Spider-Man: Homecoming director's new horror movie is about a man who turns into a clown

Coulrophobic, are you? Watch IT when you were young and regretted it ever since? Then maybe don't watch this trailer from new Spidey director Jon Watts and producer Eli Roth about a man who literally can't take a clown costume off. Cue much gross out and cringe as his wife tries to remove the nose only to find out that it's not fake anymore...

There's a slew of clown movies kicking around at the moment but this certainly looks interesting and hey, clown demons. It's been floating around the festival circuit since early last year but it'll be fun to see exactly what Jon Watts can do before Spider-Man Homecoming (opens in new tab). This'll be the second Spider-Man director to have cut his teeth on horror after Sam Raimi built his career on The Evil Dead movies. Clown is out in US cinemas and on demand on June 17 and is already available to buy in the UK.
