With a great cast, great idea and some early clips and a stunning first poster, Gingerclown 3D was shaping up to be one mighty horror event. How one day of news can bring all those hopes crashing down, in a big way! The first full length trailer landed yesterday, and I am still trying to get over how incredibly poor it is. The cast, especially the bullying kid at the beginning, do not appear likeable at all. In fact, I want that bullying chap to get killed off before I even have to watch the film! There is very little horror action, and the pacing of the trailer is dreadful. To make matters worse, a new poster has also been revealed, it too is embarrassing to be honest. I have included to first fantastic poster and the new dull poster to this post, see if you can figure which one came first.
Gingerclown 3D is directed by Balazs Hatvani and stars the voice talents of Tim Curry as Gingerclown, Brad Dourif as Worm Creature, Sean Young as Nelly the Spiderwoman, Lance Henriksen as Braineater and Michael Winslow as Stomachcrumble. If you would like to see the previous clips so that this trailer does not put you completely off watching the film, click here.
“1983: A group of high school students are having a great time near Hollywood Hills at the weekend when they bump into the Loser from their school, Sam, who’s just on his way home. Sam would do anything in order to get Jenny’s attention, one of prettiest girls in school. Unfortunately she’s also the girlfriend of the school’s bully, Biff, the quarterback of the football team.
Biff and his buddies are keen to take Sam to the old abandoned amusement park to make him prove his courage as part of their initiation ceremony. They involve Jenny in their cruel game as the grand prize of the competition. Sam accepts the challenge, but the girl wouldn’t let him go in by himself; she follows him into the amusement park and a night they’ll never forget.
Because in the old park, hidden in the darkness, are frightening and somewhat eccentric monsters who love to torture innocent human beings while intensively annoying each other.”
Tim Curry (Rocky Horror Picture Show) voices “Gingerclown,” while Brad Dourif (Child’s Play) voices “Worm Creature,” Lance Henriksen (Aliens) as “Braineater,” Michael Winslow (Police Academy) as “Stomachcrumble,” and Sean Young (Blade Runner) as “Nelly the Spiderwoman.”
