If yesterday we talked about It Chapter Two (2019), now it’s the time for Clownado, another movie where the supernatural clowns are not into delivering laughs of joy but screams of terror. It has been founded via perking platform Indiegogo, with a claiming from the filmmakers to be doing “an original, fresh and exciting Horror film, using all practical special makeup effects, old-school visual effects and a Film Noir style. Something that audiences have not seen before, but that is also nostalgic and familiar”. So let’s talk more about it.
Clownado has been written and directed by Todd Sheets, a horror lover filmmaker involved since the mid-1980s in uncountable productions as writer, director, producer, editor, cameraman, makeup department, special effects creator, set decorator and any other task in the process of making feature films you can think of. His are little underground pieces like Bonehill Road (2017), Dreaming Purple Neon (2016), House of Forbidden Secrets (2013), Fear of the Dark (2005) and segments in Grindsploitation (2016) and its sequel Grindsploitation 2: The Lost Reels (2016). Clownado (2018) is starred by horror b-movies star Linnea Quigley, known for being part of the cast of unforgettable films like Graduation Day (1981), Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984), The Return of the Living Dead (1985) and Night of the Demons (1988). And with her, Eileen Dietz, Julie Anne Prescott, Dilynn Fawn Harvey, Millie Milan, Joel D. Wynkoop, Jeanne Silver, Antwoine Steele and Jenius McGee also star.
In the movie, cursed demonic circus clowns set out on a vengeful massacre using tornadoes. A stripper, Elvis impersonator, truck driver, teen runaway, and a dude get caught in the supernatural battle between femme fatal and the boss clown from hell. Clownado, as described by the creators, is having “the vibe of classic horror movies we love. Think Evil Dead (1981), Dead Alive (1992), Bad Taste (1987) and Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) if Lucio Fulci was directing”, is a gory horror science fiction experience where crazed killer clowns take a rampage from hell out for revenge and only blood can quench their savage desire for destruction.
A couple of days ago, the people from Bloody Disgusting published on their official YouTube channel a new trailer for the movie stating it is set to come out this summer. You can watch it here:
