The province of Messiah was once rich and prosperous in agricultural land. At some point in time, clowns and mimes rolled in, bringing the joy and wonder of a circus big top. Upon the last evening, while everyone watched, a small group of clowns stormed and looted the province of Messiah. The clowns enjoyed themselves so much that they never left. What followed was the organization of the clowns and mimes. They offered protection to Messiah's citizens in exchange for money. The mimes began to gather amongst themselves. They felt oppressed, so they rebelled. This was the beginning of Messian War between the clowns and the mimes. This war has raged for decades and there seems to be no end in sight. Now a man named Chinaco whose parents were victims of the ruthless clown boss, Bastard the Clown, must become what he hates most. In order to avenge the death of his parents -- and possibly end the brutal war between the mimes and the clowns -- He must become... CHINGASO THE CLOWN Written by E. Matar

Horrible and amazing at the same time
20 September 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

WARNING: Anyone suffering from "Coulrophobia" is STRONGLY cautioned against watching this film at all costs!! Coulrophobia is the fear of clowns and this film will not only bother those who hate clowns but might just create this fear in the viewers--it is that intense and violent.

OTHER WARNING: This film should never be seen by kids. Although it is pretty cool, the film is amazingly violent for a short film plus the language is intense, to say the least! I must point out that I am not a particular fan of violent films and the intensity of this in CHINGASO THE CLOWN was great. However, at the same time, this short film had an intensity and cinematic quality about it that was simply amazing and I really wish I could see it on the big screen. Additionally, the music is intense and had my speakers pounding. It simply was top-notch all the way.

I assume this short is meant as a "pitch film". In other words, the very talented director hopes it will spur on Hollywood big-wigs to contribute funding to the project which would seem to be a full-length version of CHINGASO. At is was, the film is more of a teaser than a short film. An AMAZING and HEART-POUNDING teaser, at that!!
