When in peril, stupid people still do the dumbest things

That slogan goes for a lot of horror slashers, most of them are (slightly) guilty. But this story and the characters are beyond ridiculous. The opening scene is - unfortunately- the best part. A babysitter is at the Strode's residence while watching a TV news reporter named Weathers. Any horror fan can appreciate the nod to classics like "Halloween" and "Scream". The fun stops right there when the leading cast is introduced including a blond girl who is certainly no actress but only hired for her rack. You know you're in trouble when the last name of the director is also spotted several times in the cast and production crew.

Anyway, four friends wait in a spooky town for a total stranger to bring one of the girl's phone. They wait for hours even though they're already late for the concert and the fact that the town seems abandoned, which doesn't seem to bother them at all. When the killer clowns arrive they're saved by an old hermit who hides them and calmly starts making dinner. There are killer clowns out there but life goes on, right ?

The clowns aren't scary, just painted faces and not menacing or convincing because of the bad acting (even behind the painted faces that is..)

The end reveals that the local sheriff is involved but since he's the one who told them to go there in the beginning of this wretched tale, it's insulting that it's supposed to be a twist.

Some gore but hardly worth mentioning and even for fans of the genre (I'm one of them) it's a total letdown. Way too many bad films have been released the last 2 years and this is one of them.

Clowns deserve better

This movie is utter trash. Pure and simple.

I could go on about the atrocious acting, mediocre gore, run-of-the-mill baddies and so on and so forth but instead I'm gonna tell you this - stay away from this trash.

I do love myself a good clown horror - clowns have this mix of "always smiling, yet at the same time emotionless" type of thing. These clown all lack that. Some people will go for this flick because of the nudity which again - it is there, but in this movie you end up feeling like "tits? oh whatever". Unless you are a teenage boy you are going to roll your eyes and fast forward to the next scene. To avoid acting that is.

Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere.

Jon Watt's "Clown" is one option.

The tears of a clown.......

Whilst on their way to a concert, four friends get sidetracked and stranded in a seemingly abandoned town.

Whilst looking for help, they find themselves stalked and terrorised by a gang of violent clown dressed psychopaths, who will stop at nothing ensnaring them into their sinister blood thirsty games......

Clowns can be scary can't they?

Arguably the scariest of all clowns is Pennywise, as he is literally the stuff made of nightmares. Then the Killer Klowns, whilst not the scariest clowns to grace small screen, have gained notoriety because the film is just so much fun.

But then Sam Rockwell could argue that the awful Clownhouse is the scariest thing for him.......knowing its on his C.V.

This has all the right ingredients for a decent horror come stalk and slash, but the end result is just a boring film that tries to hard to be an amalgamation of the later Friday films and a Rob Zombie film.

So once the main narrative of the film commences (second act, always when one of the protagonists sees something overly bizarre), it's just so formulaic, and so lethargic, you are willing the clowns to walk just that little fast, kill the stupid kids and let the film just finish.

So we are 'treated' to a wealth of horror film tropes, killers walking slowly and always getting who they want, protagonists making silly decisions that have been made since the late seventies, and the old man, who comes out of nowhere, who has never been harmed and should have minded his own business.

It's pretty poor stuff,many horror fan would have seen this film dozens of times before, and not have let themselves get drawn in by the predictable decent DVD cover art.

But fair dues, every once in a while, there is a little gem amongst the dirge and the filth, and sadly this isn't one of them.

Borrowing from too many better horror films is always a mistake, because you remember just how good those were, whilst suffering this rubbish.

Don't bother.
