It was announced a few weeks ago that executive producer, Tommy Vlahopoulos of Tommy V Films, along with executive producer Tom Sulkowski, had acquired the rights to the psychological thriller film Behind the Sightings, which is based on 112 hours of found footage of clown sightings, recorded in 2016.
Directed by Tony Cadwell, the story follows Todd and Jessica Smith, two filmmakers from Raleigh in North Carolina, who set out to produce a documentary exploring the highly publicized, creepy clown sighting epidemic, which was investigated by local law enforcement. As the young married couple venture into Peachtree Way, Nash County, in search of clowns, what they found was far from funny.
Perfectly timed with this year’s IT remake, we now have the first trailer for Behind the Sightings that finds two filmmakers surrounded by killer clowns.
“Clowns have traditionally been associated with slapstick style performance, comedy or mime, but there has always been a dark side to a clown,” said Tommy Vlahopoulos. “This is not fake news, Behind the Sightings is centered around the terrifying clown sightings that shook the world last year, and an eager couple swept up in all the phenomenon. This is a very newsworthy subject, especially with all the continuous clown sightings.”
The Behind the Sightings feature film is set to be released later this year.
