Remember when everybody was seeing creepy clowns last year? We figured it was only a matter of time before the phenomenon was turned into a horror movie, and we’ve just learned that there’s already one coming our way this year.
And no, we’re not talking about IT.
Deadline reports that Tommy V Films just nabbed the distribution rights to Tony Cadwell’s Behind the Sightings, a psychological thriller inspired by the recent rash of sightings that was humorously dubbed a full-blown “clown epidemic.” They’ll be bringing the film to theaters in October.
In Behind the Sightings…
A young married couple, Todd and Jessica Smith, two filmmakers from Raleigh in North Carolina, set out to produce a documentary exploring the highly publicized, creepy clown sighting epidemic, which was investigated by local law enforcement.
Tommy Vlahopoulos produced with Tom Sulkowski.
