Above what many of this ilk do

This is a small B horror flick akin to the Wishmaster films. But the smaller scale of this film allows for just the creepiness of a clown demon has some effect, as opposed to trying for big scares and special effects. Don't expect big things from this film, including scares. But an interesting concept that was effectively made with just enough creep factor.
