Clown (2016) 
Clown - Movie Review
3/4 stars

Never again would I look at Clowns the same way after seeing this movie, but that get's me thinking, when did I like them in the first place.

The story to Clown is about a father discovers the clown suit and decides to wear it for his son's birthday party. However, he soon discovers that the suit turns the wearer into a killing machine.

Clowns never scared me because I always know it's somebody else in cheap looking make-up trying to make you laugh, but really they creeping us out. I have seen many movies and TV shows with scary looking clowns in it and yes I can see why people are scared of them but they never took a big effect on me, until I sawed this and for now on, I will stay far way from clowns as possible.

You can hate or like the film "Clown" if your a horror fan or not, but for me, I like my horror movies best served cold and freaky, and "Clown" isn't a bad flick. I can see a lot of effort went into the make-up and the design of the monster of the clown.

To those who have seen the movie did you think for a second that Eli Roth directed this movie, yes I know he stars in the movie but the movie has that style look to it that Eli Roth himself would use and I'm saying that has a positive.

The acting in the movie was pretty good from Andy Powers and Laura Allen. The directing as well was pretty good.

Normally I don't like over the top gore in movies, as I think it's a cheap way to get 18 rating Or if your american Rated R), but to be honest, I didn't get that in this movie for most of the time you don't really see much of guts flying everywhere but most of the after math of what happened.

Now for the flaws: The characters in the movie are mostly forgettable and I'm not talking about Laura Allen or Andy Powers characters, I mean the other supporting or the background characters that always seem to get screen time which they shouldn't, because they dull to watch.

The movie dose have some cliches that really stick out and I thought we are already pass some of the cliches when it comes to horror movies today, but luckily after a while the movie forgotten the cliches as it went on. Oh remember when I said some of the acting was good well the kid actor was a bit noticeable that he's trying to be scared but I didn't buy it not for one bit.

Besides that, "Clown" isn't a bad flick as I thought. Some people may not agree with me on this one and that's fine, because you got your own opinion and that's awesome. Well, at least I enjoyed it.
