Storyline

On a warm weekend in June, a group of friends venture to the mountains for a weekend getaway. No parents, no professors, just pure unadulterated fun and games. Little do they know, they're not alone. Out in the wilderness, just a stone's throw away at the edge of the tree line, there is a dark presence waiting and watching the group. One of the main protagonists, Rachel is the first to realize that there is peril in the woods beyond the rickety old cabin, where they'll be sleeping. Josh (who wants nothing more than to have the nerve to approach Rachel and tell her how much he adores her) politely humors her and her worries of them never making it home again. The rest of the group however, laughs off her comments about the rustling in the bushes, the sounds of crazy laughter, and the shadows that keep moving around. Is she just crazy, or are they going to be picked off one by one? Written by Michelle Keating

Well it's certainly better than Hollywood
17 September 2007 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

I watched Clown at a screening at the Northwest Film Forum in Seattle. Being a fan of Robert Newman's work and also being a native of the area, I try to catch anything he's done, even though this is only his second feature. Clown can only be explained by watching it. It's nothing new, it's not perfect, and even their website says they don't use cheap scares to get a reaction, and they end up resorting to it. All in all I was very happy with the finished product. The cinematography was great, the script was pretty solid, and the overall funky, 70s vibe feel of the film made it even better. I won't lie, there is a few places of slip-shoddy editing, there is a scene with sunshine and the cutaway there is overcast. What I thoroughly enjoyed was that I didn't feel I was watching an indie flick where the Director is self-absorbed into making something different. It wasn't pretentious, it didn't try to go overboard with make-up effects. They used what they had in their budget to try and keep the realism intact. Gore hounds might shy away, but those who can follow a basic story and enjoy the great dialogue will enjoy this creepy little flick. I am waiting for the DVD release but as far as I know it's slated for October 2007.
