Pale immitation of Terrfier

This movie is very obviously a sad attempt at recreating Art the Clown from Terrifier. The first 5 mins of the movie there are 3 not so terrifying deaths. Nothing original about this movie. If you want to see a movie like this that's actually good I suggest to sticking with All Hallows Eve franchise. The absolute boring overtone of this movie is clearly evident the longer you watch. The mask should have been a dead give a away that this movie was going to be as dull and uneventful as The Black Phone. There was a lot they could have done to make this movie a success. Sadly it seems they put little to no effort into creating a new concept. Like all other scary movies that have come out post covid, this is surely a flop.

Should never have been made into a feature length film.

I remember watching a 10 minute short of this on YouTube around 6 or 7 years ago. It was clever, punchy and to the point. It worked as a short film, but just doesn't cut it as a 90 minute horror film.

There's not enough material to pad this out to a feature length film unfortunately. The 'Jester' doesn't seem as charming in this, that was one of the great things about the short version, he was a quirky, seemingly harmless fun and somewhat charming character who would ultimately do bad things and that worked. Here, right from the off, he's seen as some obviously sinister threat with absolutely no charm whatsoever.

Unfortunately the short on YouTube was so well received that many commenters were crying out for a feature length film. Well, they got their wish, and i hope they're happy, because this, is sadly very poor in many ways.

Total waste of time

This has to be one of the worst films I've watched, regardless of the genre. It immediately felt like a terrifier ripoff, but if it was made by The effects are awful, couldn't even be bothered hiding safety lines in the hanging scenes, the story is appalling and the acting even worse. You don't feel any connection to any of the characters, no explanation into the back story of the jester, or any of the characters really, so you're left wondering what's going on. The biggest let down though is definitely the acting. Most, if all, are relatively unknown and I can't see that changing. Delaney White plays the main character, and she's just awful, I mean truly shocking. I saw better at the local pantomime with my niece, I think she could probably do better in all honesty. I love a good low budget horror, you definitely don't need to spend millions to pull it off, but this felt like a high school media project. I'd avoid if at all possible, spend 90mins having a nap or go for walk, hell, watch the grass grow, it'll be better than this for sure.
