Wrinkles the Clown became a viral sensation for crawling out from underneath a little girl's bed to scare her. Since then, he's evolved into a real-life Bloody Mary-like figure, with kids making a game of calling him up on the phone, and parents hiring him to scare their children. There's now a documentary on the icon, titled Wrinkles the Clown, set to release later this year. That film has now released its first trailer.
Magnolia Pictures & Magnet Releasing dropped the documentary's trailer, which opens with parents actually calling up Wrinkles to teach their kids a lesson. The trailer reveals the film will have an interview with Wrinkles himself, teasing the possibility of finally seeing the mysterious man behind the mask. There's even a into his past, as he apparently used to be a regular clown. Since nobody was hiring, he added a "little edge" to his job description.
As of right now, the identity of Wrinkles the Clown is unknown, with several news stations trying -- and failing -- to identify the mysterious person behind the mask.
Wrinkles the Clown will be released in theaters and on-demand on October 4.
