October 26 – Halloween Countdown

Someday there will be a moratorium on killer clowns. Pennywise scoffs at you inferior imitators, Twisty and company. But also- guys, aren’t we vilifying men and women who just want to entertain? Innocent Clowns could be harmed by the violent backlash to movies like this! Then they cry a single greasepaint tear on the side of the road…

Is there anything less scary than watching someone frantically try to use a remote control?

I guess clowns can be creepy, or so pop-culture keeps telling me. The time does come when we sigh and say: “Another killer clown?”. Also if someone put a giant fucking VHS tape in one of my kid’s candy bags, they’d be like: “What the hell is this? Dad, this creep just gave us a movie!” and there’d be no mystery.

And then she lets the kids WATCH IT? Geez, lady.

Not my cuppa tea, though the trailer is pretty well put-together, the inter-cutting of the horror imagery with the mom watching the tape is smart- and hey, points for being set on Halloween night!

  1. Dammit Clown, no one thought you were funny so now you’re trying to be all creepy? Must be puberty. He’ll probably turn into a party animal next year, then get all religious when he’s older..
