Everybody’s least favourite balloon shaping psychopaths, clowns, have been making a terrifying comeback in recent years. And with Rob Zombie’s 31 and Damien Leone’s full-length Terrifer imminent, things are only going to get better. Or worse, depending how much clowns scare you.
While to many, Stephen King’s Pennywise is always going to remain cinema’s number one big-shoed boogeyman, here’s some of the best, or most evil, clowns to disgrace the big and small screen.

Well this is a bit good. Horror phenomenon Adam Wingard has just released a teaser for his latest film ‘The Woods’. Due 16th September (assume that’s the US date) on Lionsgate, the flick sets a group into (you guessed it) some woods and, if the trailer’s anything to judge by, their fun ends pretty sharpish.

But they don’t lie to us. They come right … Continue reading Sinister Will Waste Your Life [review]
I owe this film so many apologies. When faced with a film based solely around the exploits of an inexplicably animated car tire you’d be wise to have bottom rung expectations. That’s exactly what I did, and I was wrong. If Keanu Reeves can carve a career out for himself, there was absolutely no reason to doubt Rubber’s titular ‘character’, as, without a word, it … Continue reading Rubber Rolls to Victory [review]
