Most of the violence is cartoonish but still some of the film is realistically violent.

A man grabs a pole connected to a circus tent and is electrocuted briefly.

A police officer is killed and used like a dummy. He has blood lining his mouth and bloody thumbprints on his cheeks and when the clown removes his had from his back it is covered in blood which he shakes off.

The small clown punches a biker's head off and it flies into the trashcan, showing the gore from the neck.

A man driving a car is pushed to the side of the road and his car crashes at the bottom of a cliff.

A group of people are eaten by a shadow puppet T-rex.

The clowns trap people in "cotton candy" cocoons, which melt the people inside to a bloody liquid. A few of the faces are seen when the cocoons are examined. Later in the movie, a clown drinks from one of them with a silly straw.

The clowns throw a bunch of pies at a security guard, and he crumbles to the floor steaming. When the main characters stumble upon the pile of pies, they see a skeleton arm sticking out indicating that the pies were acidic.

A few clowns are disturbing.

A man is choked by a trick glove.

When the clowns die they explode into fireworks.

Many are shot by ray guns that mummify then in cotton candy.

Some explosions.

A college student is seen carrying a bag of beer and drinking a can of it.

Two college students have a bottle of wine with them.

A police officer pours a shot and downs it.


The faces of the dead people in the cotton candy cocoons are slightly graphic.

A scene involving a little girl being lured out to a clown, holding a hammer behind his back, is a bit tense, but she ends up being grabbed by her mother before leaving.

The Clowns are realistically creepy and laugh this horrific metallic laugh. Some kids may be creeped out and any one with a fear of clowns will be terrified.
