Kill Giggles (pre-production)

 

Synopsis

Tommy dos Santos wasn’t born a psychopath, really, nor was he made into a sociopath, per se. He was something entirely new, and he was walking his own path – a path that will run red with the blood of the foulest most fiendishly frightening creatures ever conceived by man… CLOWNS!

No longer the madmen and monsters that nightmares are made of, it is the clowns who are the victims now, running for their lives from a killer who won’t stop until every single one of them is dead. As Tommy’s body count rises, he finds himself getting closer and closer to what he thought was a ghost, the once great clown king known as “Giggles,” and wonders… if laughter can’t die, how about Giggles?

From the mad movie-making mind of writer/director Jaysen Buterin (“Between Hell and a Hard Place,” “Don’t Let the Light In,” “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.

All the world loves a clown... no one ever said it had to be alive. Next summer, it’s time to send in the clowns… to die.

 

Mad Notes

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? And with that one derailing train of thought in my head I sat down to write, and eventually direct, Kill Giggles – a harrowing Hitchcockian horror story that will take a timeless terror trope and turn it on its rainbow wig-covered head.
