Do you like clowns?
No, of course you don't. Nobody does. But perhaps you might enjoy flesh-eating clowns, somehow merged with a tornado? Yes, your interest has been piqued now hasn't it?
I say 'somehow' merged with a tornado, not in reference to the impossibility of a tornado merged with clowns, but because having watched the trailer for Clownado several times, I still haven't really got a clue what happens. I'm simply guessing the two fearsome prospects are merged due to the title of the film. There is also a short clip of what looks a bit like a stormy tornado at the start of the trailer... before all the flesh eating clowns get involved.
But lets not be too cynical now. In 2013, many people said, 'Sharknado? What the fuck is that? That sounds like a bloody ridiculous film,' and while they may have been right, we've since 'welcomed' Sharknado 2: The Second One, Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!, Sharknado: The 4th Awakens, Sharknado 5: Global Swarming and The Last Sharknado: It's About Time... So it might be ridiculous, but so are people.
Indeed, Clownado only exists because people were prepared to fund it, with the makers surpassing their $15,000 goal on Indiegogo, according to Bloody Disgusting. The film is directed by Todd Sheets, who shared his werewolf horror, Bonehill Road, with the world last month, and seeing as though the trailer for Clownado is quite hard to make head or tail of, I will let him explain what it's about.
He said: "The goal with Clownado was to make a damned good, scary and splatter-filled, nonstop roller coaster ride. 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 horror 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."

In case you can't quite bring yourself to watch the trailer, it starts out with the ominous message, 'there is no shelter from this storm', with a tornado in the background. From there, it's basically a lot of clowns eating flesh and organs. There's also a few snippets of clowns riding improvised motor devices, licking bloody knives and crawling through narrow shifts. There appears to be a lesbian evil clown kiss thrown in there for good measure too.
Unfortunately though, the release date for the film is not yet known. Guess we'll just have to hold tight.
