Film Review: CLOWNADO (2019)

CLOWNADO **** USA 2019 Dir: Todd Sheets. 100 mins

Big disclaimer: I love killer clown movies. I also love disgusting, over the top gore. If you add big acting and truly likeable characters to the mix, well, you’ve got me for life. Enter: CLOWNADO.

How a clownado? Why a clownado? Big Ronnie (John O’Hara) and his gang of killer clowns are cursed when his ex-girlfriend Savanna (Rachel Lagen) enlists a witch’s powerful magic to get revenge after Ronnie kills her lover. Somehow (who really cares how) the spell turns them into a vengeful tornado of terror out to disembowel and dismember anyone who gets in their way.

A guy with a pickup truck, a stripper with a heart of gold, an Elvis impersonator, and a teenaged girl are all that stand between the demonic clowns and a killer femme fatale.

This movie has it all. It’s got gallons of blood and guts, but it also has great one-liners, boobs with teeth, and a demonic dwarf clown clawing its way out of a corpse. It’s got feminism (what else would you call a group of women ripping the head off of an evil clown with their bare hands?). And it has genuinely likeable characters, from Lagen’s Harley Quinn-esque badass to the group of misfits who save the world.

CLOWNADO is a delightfully repulsive B-horror masterpiece that will carve a smile onto your face.
