It’s been a busy week for the Eli Roth produced horror Clown: We have seen an amazing new trailer, some disturbing images and a brand new Italian poster for the vicious horror. Now comes news that the poster we brought you recently, which was for its home country of Italy, has been banned.
You will find the poster below, along with a new version which has now been accepted by the Italians. The new poster hides the scary image of the scarred up Clown behind black, almost mocking the bannnig.
Producer Roth took to Instagram to confirm the banning of what I think is a superb poster. He shared the poster with the caption: “Banned in Italy! This poster for #Clown.”
Clown is written and directed by Jon Watts, and co-written by Christopher D. Ford, with Eli Roth producing. The cast includes Peter Stormare, Laura Allen, Christian DiStefano, Elizabeth Whitmere, Matthew Stefiuk, and Andy Powers.
A loving father dons a clown outfit, wig, bulbous nose, and pancake makeup to entertain at his son, Jack’s (Distefano), sixth birthday after the clown-for-hire is a no-show. Unable to take off the clown garb, dad’s personality changes in horrific fashion. He and his family race to break the curse of the evil outfit before he undergoes a complete transformation into a homicidal killer with over-sized shoes.
