Eli Roth’s ‘Clown’ Hitting Theaters This June!




I guess we learned to avoid hitting the panic button so quickly…

A year after releasing in the UK, there was no sign of Jon Watts’ Clown, produced by Eli Roth. Then, all of a sudden, Anchor Bay had it listed for release on VOD this month. When the day came and went, we hit the panic button.

Roth quickly told us that discussions were taking place for a June release, which was great news considering this is a really fun movie (here’s my review).

Now, it’s been officially announced that Dimension will release Clown in limited theaters on June 17th!

Andy Powers, Laura Allen, Peter Stormare and Elizabeth Whitmere star in the pic about a man who puts on an old clown costume, only to transform into a demon clown that eats children.

“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 agonizing 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.”
