‘All the Fear of the Fair’
Coulrophobia is a 2014 British horror feature film directed by Warren Speed (Zombie Women of Satan) who also stars. The movie also headlines Pete Bennett, Daniella D’Ville, Roxy Bordeaux, Leela Thompson, Ana Udroiu, Makenna Guyler, Chris Harrison, and Steve Haze.
An on-the-run twisted family of circus performers live in the remote Scottish highlands, miles away from civilisation. When a team of female Roller Derby players go camping just a bit too close to them all hell breaks loose…
” …the bizarre costumes and characters ameliorating what would otherwise have been tedious brutality. The victims are a roller derby team but, despite some skating shots topping and tailing the main story, that’s completely irrelevant, sadly negating the ‘Circus freaks vs roller girls’ high concept tag-line. British horror regular Bennett steals the show as a crazed jester.” MJ Simpson, British Horror Revival
“ …Coulrophobia almost seems like a film Rob Zombie might have made before he lost his way and started churning out trash like 31. Comparisons to House of 1000 Corpses are inevitable, and I absolutely mean that as a compliment. This is one of the most entertaining killer clown films in quite some time.” David Gelmini, Dread Central
” …this British indie film is for those who have a sense of humour and won’t take it too seriously. Those wanting to see gore will get enough to fill their roller skates here. Nudity level is reasonable with plenty of bosoms to make a nun blush.” Peter Hopkins, Horrorscreams Videovault
” …the switch here is that the clowns aren’t the killers, with one exception. It’s the victims that are dressed as clowns before being subjected to abuse. Thankfully, the film doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s a messed up, over the top nightmare and it knows it. The cast, most of whom have only this film to their name, know it too and have fun with the material.” Jim Morazzini, Voices from the Balcony
Released on DVD on November 13th 2017, via LunaRock Distribution.
Shot June/July 2014, the film was temporarily retitled All Clowns Must Die during post-production.
