A loving father runs afoul of an evil curse when he dons a clown costume for his son's birthday party, and is transformed into a vicious murderer. Andy Powers, Laura Allen, and Peter Stormare star. Directed by Jon Watts.~Jack Rodgers
I really enjoyed this! Very dark and bloody at times, a devoted dad puts on an old clown costume for his son's birthday but is then unable to remove it. The costume has a sinister history and it starts to drastically change the dad in physical and psychological ways. Pleasantly surprised!
Unlike other horror films, Clown is really unique of it's concept of body horror. I have a lot to say about it since i watched it last night. This used to be a faux trailer saying that Eli Roth produced it but production got underway after that. The movie had it's fair share of scares, gore and grotesque scenes. The Chuck-E-Cheese scene from the film really gave me serious goosebumps and got me hooked even more. The case of the dvd creeped out my mother after i bought it from Bullmoose. To me, Clown looks like an original yet disturbing horror flick.
And this one is no eception! I saw Poltergeist when I was 9 years old and I've been afraid of clowns ever since...they're just so disturbing. Watching this working dad make the transformation into a creepy demonic clown is really quite fun though. Well acted and very nice from a technical standpoint, this is one of the most unique takes on clown lore I've seen. If you like your horror a little weird, then you might enjoy this one. Excellent bluray image to boot. Very recommended!
The initial premise of a costume that refuses to be removed is ripe with possibilities. Combining a "legend" of clowns that likens them to boogey men & a dark feeling of violent danger, CLOWN provides some uncomfortably creepy moments, pretty decent gore & a dark finale. I find these elements lacking in many modern horror stories & was quite pleased to find them here in this decaying demon suit of a movie.
If you're looking for a good horror movie...look no further! This one is about a Dad that puts on a clown costume for his kid's birthday party! But then he can't get it off and it becomes a part of him in an evil way! Rated R for language and graphic violence! It kept my interest throughout and thought it was original. Anyway, worth a watch if you can find it.
