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.

Disappointed... Maybe my expectations were to high. Not scary and mostly boring.
14 September 2019 | by Carlos_1984See all my reviews

I was really looking forward to watch this movie. Clown sightings always intrigued me and I was really hopping this movie could make me feel uneasy and creeped out. Unfortunately it fails miserably in everything a scary movie should acomplish. I had the impression that the movie was 2h30 long since I was really bored. No creepy scenes, no eerie atmosphere, no nothing. Even the parts that were supposed to be scary are so lame.

And what the hell was that ending?? If you're looking for answers about the clown identity or why does he just stands there watching people... well, prepare yourself to a "no answers" ending. Seems like they created the story, but as they could not explain it themselves, they just made that uninspired ending.

I really think hard before doing a bad review because even if the movie is bad, it has some amount of effort by the crew and actors. But then again... I didn't feel that they even bothered to write a plot that makes sense. Sorry, but I cannot recommend this movie to anyone, unless I want that person to be bored for 1h30m...
