I love killer clown movies. I love mysteries. A murder mystery about a killer clown....HELL YEAH! To be honest. I liked this film. I really enjoyed it. The movie had a lot going for it. Some well known faces, a downright scary killer, some great visuals. A good amount of humour and overall a fun time was had.
Cameron Dye: was very good as the protagonists boyfriend, He gave an enjoyable performance and I liked him onscreen.
Lynn Danielson: I don't know really. There were moments when her dialogue felt embarrasingly forced and OTT.
Karen Black: Black doesn't really need to do much here but what she does is certainly not bad.
Tracey Walter: The guy came across hilarious as the smart alec main cop of the film. His sarcasm was a hoot.
As for the film being scary or gory the version I saw was certainly not gory apart from one scene but as far as scary goes it depends on how scared of clowns you are. The site of a clown driving slowly after you at night time may freak you out if you suffer from coulrophobia
The mystery of who was behind the clown mask was good. Though I have read reviews which claim the identity of the killer is very obvious I don't know. If I hadnt had the film spoiled for me before I saw it I am not sure if I would have correctly guessed the culprit. Bobo was cool. He had a creepy deep voice and I LOVED his clown mask! (wish I had one like that) it was just very unnerving. The copy I own is obviously heavily cut because there is only one sex scene. (Very steamy I must add)
Be warned! In no way is this film original. In fact it is very cliched and follows some obvious nods to other films (Black Christmas, Halloween.
The film does what it is supposed to. Entertains you for the time its on.
