The horror/thriller Behind the Sightings has been picked up by Tommy V Films, who will be releasing the film later this year. The movie is is based on 112 hours of found footage of clown sightings, all of which was recorded in 2016.
Executive producer Tommy Vlahopoulos explains, “Clowns have traditionally been associated with slapstick style performance, comedy or mime, but there has always been a dark side to a clown. his is not fake news, ‘Behind the Sightings’ is centered around the terrifying clown sightings that shook the world last year, and an eager couple swept up in all the phenomenon. This is a very newsworthy subject, especially with all the continuous clown sightings.
Behind the Sightings follows Todd and Jessica Smith, two filmmakers from Raleigh in North Carolina, who set out to produce a documentary exploring the highly publicized, creepy clown sighting epidemic, which was investigated by local law enforcement. As the young married couple venture into Peachtree Way, Nash County, in search of clowns, what they found was far from funny.
