Goofs

When Kent is driving with Karlsson (at about 27 minutes), he starts turning into the demon, and his feet break through the front of his shoes. In the next scene, when Kent gets out of the car (after it crashes) and opens the back door to take Karlsson out, there's a quick shot of his shoes and they're intact. See more »

Quotes

Karlsson: Very few people know the true origin of what we call "the clown". I can show you here.
[shows him an old book of illustrations depicting the ancient mythical creature known as the "Cloyne"]
Karlsson: It lived up in the mountains with a skin white as snow and the red nose blistered by the cold. It lured children out of the villages into its cave. Five children. One child for every month of winter. Over the centuries, the legend of the Cloyne was forgotten. He became the clown. His white face and red nose ...

Remarkable cheesy fun!
1 March 2015 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I love Clown! A complete surprise for me, came out of nowhere, when I was the poster I was expecting nothing but a class C kind of horror, but boy was I wrong!

What makes it so much fun? The transformation itself is simple and brilliant! They take their time but they make sure to always keep you interested, waiting to see what happens next, how things will evolve and so on. Clown is a natural movie, they didn't bother into too much gore, nor nudity, but instead they actually focused on the story. And I have to say, it was a good one, effective and sometimes haunting!

It is a sure thing that most horror fans out there will dig this on for sure. Without saying too much about it, if you liked movies like Rare exports or Sint, this one you'll enjoy even more because in my opinion, it is better! Clown, simple and effective!

Cheers!
