    I really enjoyed the film (yes, I actually watched it so I would know what the hell you were talkin about this time). I can’t believe that I have managed to miss it for sooo long. It’s one of those I’ve always meant to watch but never managed to catch. A bit like Chopper Chicks in Zombie Town. But this is ment to be feedback…

    No, it isn’t meant to be scarey (the film, not the feedback). They had so many opportunities to scarey it up, but didn’t. A couple of gallons of fake blood and a chainsaw wouldn’t have pushed up the budget too far. Hell, the little heads only managed to ruin her jumper. That said, there was one bit that I found truely unnerving. The bit with the girl in the burger joint. No, not Pedo the clown outside. The girl!!! She really gave me the creeps.

    I am a bit disappointed that they didn’t do more with the balloon… um… twizzeling. Balloon dog? Crackin idea. But they could have done so much more with that.

    But Jamie. Oh Jamie, Jamie, Jamie. You are such an angry, negative young man. All you did was pick pick pick (I’m shaking my head sadly as I type this). Would’t you get bored if you just went round turning people into candifloss? Wouldn’t you want to throw in the odd hand shadow dinosaur to spice up the day? But you are right about the biker bar thing. Except for Fright Night. And Poltergeist. Oh, and Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, The Omen, Death Ship, Children of the Corn and Road House. But I think they are the only ones without. Oh, and Aliens. (I may be wrong about Road House).

    As for Clown Town. If it doesn’t turn out Film Noir style, Bogart inspired detective movie set in a town only populated by clowns, I will be truely disappointed.
