Ratings Key



★★★★
= Excellent. The best the genre has to offer.
★★★
1/2 = Very Good. Perhaps not "perfect," but undoubtedly a must-see.
★★★ = Good. Accomplishes what it sets out to do and does it well.
★★1/2 = Fair. Clearly flawed and nothing spectacular, but competently made. OK entertainment.
★★ = Mediocre. Either highly uneven or by-the-numbers and uninspired.
1/2 = Bad. Very little to recommend.
= Very Bad. An absolute chore to sit through.
NO STARS! = Abysmal. Unwatchable dreck that isn't even bad-movie amusing.
SBIG = So Bad It's Good. Technically awful movies with massive entertainment value.

Clownhouse (1989)

Directed by:
Victor Salva

Three young brothers, whose parents are conveniently out of town, are terrorized by three escaped madmen masquerading as circus clowns. Director Salva shows some genuine attention to characterization and suspense and makes good use of cramped locations, without tacking on graphic gore.

Score: 6 out of 10
