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.

Clown
26 August 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Despite being the source of many childhood fears, there's a surprising dearth of solid killer-clown movies (I can think of "It" and "Clownhouse," and that's about it). I was curious to see what a modern horror movie would do with the concept and came away satisfied with this little shocker, which uses the clown concept sparingly throughout and thankfully keeps clown-related humor to a minimum. Instead it concentrates on developing its central characters more than is usually expected in these films, as well as exploring the origin of clowning and how it pertains back to the film's story. There's a lot of exposition needed to further the plot but the filmmakers never lose track that the audience would rather be shown something instead of being told, so the film manages to establish and sustain a sense of dread and inevitability throughout. A surprisingly solid slasher that could easily become a franchise.
