    ★★★

    As much a killer clown movie as The Fly is a monster movie, Clown smartly focuses on the transformation of the human dad becoming a possessed killer clown, a rather original story with some dose of black humor. While it ultimately suffers from a lack of commitment to any of its ideas, it’s bold enough to go where Friday the 13th: Jason Lives is afraid to go.

    I can’t imagine how disappointed my 18-year-old self would be in me right now. I was an insufferable film snob and took great pride in being labeled as one. By 18, I’d seen 28 out of 45 Ingmar Bergman films, written a script clearly lifted from the pessimistic likes of Cries and Whispers (the dialogue was so ridiculously virulent it was immediately reported to the principal’s office).

    Besides thinking about moving to Faroe Islands and working for Svensk Filmindustri and…
