A Bit Messy But Weird and creepy Enough To Earn A Spot In

""The Clown Murders"(1976) featuring an early performance from a young and un-funny John Candy is one of those foggy oddball but some-what creepy films that only the 1970's could cough up. The film seems like it doesn't quite know what it wants to do with itself yet still manages to have a eerie feel to it that seems to consistantly grow throughout. The climax, even though pretty tame held up to todays standards(though all over the place as well) still makes you feel somewhat dirty & abused...like being forced to witness something that you shouldn't have.
In the end a film like this may not be for everyone but for those of you who (like myself) really have a sweet tooth for those obscure lost 70's weirdy flicks "The Clown Murders" is pretty much a keeper."
This is a though one

"This movie is very creepy and the clown killer is awesome, very creppy and provides the best parts of the film when he actually shows up. But the cover art is rather decieving, it looks amazing but to show a cool graveyard with a clown & Machette full of blood makes people rather dissapointed after seeing this film. Over all a strange film that as the previous reviewer stated is unsure of exactally what it wants to be, if the Clown was in it more and had more scary parts like he was limited to this film would have gotten 5 stars."
