3.0 out of 5 stars The 1989 Sundance jury were on awesome drugs 4 May 2011
By David
Format:DVD
Clownhouse is a 1989 horror movie directed by Victor Salva (who went on to make the Jeepers Creepers movies), but it is probably most notable as featuring the acting debut of Sam Rockwell. It was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 1989 Sundance Film Festival.

The story follows a young boy, Casey (Nathan Forrest Winters), who has an intense fear of clowns (coulrophobia, in case you didn't know). With his mother away for the weekend, he is left in the care of his two older brothers, Geoffrey (Brian McHugh) and Randy (Sam Rockwell). They want to go to the circus, and thinking that Casey's fear is just a bit childish, they drag him along. Casey, of course, has the crap scared out of him, but he gets through it unscathed. However, what the boys don't know is that after the show, three escaped inmates from the local mental institution kill the clowns, dress up in their costumes, and because their mental, follow the boys home to kill them (obviously).

What follows is, despite its R-Rating, essentially a horror movie for kids. If you are looking for gore, turn your blood-lusting eyes elsewhere; there is barely a drop spilt here. Clownhouse should be no more than PG-13. As for that Sundance Film Festival nomination, I don't know who was on that jury, but they must have been on some pretty awesome drugs when they saw this. Clownhouse isn't a bad movie, but it sure ain't award worthy.

While there is little on-screen gore, there is also little on-screen death. Clownhouse is considered to be a slasher movie, but very few of the swipes draw blood. The body count is low, though there is one particular fatality that is fantastically daft, and worth the price of admission alone!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mind is a very strange thing. 22 Aug 2007
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars BAD BUT BAAAAD 13 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's poorly made and scripted, but there's something about this film, which completely scares me, and it's not just because you have 3 mental patients dressed up as clowns. Scary! The climax keeps getting me!
