After the evening of trick-or-treating during the Halloween, babysitter Sarah was surprised to witness that the kids, Timmy and Tia have taken the unmarked VHS tapes in their bags. The kids convince Sarah to permit them to view the tape that contains 3 tales, each of which featured the homicidal clown called as Art.
It features the young lady known as Casey, who has been drugged and abducted by Art their Clown while standby for the train. She awakened to locate herself chained in the area with the two other ladies, Sara and Kristen. When Sara was dragged away by the chain, Kristen and Casey decided to follow where the chains lead. Upon getting in the ending part of the handcuffs, Casey attempted to break the handcuffs with the big rock, but was interrupted by the deformed humanoid that dismembered Kristen with the cleaver. The humanoid innocently frees Casey through severing her chain with a cleaver, but she then soon discovers herself being tied down and being surrounded by the hooded figures. Right after watching the forms removed the fetus from a womb of the restrained pregnant lady, Casey was raped by Satan. Right after a segment ended, Sarah sends Timmy and Tia to bed, and settles to carry on watching the tapes with her.
Presents the woman named as Caroline, who had just transferred into the latest countryside home. In the evening, the bright object crashed near the home, and the power outage takes place. Caroline locates that her car and her phone are malfunctioning, and suspected that somebody other than her inside the house. She abruptly received the call from John, her husband; however, the link is soon broken. Then, she later discovered that she has been stalked by the alien, and after administering to disorient it, then, she hides in the small room under the staircase. There, the phone rings again, watching the alien to the location. As she was dragged off by an alien, she pulled the sheet off of a painting of John, revealing the image of the Art the Clown.
It features the costume designer driving on the isolated road. Discontinuing at the gas station, she locates the attendant angrily kicking out Art, and who had actually smeared feces over the walls of a gas station’s bathroom. An attendant fills the tank and heard the noise from the inside of a gas station while providing a costume designer direction. He goes in to investigate, and if he will not come back, the costume designer come into a building and saw the Art chopping up an attendant’s body with the hacksaw. She flew and the chase ensues, and then Art finally appeared behind her seat in the car and attempted to suffocate together with the cellophane. She slammed on a brake and then escapes, barricading her inside the large shed. Art hollowed out the way into a shed, and slashed her with the makeshift whip that is composed of sharp devices. She stabbed Art in his eye with the scalpel, and in at the back with the knife. She once again escaped and is pulled out by the man who tried to drive her into the close by a police post. Art followed them in the auto and shoot the man in his head with the handgun, causing the car to crash into a tree. Some time later, the costume designer regained consciousness on the crude operating table, then finds that Art had amputated her breasts and limbs and stamped misogynistic obscenities into the body.
The film is an anthology movie. Like most of the other horror anthologies, it has three main tales, plus the wraparound story that tied them together. The director chose the format to illustrate the pre-existing short movie, so only its second story and a wraparound are really new. With regard to the reputation, there seemed to be three main complaints about this movie: 3) The acting is just bad, 2) The film is very gory, and 1) The director used the previously created materials.
Each of them is simply negated and the actually the acting is pretty good. It is just strong enough to allow the audience to suspend their disbelief that is after all a game’s name. If there is one thing you will learn from reading the posts and reviews and elsewhere, it is that people will always complain about anything. And the truth is this movie is an entertaining, tense horror film that is alive with inspired direction, creativity, and realistic effects. Its rating is not fair and unfortunate. If you wanted a polished horror movie that is long on the plot and that every shot is perfectly framed, then see something else. However, if you want to enjoy and be scared, then, this movie is for you.
