***May contain some spoilers***
When Carlee’s marriage ceremony in Vegas doesn’t work out, Carlee and her three friends travel outside of Vegas for a spa day. However, while traveling, they get in a car crash and end up staying at the Clown Inn. But what they realize is that the Clowns that inhabit the surrounding area have an evil side.
The special effects and gore elements in this film are incorporated in a very amateurish way. There is one scene in which one clown is holding a bunny and subsequently rips the bunny’s head off. The bunny looks like it is a stuffed animal. It is unclear whether it was intended to look fake but it certainly did a good job at creating these comical and ridiculous effects.
The Grave Review
It is difficult to even classify Clown Fear as a B-movie horror film. More appropriately, Clown Fear is an F-movie for failing in every cinematic aspect that is possible. I was not sure if I was watching a soup opera or a soft core porno. The film quality was so low that it was hard to believe this film was offered for order “On Demand” on cable.
Rather than create a cohesive story line, it became clear that much of the selling point of this film was reliant on showing nudity. The plot itself had little substance. Further, the character’s backstories were not built during the film, nor did you feel sympathetic for the situation they eventually get in. In addition, the antagonists (i.e. the clowns) had no motive or rationale for their actions. As such, Clown Fear failed in executing a thoughtful story.
For the foregoing reasons, Grave Reviews gives Clown Fear one-half graves out of five graves.
