A small city in Wisconsin is terrorized by a mysterious clown who roams the streets late at night with nothing more than a handful of black balloons. The local news stations scramble to break the story on who he is and what he wants while a group high schoolers see the clown's arrival as an excuse to create a little trouble themselves. The police try to maintain order in a city that has gone clown crazy and a conservative podcast host vows to put a stop to the clown known as Gags while broadcasting his "clown hunt" on social media for the world to see.

The three production hard drives were all named after known clowns: Pennywise, Bozo, and Pogo. During post-production, one more was added: Krusty. See more »


It's kind of a plot hole to make a "found footage" film without stating who found and edited the footage. See more »

Its worth it for a couple truly shining moments
9 February 2020 | by ncolenSee all my reviews

I want to start with some praise for gags. For what seems like a no budget horror passion project/corman esq market share grab, probably shot and assembled rather hastily, this film has some truly shining moments of inventiveness that give some really great creepy imagery (particularly an amazing shot involving a cloud of talc and a man standing like carpenters shape overwhelming the frame with mennace). Had this script had a few more eyes to help streamline and focus the narrative and iron out the kinks in the dialogue (puke and rally?...dude its "boot and rally" unless they are supposed to be fully Canadians and not Americans....) that throw otherwise good scenes a challenge for the performers to try to push through. Honestly its a fun watch if you like schlocky horror but it has moments of potential greatness and i imagine this director and his team have some really awesome pictures in them!
