A Killer Vampire Clown?
What’s creepier than a clown? A psychotic or psychopathic clown. (Note: There is a big difference between these two terms, though they are often confused. “Psychotic” means insane, if you want to simplify it, while “psychopathic”, aka sociopathic, means that a person suffers from a personality disorder in which he or she has no conscience, no morals, but is perfectly sane.) What’s scarier than a psychotic-slash-psychopathic clown? How about an IMMORTAL psychotic-slash-psychopathic clown! That described CREPITUS, the central figure in the forthcoming movie of the same name, starring the incredible Bill Moseley (of THE DEVIL’S REJECTS fame).
Here’s the official synopsis: “Seventeen-year-old Elizabeth and her younger sister Sam are thrust into circumstances more terrifying than life with their abusive, drunken mother when they are forced to move into their deceased Grandfather’s house. Frightened beyond belief, they are forced to learn horrible things about their family history. Never mind the ghosts in the house, there is something far worse that takes an interest in them…a cannibalistic clown named Crepitus.” Cannibalistic? Immortal? Sounds like a vampire to me. (There is nothing in the synopsis that refers to Crepitus being immortal, but he is referred to as such in all the press materials I’ve seen, so that’s good enough for me.)
CREPITUS should be out later this year.
