A psychiatrist holds a therapy session at her estate to treat a group of teenagers for their fear of clowns. The sessions turns into a nightmare when Snuffles the Clown escapes from the Asylum and joins the group to deal out his own brand of psychopathic therapy. A delusional patient back at the Asylum, known only as Patient X, knows what's happening but no one will believe her or heed her warnings as she vacillates between insanity and reality.

I'm giving Geraldine Winters some leeway, as this was her first time directing a movie. Clownstrophobia is about what you would expect for a first-time filmmaker with a shoestring budget. It's campy, the cinematography is sub-par, and the low production value really shows.
The film delivers a good bit of gore and torture, courtesy of a psychopathic clown. There's a tiny bit of nudity, though unfortunately not on the part of milf Suzanne Lauren as hot psychologist Dr. Janelle Wethers. First-time actress Rachel Blair (as Ashley) is unbelievably pretty and sexy, making the movie more watchable.
I'll give credit to Winters for doing her homework; per a commentary I watched, she did a good bit of psychology research to prepare for the film. The premise of the movie isn't really bad, it's just that the presentation is weak. Most of the cast is inexperienced in film, and many scenes plod along much longer than they should.
The story had some potential, it just needed a real budget and an experienced cast. Winters has a great deal to learn about directing and cinematography, but it's not a terrible start (unless you actually worked on the movie like the other reviewer who not surprisingly gave it 5 stars). I'd say watch it once before deciding to buy the DVD.
