Clowning Around With Horror

Circus of the Dead

Circuses and/or circus clowns are no strangers to horror movies, which I find to be an odd sub-genre given that a circus and subsequent clownage is supposed to bring joy and laughter, not die kill bleed.

The first such horror movie featuring circus-y stuff that gooned me out was Carnival of Souls (1962). That creepy dude who kept following the freaked out blonde chick gave me nightmares about blonde chicks for years.

But that’s sorta all behind me now. Ahem.

So a new themed horror movie being prepped for 2014 is titled Circus of the Dead. I like the title. Here’s more to like…

Circus of the Dead

“A man becomes entangled in a deadly morality game when the circus comes to town and a sadistic clown forces him in the most horrific ways to examine the things in life he takes for granted.”

I need to be careful here; the things in life I take for granted are toilet paper (for dabbing purposes and what not), my toaster (I just think those things are so darned neat) and air. I do not want a sadistic clown to take away any or all of those things from me. So to all clowns out there, I repent my wicked attitudes.
