He’s just getting started.
The Line Film Co. and Head Trauma Productions have officially released a batch of stills and a new synopsis for their upcoming horror film Gags, which is based on the hit short from last year whose marketing stunt went viral and kickstarted the evil clown trend of 2016.
“A small city in Wisconsin is terrorized by a mysterious clown who roams the streets late at night with nothing more than a handful of black balloons. The local news stations scramble to break the story on who he is and what he wants while a group high schoolers see the clown’s arrival as an excuse to create a little trouble themselves. The police try to maintain order in a city that has gone clown crazy and a conservative podcast host vows to put a stop to the clown known as Gags while broadcasting his “clown hunt” on social media for the world to see.”
Gags stars Lauren Ashley Carter (Jug Face, Darling), Tracy Perez (The Strain, East Los High), Aaron Christensen (Dead Weight) and Evan Gamble (American Sniper, The Vampire Diaries). It was co-written by Adam Krause and John Pata and directed by Adam Krause.
The film is in the final stages of post-production and nearing a festival run. For more information on Gags, visit the film’s official website at gagsfilm.com or follow along via Facebook (facebook.com/gagstheclown).
