Clown Blu-ray review

Our Verdict

No laughing matter.


  • Blu-ray release: 2 March 2015
  • Director: Jon Watts
  • Starring: Eli Roth
  • Peter Stormare
  • Laura Allen
  • Andy Powers


After donning a clown suit for his son’s birthday, Kent (Andy Powers) can’t get the damn thing off and then turns into a clown-demon that preys on children. Produced by Eli Roth, this monster/were-clown/possession flick has a neat premise and interesting subtexts (domestic abuse, paedophilia) but is neither as unsettling nor blackly humorous as it should be.

Perfunctorily lit and shot, it comes with a creaky backstory delivered by Peter Stormare as the suit’s previous owner, and is worth seeing only for the bit where a dog eats the clown’s nose and turns into a red-eyed savage.
