“Clowns are scary” is a well-loved idea in horror. One man who isn’t scared, however, is producer Eli Roth. He saw a trailer for a fake film called Clown and helped develop it into a feature. The full trailer for that feature, also called Clown, is now out. A father (Andy Powers) puts on a clown suit for his son’s birthday, only to find the suit is cursed and he can’t get out of it. Directed by Jon Watts, Clown premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year and is still waiting for distribution. Check out the trailer below.
Thanks to The Film Stage for the heads up.
And here’s the original fake trailer that got the attention of Eli Roth, thanks in part to use of his name.
