review by
Mike Haberfelner

It has been a year since Jenna (Hannah Douglas) found the brutally butchered body of her roommate Zoe's (Dani Tonks) boyfriend Rick (Thomas Loone) in their apartment, with Zoe gone and presumed dead, and only gradually has her life gone back to somewhat resembling normalcy, also thanks to her best friend Amy (Abigail Wisdom), who has got her a job as barmaid at her parents pub. But Jenna's constantly reminded of the past, by people like Charlotte (Leah Solmaz), a friend of Zoe's making her responsible for Zoe's death, and conspiracy theorist Owen (Richard Buck), who insists Zoe's still alive and held captive somewhere. Obviously, Zoe could do without all of this.

That all said, the killer of Rick, the grotesquely masked Clownface (Philip John Bailey) is still out there, and is indeed holding Zoe captive as his plaything - and Zoe hasn't given up on trying to escape, but to no avail.

To get Jenna's mind off things, Amy takes her to a party, and things go really well, especially when Charlotte shows up as well to apologize to Jenna for all the things she has said - and then Clownface shows up, slaughters most of the guests, and takes Jenna captive - and now Owen is her only hope. Thing is, Owen isn't exactly a man of action, and Clownface seems to have superhuman strength ...

 

At its heart, Clownface is of course a slasher movie, and it follows the formula rather closely, down to a grotesquely masked villain with almost superhuman strength, jump scares aplenty and gory killings. However, what sets this one apart from the pack is that it's more character-driven than your usual genre fare, focuses on Jenna's attempt to overcome grief, giving the film a heart not necessarily associated with the slasher genre. And thanks to a directorial effort that finds the right balance between intimacy and violence and a solid cast that grounds the movie this is one fine genre ride.
