The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz : UK Trailer for CLOWN is Unintentionally Hilarious.

Honey Buzz : UK Trailer for CLOWN is Unintentionally Hilarious.

Film is a cyclical thing, popularity of sub genres comes and goes. Sometimes it starts out as a slow burn and horror fans can decide for themselves if they're into it... and sometimes it's a motherfucking avalanche of sledgehammer attacks that force us to think that we might actually be ok with it. Apparently, it's time for another one of those dreaded shifts. The newest sledgehammer? CLOWN HORROR. 

Clown joins a growing list of (recent) clown focused horror projects including Rob Zombie's clown porn 31, Twisty the Clown from American Horror Story, the upcoming IT remake, Judy...

I know there are a section of people with a LEGITIMATE fear of clowns, and another subsection who think they're fucking rad. I'm not down with the clown. I think they're fucking stupid. 

SO, imagine my glee when a "long awaited" trailer for CLOWN, a film produced by "The Master of Terror" (not my quote) Eli Roth and directed by Jon Watts and starring my darling Peter Stormare... Peter, you deserve better.

The story (edited for my amusement/truthiness): On the day of his son's birthday party, a loving father discovers that no one actually booked a clown (OMG NO) and before the kid has a shit fit, he somehow finds a clown suit in the basement... As you do, he dons the mysterious costume and plays the part of the clown for the party. The downside? The suit is part of an evil curse that turns its wearer into a killer... a killer clown. 

If you don't laugh your way through the trailer at the unintentional comedy contained therein, please let me know. 

Also, the trailer gives a nice skim through the ENTIRE film from beginning to end, including the creature reveal. So... there's that.

Clown is availabe in the UK as of March 2nd, but no US release date has been announced.
