Clown In Horror Movie 'Crepitus' Is Even More F*cked Up Than Pennywise
2017 has been absolutely ruthless towards caulrophobiacs.
American Horror Story: Cult, which premiered in the US last week, has put murderous clowns at the front and centre of its plot, and the chilling new adaptation of Stephen King’s IT sees Pennywise terrorise a small American town with red balloons.
This Halloween, an upcoming horror film will also have a clown as its villain, and, judging by the trailer, this guy could easily give Pennywise a run for his money. The flick, titled Crepitus, will focus on the titular clown, whose hunger is only satisfied when he eats little children.
One scene in the trailer sees Crepitus dig an unborn baby out from a mother’s womb so he can feast on it, so trust us, when we say that this clown knows no bounds – we’re definitely not joking.
Crepitus likes to come for children on their birthdays, “bringing presents that aren’t very pleasant“, and whilst Pennywise’s signature happens to be a red balloon – his is simply just a silver bell, which he jingles to alert his victims of his presence. Once he picks out the child that he prefers, he stores them away and marks an X on their forehead.
In the film, a 17-year-old girl named Elizabeth and her younger sister, Sam, will find themselves at the centre of his cannibalistic interests. As they learn more about his history, they’ll have to fight to survive his insatiable hunger, but how on earth will the be able to escape? We can’t wait to find out.
Bill Moseley, who die-hard horror fans might recognize from cult classics such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, The Devils Rejects, Repo! The Genetic Opera and The House of 1000 Corpses, will be taking on the terrifying role of Crepitus.
Check out the trailer below and try not to scream …
Crepitus will be released in the US on October 15th. Just in time for Halloween.
