Name That Trauma:: Reader L.J. on a Rocky Clown Kitchen

May 15th, 2013 by unkle lancifer · 4 Comments

I had to have been like 2 or 3 b/c my sisters hadn’t been born yet so it must have been around 1980 or so- my parents took me (WHY??) to the drive-in with them, and all I remember of the movie were clowns, horrible, terrible, clowns, I think one (at least) had a knife, and a scene in a kitchen with the doors getting all blocked up with rocks, lots and lots of rocks- I think the entire kitchen ended up being filled with the rocks, but my parents kept trying to make me lay down in the back seat so I couldn’t watch, also it’s been over 30 years, so I’m a wee bit fuzzy on it all. If you can identify this craziness for me, I’d be full of gratitude.

    Based on the year, I’m thinking it might be “The Clown Murders” from 1976???

    I’ve never seen this one so I can’t verify the rocks!

    Also, today’s framing images are by artist Cindy Sherman. If you google “Cindy Sherman clowns” you will be mortified. !!

    I was warned. I was warned, but I googled it anyway. As there are daydreams, are there also daymares? Because I think I am having one populated entirely with clowns from MOMA.

    DDD, I warned you!!!

    Bobby Keller on Facebook backs up “The Clown Murders” and also suggests Tiny Tim in Blood Harvest (1987). That might be a little late but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t watch it anyway…
