Marina Antunes [Celluloid 01.10.14] horror

I haven't seen an effective killer clown movie since the 1990 TV miniseries based on Stephen King's It and now it looks like we'll finally get a worthy killer clown follow-up.

In 2010, a group of talented artists put together a pretty great looking trailer for a fake movie directed by the very real Eli Roth titled Clown. Somewhere along the line Roth saw the trailer, was impressed by it and approached the filmmakers to make the movie for real with Roth as producer. Fast forward to 2014 and here we have it, the real trailer for director Jon Watts' Clown.

The movie, which stars Andy Powers, Peter Stormare, Laura Allen and Elizabeth Whitmere follows a father who dawns a clown suit for his son's birthday party only to discover that the suit is cursed and turns the wearer into a serial killer.

It's a pretty great atmospheric trailer with a very creepy clown. I think the Insane Clown Posse would approve. No word yet on when Clown will be released or even if it will get a theatrical release but it's expected the movie will see the light of day this year. I sure hope so because it looks pretty great.

The original fake trailer is also posted below.
