This is not a hoax.
If you are in the minority of people who actually thought Sharknado was a good film, then you’ll be delighted to learn that director and writer Todd Sheets is adding a new film to the franchise.
If you’re with the rest of us and think that Sharknado is so so bad it’s hilarious, you’re more likely to be amused to learn that Sheets’ upcoming feature is called Clownado.
We don’t want to give away any spoilers, but we suspect that it might have something to do with tornadoes and killer clowns…
Watch the gory and ridiculous trailer here:
“The goal with Clownado was to make a damned good, scary and splatter-filled, nonstop roller coaster ride,” said the director to IMDB. “It’s something new, fresh, original and unique, but also familiar. Using only Practical Special Makeup Effects and old school styled Visual Effects, Clownado has the vibe of classic horror movies we love.”
“Think Evil Dead, Dead Alive, Bad Taste and Texas Chainsaw Massacre if Lucio Fulci was directing, all mixed in a swirling storm of insanity,” he continued.
“Now add in scary supernatural Clowns and the cinematic visual style known as film noir – intense composition with shadow and light – and a bit of that incredible John Carpenter suspense, and you have an ambitious, over-the-top gorefest epic! Don’t judge a book by it’s cover – this is certainly no comedy.”
Clownado is due for release later this year. Hooray!
