Otis Driftwood appears to be taking a leaf out of Captain Spaulding’s book, as Bill Moseley will be donning the white makeup to play a killer clown in the upcoming film Crepitus. So look no further if you were craving to see more psycho clowns onscreen to make up for the Joker’s abbreviated appearance in Suicide Squad.
After a successful Indiegogo campaign, filming will begin in January with director Haynze Whitmore at the helm. That’s still quite a ways off, so keep an eye on their Facebook page for more updates in the meantime.
Seventeen-year-old Elizabeth and her younger brother, Julian, are thrust into circumstances more terrifying than life with their abusive, drunken mother when they are forced to move into their deceased grandfather’s house.
Frightened beyond belief, they are forced to learn horrible things about their family history. Never mind the ghosts in the house; there is something far worse that takes an interest in them… a cannibalistic clown named Crepitus.
A crunch, a munch, a jingle
He’ll make your spine a-tingle.
It’s your fingers he wants to eat
That clown says they’re tender and sweet.
And when you’re ten,
He comes again,
For the remaining bits of your meat.
The moon will be bright,
And if you catch a sight
Of his crooked ol’ Crepitus pout,
Then you better run fast
‘Cuz he’ll snatch your ass
And EAT ALL YOUR INSIDES OUT!!
