Stephen King’s ‘IT’ has definitely raised the bar really high for all upcoming horror movies and TV shows. It has also made Pennywise one of the scariest and creepiest clowns we have ever come across. But, if you thought that Pennywise wasn’t eerie enough to trigger your fear of clowns aka coulrophobia, then get ready to be freaked out as a new clown is in town, and he is bloodcurdlingly frightening. And the latest trailer of the upcoming horror flick, ‘Crepitus’ has cemented that fear in our hearts.

Earlier this year, a teaser trailer of ‘Crepitus’ was released and it told the tale of a clown who enjoys eating children. He targets his prey byan X on their forehead. Check out the previous trailer here.
Now, a new trailer has been released which has taken gruesome to a whole new level. The film is about a 17-year-old girl, Elizabeth, and her younger sister, Sam who become the next target of Crepitus. How they fight the evil in a desperate attempt to save their lives, weaves the rest of the plot. Bill Moseley plays the cannibalistic clown in this movie, which is being directed by Haynze Whitmore. Bill Moseley has earlier starred in cult horror flicks like ‘House of 1000 Corpses’ and ‘The Devil’s Rejects’ and we are highly excited about what he brings with him to the table. The movie also stars Eve Mauro, Chalet Lizette Brannan, Caitlin Williams, lance Paul, Taya Parker and Johnny Stevenson. Check out the new trailer here.
For those who don’t know, ‘Crepitus’ is a medical term used to describe the sound or sensation felt when joints are popped or cracked. If this doesn’t creep your senses out, we wonder what can. The trailer looks disturbingly bone-chilling and only time will tell if it really lives up to its name and scares the shit out of us like Pennywise did or turns out to be yet another disappointing take on the horror genre. But, we are convinced after looking at the trailer that the chances of latter are bleak. The movie is expected to release in October in the US and it does not surprise us that it coincides with the month when people celebrate Halloween.
