A little boy's birthday party gets ruined when his entertainment (clown) cancels. His father finds a clown suit and becomes the new entertainment but something is weird about it, there is an evil curse and it won't come off. He specializes in eating little kids... everything after that goes down hill.
Movie posters featuring the clown were censored in Italy for being "too scary". See more »
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 »
Very few people know the true origin of what we call "the clown". I can show you here.

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!
