Trailer For Horror Flick ‘Clown’ From Jon Watts, Eli Roth
  |  @   |  

Clowns and horror go together very well. Many people have a fear of the colorful characters ranging from just being unsettled by them to having a full-blown phobia of them, so it’s very easy to use them in telling scary stories. We’ve seen them used in a wide variety of horrors over the years from purely terrifying in Stephen King’s It, to cheesy in Killer Klowns from Outer Space, to more comical in Stitches (which you should definitely consider watching on Netflix or elsewhere if you’ve never seen it and you’re into horrors that don’t take themselves seriously) and much more.

As for the simply titled Clown, which is directed by Cop Car and the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts and produced by Cabin Fever and Hostel director Eli Roth, the goal is clearly to give people some nightmares. A trailer for the movie has been released, and you can check it out below.

Movie Review: The Green Inferno
  |  @   |  

The Green Inferno
Director: Eli Roth
Screenwriter: Eli Roth, Guillermo Amoedo
Cast: Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, Sky Ferreira, Nicolas Martinez, Kirby Bliss Blanton, Aaron Burns
Universal Pictures | Blumhouse
Rated R | 121 Minutes
Release Date: September 25, 2015

Finally, after two years of waiting, Eli Roth‘s The Green Inferno has reached theaters. Roth burst onto the horror scene back in 2002 with the low budget Cabin Fever, about a group of friends whose fun small town weekend is ruined by crazy local hillbillies and a flesh eating virus. His offbeat sense of humor and gross-out effects signaled that he was a force to be reckoned with. Then came 2005’s Hostel, and its superior 2007 sequel which garnered notoriety and helped coin the phrase “torture porn.” He has since collaborated with Quentin Tarantino (!), and been busy producing horror films and TV projects.

In 2013, Roth completed The Green Inferno, his tribute to his favorite movie – Ruggero Deodato’s notorious 1980 Cannibal Holocaust. That film caused such a stir that director Deodato was arrested on suspicion that he actually killed his crew, and had to demonstrate scenes in court. It is still banned in parts of the world. A squabble between film distributors left Roth’s pet project in limbo, until Blumhouse Productions swooped in as saviors and here we are.
