You find yourself alone in the woods, up ahead is a clearing, the sweet smell of warm sugar fills the air and a distant sound of a music box playing drifts through your ears. As you head closer, the smells and sounds overtake you, until you find yourself standing in the clearing. You are surrounded by large tents and signs featuring acrobats and oddities. Looking around you notice there is something wrong. Despite the sounds and smells, this circus is abandoned. By the time you realize the danger you are in it is far too late.
If clowns aren’t scary enough, director Haynze Whitmore has cast the legendary and lanky Bill Moseley to play the titular character about an immortal cannibal clown in Crepitus. If that isn’t enough to scare the pants off you, then you might have seen one too many horror films. Just kidding, there’s no such thing.
Seventeen year old Elizabeth and her younger brother, Julian are thrust into circumstances more terrifying than life with their abusive, drunken mother when they are forced to move into their deceased Grandfather’s house.
Frightened beyond belief, they are forced to learn horrible things about their family history. Never mind the ghosts in the house, there is something far worse that takes an interest in them … a cannibalistic clown named Crepitus
Crepitus stars Bill Moseley as Crepitus, Mike Hard, Jackey Hall, Raiden Moore, Caitlin Williams, and Lance Paul
Crepitus is produced by Lance Paul through his production company Ginger Knight Entertainment and The Whix Company, which consists of director Haynze Whitmore and screenwriter Eddie Renner, who penned the script with his wife Sarah Renner.”
Crepitus recently announced an Indiegogo campaign, which has a month to raise the $4,500 needed to make the film right. Whitmore and his team are dedicated to making this dark and creepy film in their hometown of Cheboygan, Michigan, proving that film doesn’t only happen in large cities with bustling film industries. Perks range from downloadable copies of the film to placing your photo in the film itself.
