Jon Watts’ Clown is the #1 horror flick on ITunes. Somewhere, producer Eli Roth is smiling wide, especially after the multi-year hiatus the film saw between production wrapping and actually landing on the American market. The wait (which all but hurt, for the record), as we’re seeing, payed dividends.
The flick, which is mighty unforgiving and damn gratifying (you can read our review right here), stars Andy Powers (In Her Shoes), Laura Allen (From Within), Peter Stormare (Fargo), Christian Distefano (Creative Galaxy), Chuck Shamata (The Day After Tomorrow) and Elizabeth Whitmere (The Watch).
In addition to directing, Jon Watts co-wrote the script along with frequent collaborator Christopher Ford.
Synopsis: CLOWN is a story of a loving father who dons a clown outfit and makeup to perform at his son’s sixth birthday, only to later discover that the costume – red nose and wig included– will not come off and his own personality changes in a horrific fashion. To break the curse of the evil outfit, the father must make grim choices with his own family facing danger.
