Doctor Wethers (Suzanne Lauren) runs an asylum that specializes on people who suffer from fear of clowns, basically because her whole family was killed by Snuffles the Clown years ago. Nurse Clara (Lena Hurt) also suffers from fear of clowns, and she is assigned to watch over mysterious Patient X (Ebru Yonka), who has an imaginary clown friend who tells her to do crazy things. Four teenage stereotypes - the nerd (Chris Luperi), the bad boy/jock (Billy Macarther), the goth chick (Amanda Bochko) and the cheerleader (Rachel Blair) - are brought to the asylum from the juvenile penitentiary, and wouldn't you know it, they're scared of clowns as well. Too bad then that Snuffles the Clown has just been released from prison, and he decides to pay the doctor's asylum a visit. Of course, pretty much everybody is killed by Snuffles in one gruesome manner or another, but the nerdy teen ultimately manages to kill Snuffles.

Now it's all over, right?

Wrong, because Patient X has just killed the nurse and shows she can be just as crazy as Snufles, and now that his position has become vacant ...

 

I love the nonsensical title of this movie, but the actual film attached to the title is nothing but a mess: The whole thing is based on a plot that lacks narrative stringency and loses itself in a few too many subplots, carried by characters you can't get yourself to like let alone care about played by only moderately talented actors, and the directorial effort is risk- and atmosphere-free and rarely ventures outside of the very basic. Plus, the fear of clowns, prominently presented int he movie's title is never really made the subject of the film here - I mean if there's a serialkiller loose on the premises who just happens to wear a clownmask, are you really afraid of the mask, or the fact he's coming after you carrying deadly weapons?
