Greensboro, NC – Everyone has seen and heard the story of the maniacs, the monsters, the serial killers who dress up as clowns to spread fear and terror. But what if there was a serial killer OF clowns, terrorizing them with fear instead? From the frenetic mind of Jaysen P. Buterin, writer and director of the award-winning films Between Hell and a Hard Place, Don’t Let the Light In and The Corner, comes Kill Giggles – a harrowing Hitchcockian horror story that will take a timeless terror trope and turn it on its rainbow wig-covered head.
With over 13 award-winning short films under his belt, Buterin is ready to face one of his worst nightmares. No…, not his first feature, but rather the floppy-footed foul fiends who will be starring in it. “I’m absolutely terrified of clowns, I have been almost my whole life,” says Buterin. “Conversely, I’ve loved movies for just as long, if not longer, so I thought what better way to exorcise the demons?” And with that, the idea of killing Giggles was born.
While the cameras (and the clown heads) won’t start rolling until next spring, Mad Ones Films has already put together a plethora of promotional stills, posters, teasers and trailers that they’ll be releasing throughout the year until that happy time happens. Because, while all the world may love a clown, no one ever said it had to be alive.
