Clown runs out of steam and ultimately regresses into an under-lit, generic slasher-film, albeit with good practical effects.

the clown costume serves as a guise for unspeakable appetites and acts, while the film's focus on very young children in extreme peril ensures some truly agonising tensions. For all the surface clowning, no one here comes out smiling.

The film cuts both ways, with its clownish killer part Stephen King's Pennywise, part reality's John Wayne Gacy, & though the material comes with its own inherent ridiculousness, Watts sticks to the harder route of never playing it for laughs.

Clichéd from start to finish, Clown is technically impressive but follows every rule of the book with one fatal mistake: it just isn't scary at all.… More
