Wrinkles the clown

Festival 2020 cancelled.

Ever since that office birthday party that got out of hand, we’re not too fond of clowns. Stephen King certainly didn’t help either. Luckily for us, we’re not living in South-Florida, where Wrinkles the Clown roams the streets at night… He’s more than some urban legend to frighten your kids. You can actually pay him to come and scare the bejesus out of your beloved little ones. It all started in 2014, when a nightmarish YouTube video went viral. We see a little girl peacefully sleeping in her room when, suddenly, a clown crawls from under her bed… His phone number could be seen all over the city and Wrinkles got flooded with desperate calls of parents urging him to eat up their naughty toddlers. This documentary takes a peek behind the mask and make-up: not of the clown, but of the society that has parents paying a dude in a creepy clown suit to traumatize their kids so they’d behave…
