“While Clowntergeist plays close to the vest, teasing out what is a very standard creepy clown, and then tacking together several strings of strange logic in order to give the story any meat, it is unclear whether this is earnest or presented as an avant-garde take on what we traditionally expect of a horror film.” Bloody Flicks

“Ribcage’s backstory is absurd (“A paranormal sh*tstorm”) and there’s nothing frightening about a clown in a daylight kitchen scene being poked with a broom by our heroes and sicking up black goo. It’s an awkward hybrid of clown-slasher and supernatural horror, with feeble terrorisation via balloons and live radio.” Horrorscreams Videovault
