Clowns are pretty damn scary to most people, which is strange when you think that they’re supposed to bring joy to kids. But Jon Watt’s Clown is not about fun and games; this clown means business.

 

A father takes the role of the clown for his son’s birthday party, but finds it hard to get out of character when he discovers the suit it slowly becoming a part of him. Featuring the always brilliant Peter Stormare and produced by Eli Roth, Clown is definitely worth picking up.

 

Release date: Available now on DVD and Blu-Ray

Trailer Roundup: February 2015

Clown

Poltergeist

Remakes and reboots can either be brilliant or terrible, and when you’re messing with a horror classic like Poltergeist, well you’re playing with fire. With horror veteran Sam Raimi (Evil Dead, Boogeyman, Drag Me To Hell) at the helm, you know this is in good hands.

 

The trailer certainly looks pretty damn crazy; there are quite a lot of glimpses at some pretty mad things. Hopefully not too much has been given away, but we’ll have to see when Poltergeist hits theatres later this year.

 

Release date: In cinemas 24th July (UK)

 

The Lazarus Effect

Who would have thought that bringing someone back from the dead might have negative consequences? Olivia Wilde is taking no prisoners in this trailer for The Lazarus Effect

 

The trailer unfortunately spoils the deaths of at least two characters from the looks of it, but still a decent trailer - if an uninspiring premise.

 

Release date: UK release date TBA

 

Crimson Peak

Acclaimed director Guillermo del Toro (Pacific Rim, Pan’s Labyrinth, Mama) teases his upcoming gothic horror in this mysterious trailer for Crimson Peak. Featuring the ever brilliant Tom Hiddleston, Crimson Peak tells the story of a newly-married young couple in early 19th century England.

 

Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska) begins to wonder if her lovely husband, Sir Thomas Sharpe (Hiddleston) and his dilapidated mansion may have more to them than meets the eye. Guillermo never disappoints, so this is definitely one to watch out for.
