LIONS GATE CLOWNS AROUND
Joining the long line of true-life serial-killer shockers is GACY, directed by Clive Saunders, written by Saunders and David Birke and produced by Larry Rattner and Timothy Swain (who were also behind the critically acclaimed DAHMER).
This movie is, of course, about the notorious John Wayne Gacy, the suburban Chicago man who portrayed a clown in daily life (and become known for his paintings of them), but was also a vicious killer of young men, claiming over 30 victims before being apprehended. Mark (PEE-WEE?S BIG ADVENTURE) Holton plays Gacy, with Charlie Weber, Glenn (CSI) Morshower and Adam (X FILES) Baldwin co-starring.
Lions Gate is partnered with DEJ in releasing the film direct to video May 13; the DVD will include director/actor commentary.
