Can't sleep, clowns will eat me

Returning to the director’s chair this year is Eli Roth, with his cannibal horror The Green Inferno, which premiered at TIFF (our review) and will hit theaters this fall. As to be expected, it won’t be the only feature Roth’s involved with this year, having built up an extensive producing slate. Today brings our first look at his latest, which should drill right into the fears of many viewers.

Based a fake trailer, we got word a little over a year ago that Roth was putting together a feature version of Clown, and now the trailer for the real film has landed. Directed by Jon Watts, the film stars Andy Powers as a father who puts on a clown costume for his son’s birthday, but a curse means he can’t take it off and, well, things go downhill from there. Also starring Laura Allen and Peter Stormare, it looks to contain some fairly haunting imagery and one can check it out below.

Clown doesn’t have a release date yet, but don’t be surprised to see it at a festival such as SXSW or Fantastic Fest in the coming year.

The trailer was with the article, but has since been removed. Creepy post?

I was actually just thinking about this the other day and was wondering how it was coming along and if it was actually going to come out.

Ugh this movie! Such a great buildup but then that ending...
forgethissmile 11th-Jan-2014 03:08 pm (UTC)
OMG, don't even get me started. Especially since the book taps into this crazy mystical ~entity that was around before God~ stuff.

But then again, there's a lot of stuff I'm glad never made it to the movie from the book. And they could've rewritten the ending as well, just so long as it was a fucking decent ending.

when i was around 6 one of my friends from church had a birthday party and her mom hired a clown and my friend was TERRIFIED. but my friends mom had already paid the clown so she didnt wanna waste money and basically my friend was hiding in a corner screaming and crying for the entire party while the clown played with the other kids. poor girl.

i think it's cool that those filmmakers got that viewed by the right person and their project is now a dream come true. very very cool!
vehiclesshockme 11th-Jan-2014 08:50 am (UTC)
This is the original fake trailer they made back in 2010.

peggybundy 11th-Jan-2014 08:59 am (UTC)

false_hate 11th-Jan-2014 05:50 pm (UTC)
I remember when this was posted, it's cool to see that it was actually completed.
freemywilly 11th-Jan-2014 08:54 am (UTC)
fuck clowns and their oversized shoes and gaudy ass makeup and wigs.

I found out recently that clown schools actually exist

let that sink in
zyuranger 11th-Jan-2014 08:56 am (UTC)

milkradio 11th-Jan-2014 09:08 am (UTC)

devolute 11th-Jan-2014 09:44 am (UTC)
one time when i was a kid i went to a mexican restaurant with a clown and my dad was trying to joke with the clown like "oh do you have to buy special shoes?" and "where do you go to school for that?" and stuff (like to make me and my brother laugh) and the clown replied DEAD SERIOUS to every question and we learned all about clown school requirements and degrees and how to mail order clown shoes.

my mom was laughing so hard
faunyoudork 11th-Jan-2014 09:52 am (UTC)

chantonii 11th-Jan-2014 11:41 am (UTC)
I would go to clown school just to learn how to make balloon animals. Or I could look up a how-to on youtube. Hmmm...
makahakat 11th-Jan-2014 12:02 pm (UTC)
yo clowns are no joke (pardon the pun) theres apparently like an official registry for their face makeup where everyoens specific designs are listed and youre not allowed to make your face makeup be like any of theirs, it has to be distinct

idk what happens if you copy. i assume the clowns come after you.
maria1221 11th-Jan-2014 02:00 pm (UTC)
My aunt is a clown, she's also a Republican, take that as you will. ..

zyuranger 11th-Jan-2014 08:55 am (UTC)
Oh, I need some good (new) horror. I've mostly been so disappointed lately.
williammiller 11th-Jan-2014 08:56 am (UTC)
I was scared of clowns when I was younger. I remember being at birthday party and a clown came out. I hid until the kitchen table and the kids parents had to call my parents to pick me up. Then a couple of years later, my dad and I were waiting in line at a haunted house. I felt a tap on my shoulder, I turned around and someone in a clown mask was literally inches away from my face. I screamed bloody murder and that was the end of that.
boundarybreaks 11th-Jan-2014 09:00 am (UTC)
i went to a haunted house and a fucking deranged clown with a chainsaw literally cut through a chain link fence and chased me down. i was like 12 or 13 and nearly shit my pants. i tackled an old lady and then used her elderly husband as a shield. i didn't know these people either.

justrachna 11th-Jan-2014 02:53 pm (UTC)

Clowns never bothered me before, but they do now.
vehiclesshockme 11th-Jan-2014 09:21 am (UTC)
Both my evil stepsister and my cousin are really terrified of clowns. Like hyperventilate fall into the fetal position and cry fear of clowns. When I asked them why my stepsister said she just doesn't understand why someone would want to have a job that makes people happy and therefore they must be evil (wtf Brittany?) where as my cousin's fear stems from Gacy.

sfarfallio 11th-Jan-2014 09:26 am (UTC)
i was never scared of clowns until i read about jwg jr. ):
stellar_kar 11th-Jan-2014 09:35 am (UTC)
you have an evil stepsister? Or is that just what you jokingly refer to her as?
kate_mct 11th-Jan-2014 09:36 am (UTC)
Gacy I can get, but your stepsister's reasons are...WTF. I've heard psychologist say people fear clowns because the makeup hides their faces, or something like that.
igbygrl 11th-Jan-2014 01:45 pm (UTC)
Lol your step sister seems like a character. You should ask her if it's just clowns or does her reasoning to not understanding why people have some jobs to make people happy, spans to other professions too.
