Critic Reviews for The Clown Murders

All Critics (1)

  • Except for some flashes in the last 30 minutes where the inherent creepiness of clowns and whispery voices buys the film some atmosphere, it's got boredom to spare.

Audience Reviews for The Clown Murders

  • Aug 06, 2009
    <div style="width:280px;"><a href=""><img src="" border="0"/></a><div style="text-align:center;font-size:10px;"><a href="">The Clown Murders</a> </div></div> John Candy's first film, shot in Toronto, indirectly about the unforeseen consequences of urban expansion. Candy and white collar coworkers gather at a soon-to-be demolished farmhouse at the city's edge on Halloween. There they attempt to play a joke on their boss by kidnapping his wife to forestall the real estate deal that has lead to the condemnation of the farm for an apartment complex. After kidnapping the boss' fiancée while wearing clown masks, a real clown shows up and starts killing them off. But who and why? A bit roughshod and small budget, but an interesting idea, and fun to see since it was Candy's first film appearance. Also some memorable shots of urban over-developmental sprawl extending right up to the surrounding farms.
