Have you ever walked down an alley late at night and felt allright naturally you will feel abit nervous but sure that you will be safe.
if afterwards you were told someone was murdered there a few months or years ago, would you walk through that alley in the night on your own again?
the mind is a weired thing.
When I first saw this film i Thought it was a good film, the acting was allright the story was good and though there are many other better thrillers out there this one held its ground real well.
It was only afterwards that i heared the director of this film victor salva known for the Jeepers Creepers films both 1 and 2 on which he served as writer and director, had molested the then 12 year old actor from Clownhouse.
He was to serve 5 years after the video tape emerged of him and the star of his film clownhouse Nathen Forrest Winters 12 years old at the time engaging in sexual activities Mr Salva in his 30's was giving Mr Winters oral sex however he only seved 15 months and was then released.
After learning of what he done to the poor 12 year old child. i could not watch the film with the same ease i had when i first saw it.
it still remains a good film and the scenes i saw of the kids partially naked i saw as innocence now seems some what disturbing to me.
come to think of it in jeepers creepers2 the child who is the 1st victim looks like he is about 12 too.
the creature could of gone for the father or the older son but yet he goes straight after the little boy Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
all in all, Clownhouse does deliver, not all the way but enougth to say its worth the watch.
If you can get your hands on this film then take a look at it.
