review by
Mike Haberfelner

20 or so years ago, horror clown Balthazar Kane (Tim Abell) disappeared after burning a man to death.

Now 8 people from all walks of life (Jonathan Lipnicki, Victoria Konefal, Mark Christopher Lawrence, Nicole Arianna Fox, Ted Monte, Cameron Jebo, Sinjin Rosa, Erin Micklow) who only have two things in common, they have a large social media following and are in rather desperate need of a quarter of a million Dollars, receive a sinister invitation to the new "Circus Kane", a haunted house style attraction in the middle of nowhere run by no other than Balthazar Kane. And whoever manages to spend a night in the place receives above money. Of course, they are all quick enough to see through the machinations of the place and are amused more than anything at first, even when one of them (Sinjin Rosa) gets sawed in half for real, they are sure it was only trickery and he was only a plant. Thing is, shit soon gets real when more challenges await them, like making it through a hallway filled with barbed wire or swinging pendulums, and they get hurt for real. And don't forget Kane's minions, the killer clowns, who kill for real. And soon what could have been a mildly amusing fairground attraction becomes dead serious, as Kane isn't likely to let many of his "guests" go ...


Ok, excuse for the silly pun in advance, but Circus Kane isn't exactly Citizen Kane - but that doesn't mean it isn't a lot of fun, because that's exactly what it is, a very entertaining rollercoaster ride that never tries to hide the fact that it is just that and even at times pokes fun at it (heck, one might say the premise itself is doing that already), plus it has everything that the genre fan might expect from a movie like this, jump scares, inventive deaths, over-the-top gore scenes, creepy clowns, grotesque characters and macabre details, and it's all carried by a very fast-paced yet light-footed directorial effort. Plus, however formulaic the plot as such might be, the ending will most certainly surprise.

In all, it's just really fun genre entertainment!
