Marc Evan Jackson,
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.Written by
Circus of the Dead..wow!
We have seen killer clowns before but not like these guys,..you do not want to be going to their circus.
Horror these days can be so generic and has to be about credibility for many so this movie is very real in style..the thought that people like these guys could exist is the real horror..no real reason for them to be killing and torturing people just for the fact they enjoy it and it certain cases get off on it..thats real nasty horror.
All the cast involved were good to great..Bill Oberst Jr as Papa Corn is truly mesmerising and can easily be said to be one the most disturbing killers on screen in recent years..you will not forget him in a hurry.
What i liked was that the other players even tho not as crazy still had their own personalities and sick nature..Noodledome the Clown just made me laugh with his constant giggle and Mister Blister was so laid back and didnt give a crap made me like him even tho he was an awful person.
Parrish Randall was just fantastic as the poor guy they abduct and put through hell..you really felt for the guy.
Billy Pon has created an indie classic here and would love to see this get more widespread..I saw this around the same time as Rob Zombie's 31 and i thought this was way way better than that !
So if you want to see something crazy, disturbing and yet still enjoyable check it out..will stick in the mind for a very long time
