A group of young professionals decides to play a practical joke on one of their ex-girlfriends who married a rich man who is about to close a major real estate deal. They plan to kidnap her and mess up the deal. Unfortunately, the joke becomes deadly serious. Written by
A horror movie from Canada? What could they possibly fear up there? That hockey gets outlawed? That beer gets outlawed? Apparently, those Hosea's fear someone dressing up as a clown and going on a killing spree. And the movie about it, "The Clown Murders" is almost a zero. Only the presence of John Candy saves it, and that's only minimally. Just what is the guy who had his hand between two "pillows" in "Planes, Trains & Automobiles" doing in this kind of a movie? So, I wasted two bucks on this stinker. At least now I can tell people how bad it was. If you want a horror movie relating to clowns, then "Killer Klowns from Outer Space" and "It" are truly cinematic gems. And if you want a horror movie from Canada, then "The Brain" is pretty cool. But quite literally, the only excuse for blowing your money on "The Clown Murders" would be to see John Candy in an early role.
