UK ‘Clown’ Trailer Looks Tremendously Fun! Produced By Eli Roth!

These are the moment I celebrate and appreciate horror auteur Eli Roth, who has directed a slew of successful genre film including Cabin Fever, Hostel and The Green Inferno. Using his name as power, he’s helped independent filmmakers achieve their dream, no matter how whacky of a vision they may have.

Proof is in Clown, stemmed from a faux trailer by Jon Watts about a man who puts on an old clown costume, only to transform into a demon clown that eats children.

Premiering at FrightFest Glasgow 2015 and coming to DVD & Blu-ray in the UK March 2, 2015, we now have a new international trailer that boasts tons of new footage that really puts the genre on its head. Clown looks to carry heavy homage to It, American Werewolf In London and even various vampire films. It’s a goofy premise that takes itself dead serious, which makes it not only suspenseful but also fun.

While this isn’t some Hollywood wide release, I expect Clown to be even more entertaining than Stitches.

“It’s Jack’s 10th birthday, but the clown has cancelled. His dad, Kent, finds an old clown suit in the attic and saves the party. But after the party is over, Kent has a problem… the suit won’t come off. What starts as a joke quickly turns into a hellish nightmare. Kent can feel himself changing, and his desperate attempts to free himself just leave him in agonising pain.

As the suit takes hold of his body, Kent slowly endures a brutal transformation. As he changes, an uncontrollable hunger begins to consume him, an overwhelming and insatiable hunger… for children.”

Peter Stormare, Laura Allen, Christian DiStefano, Elizabeth Whitmere, Matthew Stefiuk, and Andy Powers star.

    I’ve wanted to see this so bad since the first trailer came out like a year ago. What’s with Dimension Films? The Weinsteins waste so much money producing films, sitting them on a shelf, and then dumping them into VOD obscurity. Strange business.

    Green inferno is successful? An unreleased, shelved film? Um okay.

    • a very British hamster

      Mostly great reviews out of festivals! I’d say that makes it some what successful!

      Also, it wasn’t completely shelved, I believe it’s slated to be released this year sometime! As there is even a spin off being made!

    I still say the clown costume should look more “clown” like still this was a good trailer, also shows how kids get killed which you haven’t seen in awhile since movies like It, Sleepaway Camp and others.
