‘Send in the clowns’

Cleavers: Killer Clowns is a 2019 British slasher horror feature film written and directed by Mj Dixon (Slasher House and sequel; Hollower; Legacy of Thorn). It is a follow up to Cleaver: Rise of the Killer Clown (2015). The Mycho Entertainment Group production stars Georgie Smibert, Gemma Louise Troughton, Paul Rogers and Jessica Michelle Smith.


Jody Ann Howells (Georgie Smibert), a survivor of the Still Rivers Massacre is on the hunt for the man who turned her hometown into a nightmare, but a figure connected to that night may be her only hope in saving an all-American family who has found themselves in the clutches of The Cleaver (Paul Rogers)…


” …Mj and Anna Dixon have continued to push what can be achieved on a minimal budget over the years and has still continued to evolve. Thankfully, Cleavers: It Runs in the Family is no different as he continues to raise the bar from independent film making. With a great story, twisted humour and plenty of blood, it once again surpasses the expectations of what fans expect.” Blazing Minds

“Given the limited budget, the special effects and gore are pretty good and there are some creative kills, with plenty of cleavers of course! Paul Rogers is clearly having plenty of fun as our evil clown and although at times a Freddy-lite he does a good enough job with his cleavers.” Bloody Flicks

” …as most films by Mj Dixon, this one relies heavily on atmosphere, achieved by effective music and Dixon’s trademark play with the colour scale, but it’s also got suspense and jump scares in all the right spots, and doesn’t hold back when it comes to violence…” Search My Trash


Cleavers: Killer Clowns is set for release in the UK by 101 Films on DVD and VOD on 12 August 2019.
