When circus clown Big Ronnie (John O'Hara) catches his girlfriend
Savanna (Rachel Lagen) with another man (Christopher Preyer), he shoots
him but sees to it that her fingerprints are on the murder weapon, and
then makes her part of a circus act of his that't in either parts
demeaning and humiliating. So eventually, Savanna turns to witch Autumn
(Jeanne Silver) to put a curse on Ronnie - but something goes wrong, and
now Ronnie and his cronies become a gang of killer clowns who travel in a
tornado to - well, get wherever they want to massacre people next. And of
course, they soon pick up Savanna's trail with vengeance on their mind.
Hunter is a do-gooder on the road who seems to pick up persons in need
wherever he's going to, like black Elvis impersonator Dion (Antwoine
Steele), mistreated stripper Bambi (Dilynn Fawn Harvey), and Rachel
(Sierra Stodden), a girl on the run from a creep (Douglas Epps) Hunter
eventually sets straight. Unfortunately, Hunter and entourage have dinner
at the same diner Savanna has stopped at - when the clowns arrive in their
hurricane to exact revenge ... and kill everybody in their way. Savanna
sure gets hers, but instead of just letting her die, Ronnie replaces her
heart with a block of ice, which turns her into some cold-blooded killer
freak. Hunter, Dion, Bambi and Rachel manage to make it out of the diner
in one piece, but soon have to notice the clowns' tornado is following
them. Fortunately, they run into two storm chasers (Jeremy Todd, Millie
Milan) who know how to stop the tornado - but unfortunately their method
is more than just a little dangerous, and with the tornado on their tail,
our heroes don't know how much time they've left ...
Linnea Quigley plays a ruthless stripclub owner, Eileen Dietz the owner
of the diner under attack, and Joel D. Wynkoop a fearless pilot.
Despite the title, the resemblances of Clownado and Sharknado
are only very fleeting, but that doesn't mean that Clownado exactly
reinvents cinema or the horror genre or whatever - but frankly, reading
the title you probably haven't expected this anyways. And that's exactly
it, as Clownado stays very true to its title and delivers on that
premise 100%: It's a(n intentinally) silly low budget genre flick with
plenty of shocks, gore galore, over-the-top ideas, some tongue-in-cheek
humour, and an overriding feeling that it doesn't take itself too
seriously, without ever going moronic. And that some of the performances
are a bit wooden only helps with the film's B-movie feel. So what this
film is from beginning to end is a fun ride - maybe not more, but
certainly not less!
