'Clown' Trailer Not For the Faint of Heart

Would you invite him to your kid's party?

Back in 2010, a parody trailer for a film purportedly produced by Eli Roth, hit the Internet. It was called "Clown" and wonder of wonder, miracle of miracles, Roth liked it and decided to take the story and make an actual film. The story is fairly simple, the clown a couple hires for their son's birthday party doesn't show up, dad finds a cursed clown suit in their home, dons it, saves the party, and then can't take it off and gets all murdery. Hilarity ensues!

Produced by Roth and directed by Jon Watts, "Clown" stars Andy Powers, Peter Stormare, Laura Allen and Elizabeth Whitmere and will be released by Dimension films some time this year. It is uncertain whether or not it will hit theaters.

Readers with coulrophobia, do not proceed. Brave souls, check out the real trailer (hurry because it keeps getting removed from some sites) and then notice how similar it is to the fake one.
