Wrinkles the Clown

Documentary comedy-horror on Wrinkles the Clown, the clown that Florida parents hire to scare their misbehaving children.

In late 2014, a low-res video of a person in a clown mask emerging from underneath a sleeping child's bed appeared on YouTube and went viral. More videos followed, along with a phone number to hire him for "behavioural services." Soon an entire genre of YouTube videos of kids filming themselves calling him is created, and over a million messages are left at the number. But who is Wrinkles, and why is he doing this?

Wrinkles The Clown is an intelligent, thought provoking deep dive into a profoundly contemporary type of terror.

[T]he "Wrinkles the Clown" doc is still fairly horrifying. From the alarming reports of copycat clowns to the many scenes of youngsters reacting to Wrinkles rumours, this movie's a reminder that even abstract concepts can have a dark, persuasive power.

While it hardly sells Wrinkles as a culture-shaking phenomenon, this modest doc will play best to those who enjoy being creeped out by him enough to suspend their disbelief.

Wrinkles the Clown is a documentary that frequently entertains, but lacks true insight into the viral phenomenon.
