The release of Grindhouse in 2007 started a trend of fans making their own fake trailers for horror movies that don't really exist, inspired by Eli Roth's Thanksgiving and Edgar Wright's Don't. One of those faux trailers that came along in the wake of the film was Jon Watts' Clown, which claimed to have the involvement of Eli Roth. In truth, Roth had nothing whatsoever to do with the film, which many horror fans were bummed to discover wasn't actually a film at all.
That is... until now.
To make a long story short, Roth ended up seeing the trailer, and was so impressed with it that he helped Watts turn the idea into an actual feature length horror film. Set for release sometime in the near future, Clown centers on a father who puts on a clown costume to entertain his son, and soon finds himself unable to take it off. The curly wig fuses with his real hair, the red nose becomes a part of his own and even the makeup can't be washed off. Turns out, the spirit of an evil killer clown has overtaken the man, and it won't be happy until he kills everyone he loves.
Check out the just released official trailer for Clown, and you'll also find Watts' original faux trailer below it!
