It’s hard to believe that we’re still talking about the Eli Roth-produced Clown, a film that was conceived thanks to a fake trailer that Jon Watts and Christopher D. Ford made five years ago. Not only that, but Clown has been done and finished for a few years now, so it’s kind of a baffling that we have yet to see a release here in the States, especially when you factor in all the positive buzz surrounding it.
But here we are with no release and yet another trailer to tease horror fans with something they cannot watch… yet. Still, this is our best look at the film, exposing the terrifying notion of being trapped in a haunted clown suit. Watch the new trailer below!
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.
Directed by John Watts, Clown stars Andy Powers, Peter Stormare, Laura Allen and Elizabeth Whitmere. The film is out now in the UK with a release date in the States yet to be announced. Hang in there, folks.
