Creepy clown found footage flick Behind the Sightings gets a teaser trailer!

Last Updated on August 5, 2021

It was only a week or so ago that we shared the first news on the found footage creepy clown flick BEHIND THE SIGHTINGS. Back in the post, we shared the creepy poster for the flick (which you can find below) and today we have the film's very first teaser trailer, along with another EXCLUSIVE quote from the film's director Tony Cadwell.

You can read Cadwell's quote below as well as check out the super-creepy new teaser trailer, but let me say I am digging the hell out of the new footage we are seeing from the film.

The idea of creepy clowns popping up in my backyard is one of my top nightmares, and add to that the fact that this stupid sh*t actually happen (?!) and I am ten types of ready to peep BEHIND THE SIGHTINGS once it hits this October!

Director Tony Cadwell on piecing together BEHIND THE SIGHTINGS:

When the Smith family turned over the footage to me. I think it was close to over 112 hours of footage. Much of it was very professionally shot by Todd and Jessica. I was very impressed with their research and dedication to getting to the bottom of the creepy clown sightings. The family didn’t put any restrictions on me as to what I could and couldn’t show. The only guidance I was given was for me to show the world what had happened to Todd and Jessica Smith.  And that’s what I did.

I used their footage to show what they found while researching the creepy clown sightings. Personally, I find some of their footage very disturbing. Definitely, some of the most disturbing footage that I have ever worked with. But I feel it is necessary to put this out there for the world to see. So people can watch and understand for themselves what exactly happened to Todd and Jessica. I can only hope that by showing their work to the world. Maybe, just maybe, it will help their family find peace.


Based on over 112 hours of footage recovered from the personal belongings of aspiring filmmakers Todd and Jessica Smith. The husband and wife filmmaking duo were investigating the 2016 creepy clown sighting epidemic. 

The first clown sightings occurred in August 2016 in Greenville, South Carolina. Authorities were alerted to reports by neighborhood kids stating that creepy clowns were appearing in the woods near an apartment complex.  The clown sightings spread to all 50 states and across Europe. Todd and Jessica were attempting to track down clown sighting witnesses and the clowns involved in a rash of creepy clown sightings that plagued an eastern North Carolina community.

BEHIND THE SIGHTINGS is said to be hitting theaters this October. Let us know what you think of this new found footage movie on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!
