6 months ago: With high school about to end for them and their friends,
Joey (Rocky Petroziello), Chris (Kris Marconi) and Brian (Sam Rovin)
decide to play a stupid prank during an end-of-term party in the woods, a
prank that includes clown-obsessed Joey popping up in a clown mask and
scaring everybody shitless. Unfortunately, high school jock Mike (Tim
Merli), who used to bully Joey all during high school, gets so scared that
he beats up clown Joey - beats him to death, actually. Everybody is
shocked ... but no one really wants to call the police, because the kids
are all underage and have been drinking quite a bit. So they bury him and
pretend nothing has happened. Only Joey's girlfriend Fay (Shauna Fahad) is
heartbroken, but for some reason even she remains mum.
everybody involved in the "accident" 6 months ago had had big
plans about going places, somehow nothing seems to have worked out, and
everybody seems to still be under the impression of the tragedy. And then,
somebody seems to kill off the kids, one by one by one, somebody in a
clown mask ...
Laughter is a pleasant trip back to a
time when slasher films were still unburdened and unpretentious fun: Sure,
the story doesn't make 100% sense, the killer is easy to figure out (as
well as his sole accomplice), the story doesn't stray too much from the
expected path ... but on the other hand, the movie has also got a pretty
creepy killer (a clown of all things), some pretty brutal killings, it's
paced well enough and contains just enough humour to keep things
light-hearted without becoming moronic.
Fun, actually (which is not
meant as a pun regarding the title).
