Movie My Way: Clown
Clown is a horror film about a father who is forced to put on a mysterious clown suit found in a house that he is the real estate agent for in order to perform at his son’s birthday when their hired clown is a no show. Unbeknownst to him, this isn’t a suit at all but the ‘skin’ of a demon. I know the premise sounds ludicrous and trust me, it is. However, once you can get past the weird concept, it isn’t a half bad film. The evolution of our main character is pretty good especially when you consider that this film manages to take on one of the unwritten rules of horror films. Never harm children. I am not saying that this film does anything that would be cause for concern with kids simply because the premise is so outlandish and unrealistic. I am saying that I was surprised that a low budget horror film would even consider introducing a potential hot button topic like that for fear of backlash/protests. Besides, most kids are scared of clowns. I know I was.
