Dimension Films and Anchor Bay Entertainment have set June 17 as the theatrical and On Demand release date of the Eli Roth (“Knock Knock,” “Hostel” franchise) produced horror/thriller “Clown.” Directed by Jon Watts, who co-wrote the screenplay with Christopher Ford, the film stars Peter Stormare (“Fargo”), Laura Allen (TV’s “All My Children,” “The 4400”) and Elizabeth Whitmere (“The Last Hitman”).
A unique, frightening and disturbing take on evil clowns, “Clown” tells the story of a loving father who dons a clown outfit and makeup to perform at his son’s sixth birthday, only to later discover that the costume—red nose and wig included–will not come off and his own personality changes in a horrific fashion. To break the curse of the evil outfit, the father must make grim choices with his own family facing danger. In addition to the theatrical release, “Clown” will be available June 17 On Demand through Starz Digital.
