Storyline

Family man Don's visit to an old, run down Big Top circus and chance encounter with a nihilistic group of clowns leaves him fighting for his life and the lives of those he loves. As Don becomes drawn deeper into lead clown Papa Corn's games, he comes closer to the edge of reason and sanity. Armed with guns, knives and a '68 Camaro, the clowns lead Don on an all night crime spree through oil soaked West Texas. Papa Corn's wild ride brings blood, gore and mayhem to all he encounters.

Lived up to expectations
4 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love clown horror! I had been following this movie on Facebook for awhile waiting for it to come out. Was excited for it and usually when that happens I end up being disappointed. Not this time! I got to see a screening of it at Scares That Care horror convention and it was glorious! Fun at times, creepy at times, and always at the right times! All the actors playing the clowns were great but yes Papa Corn (Bill Oberst Jr) steals the show. Daring, creepy and disturbingly enough rather sexy, his portrayal of the clown king was magnificent.

This is the second Billy Pon movie I've seen. Bought Doll-Boy while waiting for COTD to come out. I have a feeling his name is going to get quite big in horror circles! I do hope the big studios don't snatch him up, there's just something about indy movies that fits him. I want him to always have creative control over his stuff.

I can not wait for this to get a DVD release. I want it in my collection now!
