World Premiere | Director Adam Krause, Cast and Crew in attendance for a post-film Q&A
Remember the photos of a horrifying clown in Wisconsin that went viral and ended up on the nightly news scaring the hell out of viewers all across the world? This marketing stunt for Adam Krause short film, GAGS, sparked a nationwide resurgence in the clown-roaming phenomenon (yes, that's a thing). Now a feature film designed to send those with coulrophobia (look it up) into a life-threatening panic, a mysterious clown named "Gags" appears in Green Bay, setting off a night of madness in which four separate subplots -- involving a reporter, a right-wing podcast pundit, a pair of cops, and a trio of troublemaking teens -- converge to solve the creepy case. Fans of "killer clown" cinema (clownsploitation?) will appreciate this flick's new wrinkles, as well as its sly sense of humor that takes aim at socio-political issues and the news media (as represented by indie horror star Lauren Ashley Carter).Yes, you will be scared shitless, especially when you discover Gags' true intentions.
