Clownado (2019) Review

by Yo Adrian on February 02nd, 2020 | Movie Review | Comedy, Gore, Clown, Splatter

Clownado was directed by Todd Sheets (who also directed Sleepless Nights and Moonchild) and stars Linnea Quigley (from The Barn and Demonica), Eileen Dietz (from Itsy Bitsy and Lake Alice) and Joel D. Wynkoop from Demon and Killing Spree). It's about several psycho supernatural clowns on a ridiculously bloody crazy killing spree.

There's No Shelter From This Storm!

Writing a plot summary for Clownado is about as pointless as trying to critique it. This movie isn't for anyone even thinking of taking it seriously, even for a second. It was different for Sharknado which was super original and sported a celeb filled cast. It also pulled in nearly $800 million bones (what!?) off a $2 million budget. Clownado is Sharknado knockoff #3,217 and killer clown movie #89,414.

So, there's this movie called Thankskilling that Clownado reminded me of. Not in content of course, but in style. Thankskilling was an ultra low budget ($3,500) B-horror about a killer turkey (named "Turkie") that featured a horrendous script, even worse characters to deliver it and ultra close-up shots to awkwardly film it. Clownado features a similarly banal script, train wreck characters and uncomfortably tight close-ups. I loved Thankskilling for this and I loved Clownado for it as well.

All you really need to known about Clownado is that it's about some charismatic killer clowns hopping rides on tornadoes en route to revenge kill some poor bastards (one of whom is definitely NOT named Flo). But they don't just kill them, they freakin' slaughter them and dance in their blood. It's actually pretty insane. This movie is definitely not for the squeamish. They also giggle, a lot. I wasn't such a big fan of the incessant giggling, but I get it, clowns.

Overall, not bad for an Indigogo-funded horror flick with a budget of around 20k.

Worth Watching? 

Oh boy, that's a tough one. This is a simple, trashy, brain cell melting, low budget, blood splattered comedy that's best to watch when you're either drinking or hanging out with friends. If that's you, you'll probably love Clownado. And you'll probably love Camp Death III in 2D too.
