From the preamble, The clown remains active in the entire movie. Although there are very few clutches or curiosity of paranormal sort of stuff. The starting of the movie shows Police is looking for a suspected clown in the town on the eve of Halloween and advising the citizens to be vigilant.


Both Tara and Dawn played by Catherine Corcoran due to hunger went to restaurant midnight; orders some pizza. As soon as they order the meal, the Clown arrives. Tara who previously had a smell of some suspect gone stunned after seeing that clown entering the restaurant. While the other one Dawn, looked happy as always. The clown sits next to the girls, staring at Tara like he is going to eat her. Making funny expressions that aren’t actually funny. And you ain’t gonna believe the clown proposed Tara with a pathetic ring. That was unexpected!


There are several scenes that are recommended not to be watched. Like the Terrifier hacksaw scene in which Dawn was cut in two pieces from bottom to the top (skull). The scene was spilled with blood.

Hold The Dark Plot Explained


To be honest, the movie doesn’t fit in the type of horror. It is more focused on fierce factor rather than portraying haunted or paranormal sort of stuff. Most of the part in the movie has the killing stuff with a feeble script. But I would rate screenplay and direction more than the script of the movie. The clown acted really well from the inception till the end. Cinematography is also good.
