Director Jon Watts did a horror film called Clown. Movie finished long ago, but it’s been stuck on a shelf for a long time, and now The Weinstein Company is giving it a release this summer.
It is a twisted version of the family-friendly Christmas movie The Santa Clause: a father rocks a clown costume to celebrate his kid’s birthday, but the costume won’t come off and he slowly realizes it’s cursed and altering his personality in terrifying ways.
CLOWN is a story of a loving father who dons a clown outfit and makeup to perform at his son’s sixth birthday, only to later discover that the costume – red nose and wig included– will not come off and his own personality changes in a horrific fashion. To break the curse of the evil outfit, the father must make grim choices with his own family facing danger.
Clown hits theaters on June 17, 2016. Check out the trailer below.
