Horror Review: Gingerclown (2014)


A group of high school students are having a great time near Hollywood Hills at the weekend when they bump into the Loser from their school, Sam, who’s just on his way home.

Tim Curry, playing a clown again.... Who wouldn't want to see this?!


Now, I do apologise but I must calm your excitement. Despite the films amazing cast of Tim Curry, Brad Dourif, Lance Henriksen and Michael Winslow you never actually see them, they just do the voices for the monsters in the movie. 

Don't let that deter you though, yes it may just be voice over work but it's still awesome casting and who doesn't love Tim Curry's laugh?! Plus Brad Dourif's voice work is outstanding and you can't help but think of 'Chucky'.


The film is an extremely low budget affair and the acting is a little stiff but what it lacks in that department it more than makes up for in others. The film has a retro 80's feel to it and with the amazing animatronics and puppet work in the film then you'd be forgiven for thinking it was an actual 80's flick.

If I'm honest the film isn't the greatest but for what it is, it's fun. I have seen a-lot of bad movies in my time but this is easily one of the best bad movies, if you're a Horror fan then you'll know exactly what I'm on about.


"Gingerclown" is a fun flick that's best enjoyed with a few alcoholic beverages and a few like minded friends, just be open minded and keep your expectations very low.
