Directed by Damien Leone
This movie was awesome! I loved so much about it. First and foremost, I have to give credit to the filmmaking staff. This movie was brilliant. I thought the acting was good and the gore was great. The film even had a couple spots that are surprising and jump worthy.
Art the Clown. This is our killer. What a performance!!! This guy, David Howard Thornton is superb in his portrayal of this demented killer clown. The mime effect he’s got going on and the disgusting yellow toothed smile coupled with the dead stare from his eyes truly just radiates an evil that glows ultimate creepiness.
The interesting thing about this film is that we don’t have the usual protagonist main character. Our victims, though some appearing to be main characters, are truly just that…victims. There is no real desire to kill any one person or a stalking type chase through town. These people just ended up at the wrong place at the wrong time and now, Art the Clown is ready to have some fun.
The kills are excellent with enough blood and gore to satisfy any horror fan. Riddled with suspense and sarcasm, this movie was truly so easy to watch. I happen to think that all clowns look like something out of a horror film but, this clown has to be in my top three of all-time favorite murdering clowns.
If you have the chance, I highly recommend picking this up. I got it at the Redbox and I am definitely going to be buying my own copy, I liked it that much. I only wish there had been more gore. But, I think I always feel that way. I do think it was a good modern homage to the classic slasher flicks we’ve all come to know and love. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
