Clown (2015) Review:

Eli Roth latest production feels like a twisted attempt to reproduce how Stephen King’s It (1990), a movie that scared a whole generation of kids by depicting a nasty clown who murders children. So yes, Clown does resembles It in that there is clown killing children, yet the two movies are different.

The concept of a killing costume that becomes a second skin is really good and, as far as I can remember, quite a novelty in the horror genre. The clown monster is presented as a demon, but I choose to list this movie as a monster one since it really has the feel of other transformation movies such as in The Fly or the recent Horns.

The clown itself is definitely the highlight of the movie. The transformation is gradual and a delight to watch. Towards the end, the filmmakers managed to come with a clown that is really, really scary.


Unfortunately, the movie dramatically lacks the punch to be a great one. It feels really long, mostly because of all the long of useless scenes in between the great action ones. Aside from the clown itself, the characters are lame too, and the acting forgettable.

An average watch, but one that still deserves the average mark.
