CLOWN is a horror film about a man who gets stuck inside a clown's costume and finds it turns him into a killer.

Injury detail

There are several scenes with strong injury detail, including a scene in which a child's body is shown lying on the floor, face-up, with the entire chest and stomach cavity opened up and a lot of blood and gore visible. There is also a scene in which a child's arm falls down a slide in a stream of blood, another in which the bone in a man's arm pops through the flesh and one where the lower part of a man's face hangs loose after his chin is ripped off.

Violence

There is violence throughout, in the scenes described above and in others, including a man shooting himself in the face and hitting a child with the blade of a circular saw.

The film also contains use of strong language ('f**k'), as well as other, milder terms such as 'shit' and 'bitch'.
