Before he was announced last year to direct "Spider-Man: Homecoming," Jon Watts was largely unknown, as his road thriller "Cop Car" hadn't even been release. But before he teamed with Kevin Bacon, Watts directed and co-wrote the supernatural horror film "Clown," which will finally see release later this month.
The title alone is likely enough to let you know whether you'll want to reserve your ticket now or avoid the theater entirely; people have strong feelings about clowns, particularly killer clowns. If you somehow remain undecided, however, there's a new clip from The Weinstein Company that offers a taste of what "Clown" has in store for you.
Fair warning: There will be blood. And clowns -- well, one clown, at least.
In theaters and On Demand on June 17, "Clown" stars Andy Powers, Peter Stormare, Laura Alle and Elizabeth Whitmere.
CLOWN is a story of a loving father who dons a clown outfit and makeup to perform at his son’s sixth birthday, only to later discover that the costume – red nose and wig included– will not come off and his own personality changes in a horrific fashion. To break the curse of the evil outfit, the father must make grim choices with his own family facing danger.
