Exclusive Clip: Bill Moseley Doesn’t Clown Around in Big Top Evil

Maybe there is some clowning around, given it’s a circus from hell and all, but you get the idea.

We are inching closer and closer to the worldwide release of Big Top Evil, a cannibal clown horror movie from independent filmmaker Sean Haitz. Set for release on August 27th, the film features appearances from a few recognizable genre faces, such as 3 from Hell’s Bill Moseley and J. LaRose (Saw III, Insidious), and is set to be a bloody good time based on what we have seen so far.

Fortunately, we’ve been given an exclusive look at Moseley in the film to share with our readers and you can check it out in the video embedded above! If that’s not enough for you, you can also view the below official trailer and teasers to get yourself ready for a little (to say the least) blood and gore.

The use of clowns in Big Top Evil is more than meets the eye as well. Not only do they provide a nice, surface-level creepiness, there are also plenty of genuine callbacks to the real-life circus world. Several of the locations used boast historical significance, such as Sarasota, FL being the home of John Ringling and the former winter headquarters of the Ringling Brothers Circus. Additionally, the movie features world-renowned circus acts as seen on America’s Got Talent.

The film follows a man named Jay, who is serving a life sentence for the murders of his friends. However, the story he tells of what happened is a very different one – and one that is very difficult to believe without having been there. Five youths, lost on a road trip to the location of the infamous Mangrove Slasher, end up being pursued by a cadre of cannibal clowns. Is this some sick story or is this what actually happened? Only time will tell…

Big Top Evil is directed by Sean Haitz and Chris Potter, with the former also producing and co-writing the screenplay with John Morrisey. Starring is Haitz alongside Jisaura Cardinale and Austin Judd, with appearances from Bill Moseley and J. LaRose. Sharon Carole is executive producing.

The film will be released on August 27th on both Blu-ray and DVD, but you can pre-order your copy over on Amazon today. Try not to let this one turn you off from the circus, but we’ll understand if it does!
