Film Review - ClownTown


This Halloween season welcomes not one, but two movies centered on the idea of killer clowns hunting innocent people through empty buildings for sport. Rob Zombie’s “31” is scrappy and sicko, playing to the helmer’s tastes in demented characters and ugly violence, presented with a lovingly low-budget style. Tom Nagel’s “ClownTown” is definitely…in focus.
