1.0 out of 5 stars Final Draft March 3, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I never liked James Van Der Beek. I dont know why but I think it was because he was the bully in the film Angus. Considering I dont think I only saw the film once on tv and ten or more years ago, it stuck with me. Anyways, you can read the synposis of the movie. The acting is bad, the movie is slow paced, and just plain sucked. I wouldnt recommend anyone watch it.

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm not sure September 30, 2007
Format:DVD
This is without a doubt the weirdest movie i've ever seen. When i first picked it up and looked at the cover i automatically thought (evil looking clownusually equals good horror movie) But this is kinda the opposite. I'm not saying this is a bad movie, just very hard to write about as it's so strange. A writer locks himself in his appartment to write a story about "Punchy the Clown" ( on the cover) A clown who he saw kill himself at a circus by accidently burning himself to death. From then on he begins to lose his mind. He starts talking to pictures of people he used to know and then he begins to see them as if they were really there. The people include. His ex wife, a sexy callender girl, a high school bully, and a former friend who stabbed him in the back when his brother died. One by one he types on his computer the fate of each and has the clown do the killings. I don't want to give too much more away, nor can i say i recommend this movie or not. Just don't expect to understand it.

3.0 out of 5 stars I ENJOYED July 21, 2008
Format:DVD
THIS IS A VERY SHARP AND INTERESTING FILM. THIS IS ABOUT A YOUNG WRITER PAUL TWIST PLAYED BY JAMES VAN DER BEEK. HE HAS TO WRITE A HORROR MOVIE IN 18 DAYS. HE LOCKS HIMSELF IN HIS LOFT AND BEGINS. THE HORROR IS HE IS HAUNTED BY HIS PAST. A DARK CLOWN, A MENACE A NIGHTMARE FROM HIS CHILDHOOD. HIS EX- WIFE, HIS BROTHER AND HIS OWN DARK DEEP SECRETS.

I THINK WHAT STANDS OUT IN THIS MOVIE IS THE ACTING AND THE WONDERFUL MIND TRIP OF A PLOT. YOU SEE THE REALITY OF MAN TURN UPSIDE DOWN AND TWIST INTO A WORLD THAT HE SEEMS TO IMAGINE YET CAN NOT CONTROL.
AS HE WRITES HE SEES THE PEOPLE IN HIS LIFE WHO HAVE CAUSED HIM PROBLEMS THERE WITH HIM IN THE LOFT. HIS MIND STARTS TO UNRAVEL , HIS THOUGHTS BECOME CLOUDED BY IMAGES OF VIOLENCE AND INSANITY.

I WAS VERY WELL PLEASED WITH THIS MOVIE IT WORKED IN SO MANY WAYS. I LOVE THE ONE ACT FEEL TO THE MOVIE. THE END WHEN HE IS LOCKED INSIDE THE LOFT WORKS THE MOVIE WITH BEAUTY AND A TWISTED SENSE OF HORROR WHICH IS INSANITY ITSELF.

THE STORY BECOMES APART OF HIM AS HE ACTS OUT THE HORROR THAT HIS MIND HAS CREATED. THE DEPRESSION OF HIS LIFE, THE FEEL OF FAILURE BECAUSE OF WRITERS BLOCK. THIS MOVIE IS NOT ABOUT GORE OR MASSIVE BLOOD, IT'S THE MIND AND THE AFFECTS OF HOW FAR THE INNER THOUGHTS CAN BECOME REALITY, HOW EACH ONE IS MIXED INTO THE PUDDLE OF DARKNESS AND HOW THAT DARKNESS CAN TAKE OVER.

I REALLY SEE NO FAULTS WITH THIS MOVIE ACCEPT SOME SLOW SPOTS AT TIMES BUT THE FILM COMES TOGETHER IN THE END AS A WELL PLAYED OUT ONE ACT WITH MORE TO IT. IT SHOCKS ME FROM ALL THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS I HAVE READ ABOUT THIS AND I WONDER WHY PEOPLE WHERE SO NEGATIVE I THOUGHT THE MOVIE CAPTURED INSANITY TO THE POINT AND MADE THE VIEWER TAKE THAT TRIP ALSO.

2.0 out of 5 stars I never knew clowns could be so boring August 26, 2010
Format:DVD
This movie was surprisingly dull. I kept waiting for something to happen, and it just never got up a good head of steam. I was going to say that it was overly long and could have used some more editing, but I see above that they list the running time as 90 min. I swear it felt like closer to 3 hours. It dragged and dragged. There were random scenes of weirdness, but it never launches itself into any sort of supernatural horror mode. Barely even qualifies as pschological drama. The jump edits and scene transitions were very jarring, I suppose to mimic the characters tenuous grasp on reality, but it just felt like poor editing. I know they were trying to do something different, a clown hitting people over the head with a bag of oranges and staging their deaths to look like suicide, but they should have worried more about making it interesting, not just different. The clown is a complete non entity. He's there, but only as interesting as a department store maniquin. I only give this an extra star because James Van Der Beek at least gives the material the old college try, there just isn't much to work with. This fell so flat it should probably only get one star, but I'll be kind.

James Van Der Beek - best known as the titular character on 'Dawson's Creek' - grows a beard to show us he's all grown up in this psychological thriller. Van Der Beek is very good, but the film isn't. Van Der Beek is a writer who tells his actor friend he has an idea for a horror film about a dead clown taking revenge on the children who laughed at him when he accidentally immolated himself at the circus. His friend gets him an appointment to subit his script to his agent and gives him a deadline as to when it has to be done. So he locks himself away in a loft and sets about writing while being haunted by some not-so-traumatic events of the past (which aren't very well-explained).

Two big problems - one is that the actor character is far more interesting than Van Der Beek's character (at times I wished the movie would shift gears and make the movie about the edgy, self-absorbed actor instead of the needy, bland writer). The other problem is the story he's writing about the killer clown is a far better story than the main story. I would have rather seen THAT movie!

It starts off good, but after too much time goes by with nothing happening it becomes tough to keep caring or even stay awake.
