Has the recent spate of evil clown movies, from the Eli Roth-produced Clown to the Rob Zombie-directed 31, diminished the employment prospects of the many fine, upstanding, real-life red-nosed entertainers? Frankly, we have no idea. But we can say that a new clip from the upcoming horror film ClownTown does little to enhance the collective reputation of the giant shoes-wearing community.
Directed by Tom Nagel, ClownTown details the travails of friends who get stranded in a seemingly abandoned town and find themselves stalked by a gang of violent psychopaths dressed as clowns. The film stars Brian Nagel, Lauren Elise, Andrew Staton, Katie Keene, and Jeff Denton.
ClownTown opens in theaters Sept. 30 and will be available to watch on VOD and DVD on Oct. 4.
