A new gruesome franchise hopes to follow in the successful footsteps of Sharknado. Check out the trailer for Clownado below.
Written by Thunder Levin and directed by Anthony C. Ferrante, the Sharknado series came to an end with the sixth instalment, tastefully featuring “Nazis, dinosaurs, knights, and Noah’s Ark”.
Now, director and writer Todd Sheets is hitting the screen with similar format, albeit with a storm of evil clowns.
“The goal with Clownado was to make a damned good, scary and splatter-filled, nonstop roller coaster ride,” said Sheets of the movie on IMDB. “It’s something new, fresh, original and unique but also familiar. Using only Practical Special Makeup Effects and old school styled Visual Effects, Clownado has the vibe of classic horror movies we love.
He continued: “Think Evil Dead, Dead Alive, Bad Taste and Texas Chainsaw Massacre if Lucio Fulci was directing, all mixed in a swirling storm of insanity.”
Sheets added: “Now add in scary supernatural Clowns and the cinematic visual style known as film noir – intense composition with shadow and light, – and a bit of that incredible John Carpenter suspense and you have an ambitious, over the top gorefest epic! Don’t judge a book by it’s cover – this is certainly no comedy.”
As Bloody Disgusting reports, the movie successfully funded through Indiegogo earlier this year after raising over $15,000.
Clownado is due for release later this year.
