Wrinkles the Clown Photos

Movie Info

It started with a silent black and white surveillance video uploaded to YouTube that depicted a child sleeping peacefully. Until a disheveled old man disguised as a clown slid out from beneath her bed. Afterward, similar videos started appearing online, showing the clown pushing a cart in a parking lot. Waving alongside a busy highway. Holding balloons in front of a suburban home. The unsettling clips, which immediately went viral, launched Wrinkles The Clown to internet infamy. Soon, cryptic stickers with his eerie visage and a phone number were plastered on telephone poles and in bathrooms all over Florida promising to terrify misbehaving children. Over one million voicemails were left.

  • A treatise on viral fame and the good and the bade sides of that.

    Oct 7, 2019 | Full Review…
  • [T]he "Wrinkles the Clown" doc is still fairly horrifying. From the alarming reports of copycat clowns to the many scenes of youngsters reacting to Wrinkles rumors, this movie's a reminder that even abstract concepts can have a dark, persuasive power.

    Oct 4, 2019 | Full Review…
  • What Nichols finds is promising, but because of the way the movie is structured, the reveal feels like a murky cheat.

    Oct 3, 2019 | Full Review…
  • While it hardly sells Wrinkles as a culture-shaking phenomenon, this modest doc will play best to those who enjoy being creeped out by him enough to suspend their disbelief.

    Oct 3, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Wrinkles The Clown has only the vaguest of justifications for its misdirection, which ultimately proves much less entertaining than a movie about a creepy clown who terrorizes misbehaving children ought to be.

  • This is creepy. Not because of the clown. Think of the effect of the clown. [Full review in Spanish].
