The horror genre has had some interesting new iconography over the years – two of the biggest contributors being Andy Muschietti’s IT adaptation and the Syfy Channel’s seemingly endless series of Sharknado sequels. Now as if by the wish of a deranged mad scientist, there appears to be a cross between the two coming soon. Yes, that’s right – we will be getting a Clownado film sometime this year.
“The goal with Clownado was to make a damned good, scary and splatter-filled, nonstop roller coaster ride,” says Sheets. “It’s something new, fresh, original and unique but also familiar. Using only Practical Special Makeup Effects and old school styled Visual Effects, Clownado has the vibe of classic lorror movies we love. Think Evil Dead, Dead Alive, Bad Taste and Texas Chainsaw Massacre if Lucio Fulci was directing, all mixed in a swirling storm of insanity.”
It definitely sounds like a concoction of cheesy horror goodness – and I’m excited to see how it turns out. Check out the trailer and new poster below!

In the film…
Cursed demonic circus clowns set out on a vengeful massacre using tornadoes. A stripper, Elvis impersonator, truck driver, teen runaway, and a dude get caught in the supernatural battle between femme fatale and the boss clown from hell.
The movie stars notorious 1980’s horror scream queen Linnea Quigley alongside cast members Eileen Dietz, John O’Hara, Rachel Lagen, Dilynn Fawn Harvey, and Joel D. Wynkoop.
Clownado will be premiering sometime this summer.
