Director, actor, writer and producer Eli Roth (‘Cabin Fever’, ‘Hostel’, ‘The Funhouse 3D’) is getting behind a new flick from director John Watts. The new feature ‘Clown’ is based on a faux trailer that Watts himself put together. And of course after his ‘Grindhouse’ experience we all know Roth loves his faux trailers, having already signed on to develop his horror teaser ‘Thanksgiving’ (featured between Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Death Proof’ and Robert Rodriquez’s ‘Planet Terror’) into a full-length movie. Incredibally Watts decided to namedrop Roth into the fake trailer (with a little ‘master of horror’ compliment) and this has certainly worked in his favour. You can check out the original trailer below.
“‘Clown’ is a horror flick about a father who upon adorning a clown costume is unable to get it off ultimately transforming into a horrific Penny-wise-like jester.”
