Storyline

A loser with a crummy apartment, an odious mother, and a job that isn't taking him anywhere (kid's clown), gets a new idea. He decides that he's going to be a clown for bachelor parties. He will dress up like a woman clown and play a joke on the groom. After that the real stripper will come out and everyone will have a good laugh. He goes to his first job (changing his clown name from Flappy to Vulgar). When he opens the door he is knocked cold. What follows is a story of violation, fame, blackmail, and revenge.

User Reviews

Amazingly odd
10 May 2003 | by HarlequinAngelSee all my reviews

When I first saw this movie I thought the same as many others, "oh wow it's View Askew it has to be funny!" Boy was I wrong... The beginning of the movie was amusing but it quickly turned dark and twisted. The plot line was intriguing and unique. The actors were wonderful, they portrayed their characters so well. No one else could have played Flappy the Clown, he was so realistic ^_^. The emotion in this movie was so raw and deep, you wanted to reach out and kill some of the characters. It was interesting and it held your attention the whole time, I rather enjoyed it, beyond the scariness. Very well done, the atmosphere, the characters, the plot line, all air tight and fantastic.
