Just before Halloween, three kid brothers who are alone in a big house are menaced by three escaped mental patients who have murdered some traveling circus clowns and taken their identities. Written by
When I watched this I knew about the actions of the director but chose to not let it spoil the film for me. I'm glad I did because this is a very effective and creepy film. There are plenty of tense moments and the clowns are scary. There is also some great camera-work on display, and clever shots of the clowns that are in sync with the music. It's a while since I watched Clownhouse so I can't say much more, but from what I remember it was a very creepy horror film and one I will watch again one day.
Try not to let the actions of the director put you off, Clownhouse is a creepy little horror flick and succeeds in its intent.
