    So I just watched this today and personally I thought it was horrible. It had an amazing trailer but the film itself was so boring, predictable and stupid (even for a horror film)

    Has anyone else seen it?

    Wanted to ask aswell didnt this start as a short film? If so what's that like for those that have seen it?

    From what I've read it was based off a faux trailer.

    I didn't mind the film. It could have been better but I think it still turned out pretty decent. I like the idea of someone turning into an evil clown.

    I was so disappointed with digging up the marrow, but I really enjoyed clown, lagged a little in the middle, but overall it was very enjoyable, blind purchased this as it had an ultra limited edition 500 unit Blu-ray release here in the UK, a zavvi exclusive, going for quite a bit of money now, so even if I hated it I was pretty sure I would get my money back.

    Both films disapointed me but Marrow only a little, thought it was still very enjoyable. Clown on the other hand really disapointed me.

    I enjoyed Clown! It had a cheesy 90's vibe IMO. Kinda reminded me of watching Candyman or Wishmaster back in the day.

    Not perfect, but definately worth a watch :vD

    I didn't realize this wasn't out in the US yet. It's been available in Australia for ages. What's going on there?

    They're honestly one of the worst companies when it comes to horror. If they're not going to try and profit on what they have then why even have/make these horror films?

    Lol, considering this has been out for so long overseas and people interested in the film have probably seen it already, it seems like a dumb move to release it theatrically. How is this a better move than releasing it when it was ready a year or more ago? Surely it would have made more money for them back then than it will now.
