stunts, including Garry Stretch and his record-breaking elastic skin, and The Dwarf Demon Dan, who had to have surgery to remove a vacuum cleaner hose after he tried to drag the appliance with his genitals during a 2007 show.
