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.
In the Arcade scene later in the film, various types of typical coin operated games are shown. One quick shot shows an unknown game with a Dinosaur that makes a certain sound effect before cutting away to the next shot. This sound effect is that of one of the various creatures in the 1993 Video Game "DOOM". Most notably the "Pinky Demons". 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.

HOLY CRAP!!!! BETTER HIDE THE KIDS!!!! I watched this movie not expecting much given the title. Boy my wife and I were in for a Surprise!!! This was the best Horror movie I have seen in a while. This movie went well beyond our expectations.
This was a "Gutwrenching" wild ride of a true horror.
I still cannot believe the carnage done to those sweet innocent kids!!! I also found the story regarding the "origin" of "The Clown" an interesting touch.
The title although appropriate weakened my expectations a bit, so perhaps they should have used a better title.
This movie would have given me nightmares forever if I had seen it as a kid!!!!! The acting was more than top notch, in that their reactions to the horror before them was believable on so many levels Well done!
