Twitch brought this clip to my attention on Wednesday morning and I owe them a debt of gratitude. Cheah wrote, directed, produced, starred in, and probably catered this odd melding of Hong Kong's heroic bloodshed action cinema and slasher movies about a guy who's "not a cop, more like a vigilante" on the hunt for the clown-masked killer who murdered his girlfriend. Cheah isn't effing around, either, because he tells one character "I don't want to understand him. I just want to kill him."
Picking the greatest part of this clip is all but impossible. Is it the odd way the voice-over guy pronounces words (the way he says Killer Clown at the end cracks me up), is it the "this makes porn acting look phenomenal" performances in the first scene? Maybe it's the incredibly stilted yet earnestly delivered dialogue? Could it be the fact that trailer is comprised almost entirely of scenes with people running? Perhaps it's the classic sequence where the knife-wielding maniac gets lazy and pulls out a machine gun instead? The options are endless.
I have no idea when Killer Clown is coming out, but I assure you I will be seeing it. Julian Cheah, you've got a lifelong fan in me--and I'm only half joking. Jump beyond the break to see the trailer.
