CLOWN KILL is a British horror film in which a woman is terrorised by a man dressed as a clown.

Violence

After a woman's drink is spiked, a man follows her into a toilet cubicle and rapes her. There are multiple scenes of sustained sexual threat after the rapist drugs her drink a second time and stalks her through a building. There are also crude verbal references to sexual violence, and several women are groped, stalked or subjected to verbal sexual harassment.

Multiple characters are stabbed and one is beaten to death with a spade, resulting in blood spurts and bloody aftermath detail. A character stabs nails into another man's eyes. There are images of naked female torsos from which the heads and arms have been severed; the torsos have words cut into the skin of their chests.

Other issues include crude verbal sex references. There is frequent use of strong language ('f**k'), in addition to milder terms including 'bitch', 'prick', 'cock', 'twat', 'tits', 'shit', 'bastard', 'dick' and 'piss'.
