This is one of those low budget efforts that has it’s heart in the right place and really tries, but unfortunately falls short, even thought you are rooting for it. Story finds pretty young Emma (Brittany Belland) being stalked by a demon possessed clown in her small boring town. Not the kind of excitement she was hoping for, especially as clowns are not Emma’s favorite thing.

Flick is directed by Aaron Mirtes from a weak script by he and Brad Belemjian. The story never really comes together even after a last act reveal and the editing is very choppy making one wonder what is exactly going on at times. Despite these flaws in the film-making process, Mirtes tries hard and does get a few effective moments even if Ribcage the Clown (Eric Corbin) is not as scary as we’d like him to be. The cast seems to be having a good time, especially perky lead Brittany Belland and that helps a little with the flick’s creative flaws. Also stars Monica Baker and Sean Patrick Henry as Emma’s co-workers and friends.
