After Kate's friend Monica invites her to help clean up an old opera house where her mother was killed in a play she starred in, she is skeptical. But when the doors suddenly get locked from the outside, she has good reason to be. She starts having visions of her dead mother getting killed down in the basement and everyone starts to see a mysterious clown. When people start dying they decide that they have to get out quick. When the clock hits twelve, someone wants her to be in the final scene with them. Written by Kyle <Kyleshivers@aol.com>

The average youth slasher
25 September 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I saw the cover of the video of "The Clown at Midnight", I decided to give myself a chance to look at the film. The plot has a little similarity to what the old-fashioned horror slashers had: revenge, twisted obsession, sexual encounters, and a shocking conclusion. Margot Kidder portrays a college professor who turns up missing without a trace and this leaves the students who are also trying out for a show. The young cast stars James Duvall, Tatyana Ali (who portrayed Will Smith's cousin on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air) as one of the students who are trapped trying fight off a psychopath dressed up as a clown. Sit tight and enjoy the film, cause I don't wanna give it all away.
