Three showgirls head to Las Vegas for work when their car breaks down. Andre (Andrew Prine) offers to help them and takes them to his place where he keeps women confined in chains and makes them perform circus tricks in his barn. His father, who has become a homicidal mutant because of the homestead's proximity to a nuclear power plant, lives next to them in a shed.

DVD Verdict panned the film, commenting that it was "just dull and dumb". In the book Cult Horror Films Welch Everman criticized the movie's attempt to contain what he saw as "phony feminism", as he felt that it was added as a way to allow viewers to enjoy the movie's violence against its female protagonists and "not feel guilty afterwards". Letterboxd gave the film a mixed review: "Overall, TERROR CIRCUS is a mixed-bag. There's parts that are mind-numbingly plodding, but other parts that deliver the trash horror goods."
