What are people saying?

  • ZYNAB's rating of the film The Clown Murders

    The worst feature film I have ever seen aside from Pixar's CARS. This isn't even a horror film; it's about four ugly 70s guys who dress up as clowns, kidnap a woman friend of theirs who doesn't even care about being kidnapped, and yell mean names at each other for over an hour after locking themselves in a random house. Like Cassavetes' Husbands in low budget fake horror dressing.
