User Reviews

 
Clowntergeist: More Ronald McDonald than Pennywise
22 October 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Cashing in on the renewed popularity of killer clowns Clowntergeist tells the story of a demonic clown who kindly provides you with a red (Shocker) balloon with the date/time he's going to kill you on.

No poltergeists here, just a really dreadful clown (Not even the one on the poster) who grunts like an animal and has variable supernatural rules.

The cast are quite competent but don't have much to work with and the finale twist is laughable. Would have worked better as a horror comedy.

Want a decent clown horror? Watch Clown House (1989)

The Good:

Predictable but decent opening "Twist"

Some quite original ideas

The Bad:

Crap antagonist

Poor twist

Lore makes little sense/isn't explained

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

The redneck weapon of choice is the crossbow
