Behind The Sightings Makes Found Footage Out Of Clown Epidemic

Posted on: June 2nd, 2017

It was really only a matter of time. Last year’s spate of ‘clown sightings’, which started out as an amusing news story then got very silly, very quickly, has become the direct inspiration behind a new horror film, entitled Behind the Sightings.

According to Deadline, Tommy V Films has just acquired the rights to the film with a view to putting it in US cinemas in October.

A young married couple, Todd and Jessica Smith, two filmmakers from Raleigh in North Carolina, set out to produce a documentary exploring the highly publicized, creepy clown sighting epidemic, which was investigated by local law enforcement.

Behind the Sightings was directed by first-timer Tony Cadwell, from a script by himself and filmmaker Norman Alston. Keep your eyes peeled for more on this found footager in the coming months.
