Review by Matthew Mills

Clowns are nothing new to the horror genre. They have been a staple of the genre for decades, whether as otherworldly demons (‘It’), outer-space-aliens-incognito (‘Killer Klowns from Outer Space’,) or straight-up psycho killers (‘100 Tears’). Not merely an essential part of the landscape of modern horror, but also as part of fears and phobias people have in their everyday lives (myself included). There is just something intangibly creepy and inherently unsettling about them.
