Bill Moseley Stars As A Creepy Clown In ‘Crepitus’
Crepitus, from the minds of Eddie and Sarah Renner, is set in a haunted home, where a cannibal clown lives in the basement. This November, you’ll be invited in…
Crepitus made its World Premiere, in 2018.at the Spooky Empire Film Festival, where it won “Best Feature.” Now, Indican Pictures will bring this terrifying tale to theatres this November and DVD stores this December.
In the story, a teenage girl and her younger sister escape their trauma filled home. At their grandfather’s place, Elizabeth (Caitlin Williams) and Sam (Chalet Lizette Brannan). They learn about their history and the ghosts that haunt their family. But, something even more sinister lurks below – Crepitus. Crepitus always speaks a warning before eating his latest: “your kid is a burden, your kid is a pest, your kid I will kill and consume like the rest!” Now, Elizabeth and Sam will have to stand-up to this murderous clown, if they hope to survive the secrets that live in the darkness.
Crepitus has a cast that includes genre icon Bill Moseley (3 from Hell) as the clown.
Actress Eve Mauro (“Age of the Living Dead”) also stars. Along with Chalet Lizette Brannan (Cyborg X) and Darren Barcomb (Krampus: The Devil Returns).
Indican Pictures will debut the film on November 1st, in theatres in ten theatres. That including Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Dallas, Denver, and others followed by its December DVD release. Rated Restricted, Crepitus is one clown styled horror film that does not fool around.
In director Haynze Whitmore’s Crepitus, horror icon Bill Moseley plays the role of an immortal, child-eating clown. So it’s needless to say been on our radar. We’ve learned today that the Ginger Knight Entertainment film will World Premiere Friday. 10/26 at the Spooky Empire Film Festival in Orlando, and ahead of the premiere comes a new festival trailer.
Crepitus is a medical term to describe the grating, crackling or popping sounds and sensations experienced. That under the skin and joints or a crackling sensation due to the presence of air in the subcutaneous tissue. Similar to cracking your knuckles. Makes sense given the creature, Crepitus (Bill Moseley) is exactly that: A gnawing fissuring sound in the darkness beneath the unsettling house in which he dwells.
Welcome to creepy town! Where two sisters displaying carved X’s on their foreheads live and never leave.
Seventeen-year-old Eli (Caitlin Williams) cares for and protects younger sibling. Sam (Lizette Brannan) as they exist day-to-day in a dilapidated old house with their violent alcoholic mother (Eve Mauro).
While they search for answers to the troubling sounds and invisible entity that seems to follow Sam within the creaky old abode. Eli unravels the disturbing truth that has blanketed the family for a long time. Components revolving around the disappearance of the father, outbursts that consume their mom. And other eerie inklings of nastiness emerge into a torrent of taboo…all pointing to visions of Crepitus. Is he real?
The plot is strong and significant while pieces of uncomfortable memories harbour Eli’s thoughts, exposing the family. That of cult-like status to indulge the force that holds them hostage.
While Mauro’s sheer madness is fun to watch escalate with disgusting eating habits and frequent slaps to the girl’s faces. The real hero is obviously Bill Moseley. Crepitus comes to frightening light with each appearance and snarky smirk.
As far as downfalls go, the adorable Sam is pretentious and void of emotion. When faced with life-threatening danger. She shows as much fear as seeing a small spider scamper across the floor. Eli is a bit more seasoned, however, she hits the opposite side of the spectrum. That as an over-exaggerated brooding teen wanting to escape without a plan in place.
In the film…
“Seventeen year old Elizabeth and her younger sister Sam are thrust into circumstances more terrifying than life. That 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.”
Eve Mauro, Chalet Brannan, Lance Paul and Caitlin Williams also star.
