[Reviews by cornholio and Maynard.]
Kent (Andy Powers) and his wife Meg (Laura Allen) have organized a clown for their son’s birthday party. But that clown cancels and they are left in quite a bind. Real estate agent Kent finds a clown costume in one of the houses he is supposed to sell and decides to put it on to make his son happy, which works like a charm. But when he tries to take it off again, he is unable to do so. The costumes seems to be doing something to him.
Clowns is built on a nice idea and excellent make-up, but storywise it did start to drag. Maybe if clowns were scarier for me, I would have been more into the film. But as is, I thought it was rather average and it left me quite cold.
