The Jack in the Box – UK, 2019 – preview

‘Once you open the box, you can’t escape it.’

The Jack in the Box is a 2019 British supernatural horror feature film about a cursed creepy clown doll.

Written and directed by Lawrence Fowler (Curse of the Witch’s Doll), the Up a Notch Productions movie stars Ethan Taylor, Robert Nairne, Lucy-Jane Quinlan and Philip Ridout (Dogged).


When a vintage Jack-in-the-Box is unearthed and donated to a museum in the heart of the woods, it’s not long before staff member Casey Reynolds has reason to believe the creepy clown doll inside has a life of its own.

As Casey discovers his colleagues are dying one-by-one, will he find a way to end the nightmare, or will he too fall victim to the box’s curse?
