This is a movie I recommend just going in blind when you see it. Don't watch the trailer. Just pop it on like I did and watch as the carnage unfolds.
And boy does it unfold. So the movie is about the killing spree of Art the Clown who just by looking at him, you get the heebie jeebies, and that's before he uses various sharp implements on you. We aren't told why he does what he does, there is no backstory, nothing is dumbed down. He just wants to kill you. He meets two unlucky ladies who get caught in his obsession and becomes his latest unlucky prey. They run into an apartment building and that's where the fun really begins
The gore factor is this movie is extreme, plus the fact the clown does not speak. He doesn't need to, his facial expressions are enough to cause extreme dread. There are a few moments where you don't know if you should be pissing your pants laughing or from extreme terror.
It is no surprise that this movie gained a cult following, and there is even a sequel being planned which promises to be even more over the top than this one. Not sure how that can be pulled off as this movie was nightmare inducing enough.
As a horror fan, I cannot recommend this movie enough. Just don't blame me for reoccuring nightmares of Art the Clown's face. What do you think? If you seen the movie, did it scare you? Is it as terrifying as the title suggests? Do you still look over your shoulder to make sure you aren't being stalked by Art the Clown? Feel free to weigh in the comments below
