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 »
As far as clown slasher go, I rarely see any true effort put into them - especially these days. "Clown" is actually a pretty refreshing entry in the genre - being clearly of modest budget, yet still managing to come across as a professional looking flick with an unusually likable cast of characters, a reasonably memorable villain! There's also a few decent and relatively gory deaths, cleverly themed after traditional clown tricks.
The gore level in this movie is extremely high. Every kill is based upon a trick that a clown but all with the intention of making your skin crawl. It won't be to every one's taste, as limbs are literally ripped from bodies, heads kicked of.
think that most will enjoy this movie knowing ahead of time that it's a gory slasher.
