Murderous clowns on the loose in Clowntown, coming this September

Killer clowns never go out of style. This year already brought us CLOWN, and Rob Zombie's 31 is still on the horizon, and now we have another face-painted bastard coming at us in the form of CLOWNTOWN. ITN Distribution has acquired North American rights to the horror thriller, written by Jeff Miller (Axe Giant: The Wrath of Paul Bunyan) and directed by Tom Nagel (“The Retrieval”). The film stars Brian Nagel (Katy Perry’s “Roar”), Lauren Elise (Justin Lin’s “Help”), Andrew Staton (“Relentless”), Katie Keene (Union Furnace), Jeff Denton (The Beast of Bray Road) and Greg Violand (Batman v. Superman).

Robert Kurtzman (creator of From Dusk Till Dawn) co-produced. David H. Greathouse (Syfy’s “Face/Off,” Tusk) handled the bulk of the makeup FX.

CLOWNTOWN tells the story of a group of friends who get stranded in a seemingly abandoned town and find themselves stalked by a gang of violent psychopaths dressed as clowns. It is loosely inspired by the clowns who terrorized Bakersfield, CA in 2014.

CLOWNTOWN will roll out in theaters starting September 30th before moving on to VOD and DVD October 4th.
