Looks like we're getting more scary clowns.
Evil clowns are blowing up the horror market again. With this summer's release of Eli Roth's Clown and the upcoming IT remake, those scary bastards are quickly taking over the genre.
News comes tonight that ITN Distribution has picked up the North American rights to the horror film, Clowntown.
Written by Jeff Miller (Axe Giant: The Wrath of Paul Bunyan) and directed by Tom Nagel (“The Retrieval”), the film stars Brian Nagel (Katy Perry’s “Roar”), Lauren Elise (Justin Lin’s “Help”), Andrew Staton (“Relentless”), Katie Keene (Union Furnace), Jeff Denton (The Beast of Bray Road) and Greg Violand (Batman v. Superman). CLOWNTOWN will roll out in theaters starting September 30, 2016 and on VOD and DVD on October 4, 2016. ITN Distribution’s President Stuart Alson made the announcement today.
CLOWNTOWN tells the story of a group of friends who get stranded in a seemingly abandoned town and find themselves stalked by a gang of violent psychopaths dressed as clowns. It is loosely inspired by the clowns who terrorized Bakersfield, CA in 2014.
