Horror News: Legendary SOV Director Todd Sheets Announces Crowdfunding Campaign For The Horror Noir Clownado

Shot-on-video (SOV) legend Todd Sheets, whose recent work includes Dreaming Purple Neon and the werewolf creature feature Bonehill Road, has announced a crowdfunding campaign for his next feature Clownado. Dreaming Purple Neon was everything that you would love about a grindhouse or exploitation film, harkening back to the days of excessive nudity, blood, and gore. We reviewed it and included it on our list of top 10 indie horror films from 2016. You can read our review of Bonehill Road here, which was included on our list of top 10 indie horror films from 2017.

Fans should expect no less from this horror noir, promising no cgi and all practical effects. It is going to be a one of a kind thrill ride into the depths of depravity and gore, with crazed killer clowns on a rampage from Hell out for revenge and only blood can quench their savage desire for destruction. Check out the IndiGogo campaign and perks here and their GoFundMe page here. You can view the campaign synopsis and teaser below.

"With only 3 weeks left to reach our goal we really need YOUR HELP... all the Horror fans, websites, zones and blogs.... please spread the word. So many great projects need crowdfunding and we also help some of those... but we are very close to our goal and we are CALLING ON YOU... the people who matter - the ones who love films like THIS!

Don’t judge a book by it’s cover! Our goal with Clownado is to make a damned good, scary and splatter-filled, nonstop roller coaster ride of a Horror movie. Shot in a “Neo-Noir” style... It’s something new, fresh, original and unique but also familiar. Using only Practical Special Makeup Effects and old school styled Visual Effects, Clownado has the vibe of Classic Horror movies we love. We promise it is going to be over the top. Think Evil Dead, Dead Alive, Bad Taste and Texas Chainsaw Massacre if Lucio Fulci was directing, all mixed in a swirling storm of insanity! Now add in the cinematic visual style known as NOIR.... intense composition with shadow and light.... and a bit of that incredible John Carpenter suspense (John was also influenced by Noir classics).... supernatural Clowns and you threw them into a swirling storm of insanity... this would be it! This is certainly no comedy!

It is a wild and crazy title, but I hope that with Todd Sheets as Director, you know to always expect the unexpected. It is not a parody nor is it near as ridiculous as the title suggests. His last two films, Dreaming Purple Neon and Bonehill Road have been OFFICIAL SELECTIONS at over 160 Film Festivals combined, worldwide. And Bonehill Road is still just in the middle of the Filmfest, Theatrical and Convention tour. Together both films have won 2 dozen awards and had a HUGE amount of critical praise and support from the Horror community. Clownado will be his most ambitious and EPIC film yet!

With YOUR HELP, Clownado will be a kick ass movie with scares and gore and a damned good script. Something very original and something you have never seen before. And we promise you one thing, as Todd's old friend Chas Balun used to say, we WILL deliver the groceries! Our main goal is to entertain you, and I will NOT stop until we do.... Keep an open mind and give us a chance... and we won't let you down! PLUS we ALREADY have some interest for marketing and distribution.

But none of that matters WITHOUT YOUR HELP. We have all the gear and the crew and half of the cast all set and ready to roll, but we are a small company, and none of us take a salary... EVER. We pour every dime back into making bigger and better movies. But, unlike some of our other films, we cannot do this one alone. The makeup effects and visuals do cost a bit... we want to do this with Practical Effects. Some visual effects will be done on a computer, but it is not CGI.... mainly for stuff like mattes and wire removal. And we need to be able to fly in our genre icons, and put them in a hotel. As with our other films... every dime will be used for production and it will ALL go onscreen. We even asked people on the Official Clownado Facebook page and decided to do TWO campaigns, one on GoFundMe and one on IndieGoGo so you can use your own preferred site. Time is ticking, so please help!!! Share this post, spread the word and lets do something awesome together!!!"
