Check out the crazy Red Band teaser trailer for Bill Moseley's upcoming film, CREPITUS!
Sub-genre's of horror films seem to come in waves....it was vampire movies for a while, then there was a zombie craze, and now the latest fad seems to be the killer clown film. While clowns have always had a part in horror films over the years (KILLER CLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE, IT, AMUSEMENT, etc), lately there has been a steady flow of clown films, probably ushered in by the Eli Roth produced film, simply titled CLOWN. That film had a bunch of publicity around it when it came out which got the ball rolling.
Lately we have had AMERICAN HORROR STORY: FREAKSHOW, the KILLJOY films, 100 TEARS, ALL HALLOWS EVE 1 & 2, THE LAST CIRCUS, and Rob Zombie's 31 just to name a few. More are on the horizon as well, such as Billy Pon's CIRCUS OF THE DEAD, which could possibly end up being the best of them all!
A new clown film has made a recent appearance, and from the looks of the trailer, this one is going to be a blast! It's called CREPITUS, and it stars genre fave, Bill Moseley as the title character. Here is the basic plot from the film's imdb page:
Seventeen year old Elizabeth and her younger sister Sam are thrust into circumstances more terrifying than life with their abusive, drunken mother when they are forced to move into their deceased Grandfather's house. Frightened beyond belief, they are forced to learn horrible things about their family history. Never mind the ghosts in the house, there is something far worse that takes an interest in them ... a cannibalistic clown named Crepitus.
Imdb.com lists the release date as October 15th of this year, but I am not sure if that is a real date or not. Stay tuned here or keep up with the official facebook page for more details and release info!
