Watch: Eli Roth Turns Fake 'Clown' Trailer into Terrifying Horror Film
While we're still waiting for Eli Roth to turn his Grindhouse trailer for the bloody horror Thanksgiving into a feature length film, another project with the same writers is coming sooner. Robot & Frank writer Chirs Ford and Jon Watts teamed with Roth to turn the fake horror trailer Clown into a feature length film. Watts is directing the film starring Andy Powers as a loving father who finds a clown suit for his son's birthday party, only to realize the suit is part of an evil curse that turns its wearer into a killer. Now the first trailer for the twisted film is here, ensuring that anyone who isn't already scared of clowns will be soon.
Here's the first trailer for Jon Watts' Clown from The Film Stage:
Clown is produced by horror mastermind Eli Roth and directed by Jon Watts, from a script he co-wrote with Chris Ford. Based on a fake horror trailer, the film follows a father who puts on a clown costume for his son’s birthday, but a curse doesn't allow him to take it off and turns him into a brutal killer. Andy Powers stars in the film along with Laura Allen and Peter Stormare, but the film doesn't have a release date yet. We expect it to hit some film festivals, maybe South by Southwest in March, so stay tuned for anymore updates.
