Nothing really special. Also don't be fooled by the cover as the clown is really only a small 10-15 minute portion of the movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Cover drew me in but the film didn't deliver July 5 2009
By Jay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
When a horror movie posts a creepy looking clown on the cover odds are I'm going to check it out. When looking at scary movies with clowns only Clownhouse, It, & Killer Klowns from Outer Space are real standouts for my taste. Despite that fact I still tend to check out all these weak clown horror attempts in hopes of finding a classic. Unfortunately in this case the clown on the cover was something to lure you in since it only played a role for about 10 minutes of the film. I've noticed this is a pretty common complaint about the film and overall will aid in more negative reviews.

The film turns out to consist of a few different poorly written stories all tying together at the end. The first story is about a girl Shelby & her boyfriend rob as they become part of a disastrous convey trip. The second is the best part of the film where the clown appears for the first and only time while a girl named Tabitha is babysitting. The third installment is a girl Lisa who goes home with a guy after a night at the bar to never come home again. Now all the girls in the stories wind up being linked through a ridiculous situation back in elementary school along with their killer.

It's pretty much a waste of an hour and a half with very few enjoyable parts. The killer himself is so pathetic there is no way you could find him scary. He has this annoying laugh he does through that becomes so annoying you want jump through the tv and strangle him. It wasn't all terrible though thanks to the girls in the story. All 3 actresses did a really solid job with Tabitha(Katheryn Winnick) leading the pack by being the most believable. The clown segment itself was pretty creepy and should have been the premise for the entire film. If they had focused primarily on the killer being dressed up as the clown the film would've had a better chance at success.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Truth Sept. 6 2009
By Benjamin Kroell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
If you're reading this review, it is because (1) You are thinking about watching this movie but are skeptical as to whether or not you should, or (2) You have already seen it and want to see what other people think. If you (1), take this to heart. I just got done watching this movie and it did absolutely nothing for me.
Amusement doesn't draw you in whatsoever. All the principles of a good movie are completely absent. There is no rise of action, no climax, it just simply keeps the same pace the whole movie. I can respect the attempted story line, as it does make an attempt at a thick plot, but it completely fails. The scenes don't seem to connect and it turns out to be really sloppy. This is honestly all i got from tihs movie: A weirdo from back in grade school seeks revenge (for whatever reason, motives are never revealed) This guy just dresses up as different people and puts on acts then, as you probably guessed, he reveals himself and laughs an obnoxious laugh. Seriously, he laughs this entire movie. This movie should be called "Annoying Laughter".
The best part of this movie is towards the end... While he is in the act, the main girl (I think) starts laughing, he is immediately touched by this laughter and frees her from her restraints and for a moment there is a romantic and touching connection between the two. Haha that was amusing. This is not a Clown killer movie by any means. Don't let the cover fool you. Well, you have been warned, if you ignore this review and proceed to rent or buy this movie, this review will soon become a painful reality for you. Don't say i didn't tell you so.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great little horror flick May 11 2011
By phreejax - Published on Amazon.com
I don't get all the negative reviews -- this movie actually has a lot going for it. And personally, I've always liked this kind of tripartite structure, whether the three separate stories interconnect at the end (as is the case with this film), or connect only through an actor or general theme (as with my favorite, 1955's excellent "Three Cases of Murder"). I was entertained by "Amusement:" it is not just a flick to help waste your time, and the folks involved in its making clearly wanted to make a good movie, despite the budget.

As mentioned, "Amusement" consists of three stories with somewhat open endings, all three of which are resolved in a common dénouement at the end. Other than the first story, which I felt was the weakest of the bunch, "Amusement" is mostly carried by the main actor, Katheryn Winnick. Despite her demure clothing throughout, Winnick is decidedly more Playboy-bunny (well, a very athletic bunny -- she is after all a Taekwondo champion) than ordinary-girl-next-door, and at first I thought she was slightly mis-cast. I was wrong -- not only does she give a truly solid performance (notably better than the norm in these sorts of roles), her inherent sexuality seemed to enhance the sense of a strong, tough woman who will survive no matter what. Winnick is much more than eye candy here; she actually carries the film.

The sets deserve a special mention -- they are above the norm. The pacing, and focus on telling a coherent story (really hard, I would think, in a movie structured like this) are also above-average.

4.0 out of 5 stars UNDERRATED - IT'S BETTER THAN MOST MODERN HORROR MOVIES Nov. 25 2010
By Explorator - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I was pleasantly surprised by this creepy, unpredictable and seriously underrated horror movie. I can't understand how any true horror fan couldn't like what is on display here. It keeps up a decent pace without the obligatory 20 minute character intros we often have to suffer through, instead treating us to dark and eerie scenes dripping with atmosphere and dread that rarely let up. In fact it's hard to know who the main character is until half way through the movie because it's so unpredictable and major characters drop like flies when you least expect it.

There are some EXCELLENT twists and there is a nail-biting scene of torment with these two tied up girls at the end that culminates in a stunning finale! My only gripe with it would be that I wish the killer had kept their clown mask on toward the end instead of showing their real face so much during the final scene. Other than that, if you're a fan of atmosphere, suspense and some decent but quick scenes of blood & gore then you should be quite 'amused' by this interesting and fast paced horror flick.

The haters are way off base here folks. This is certainly better than most of the crap we dedicated horror fans endure.

1.0 out of 5 stars What? Nov. 28 2011
By Jeremy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
What a mess.

This movie was boring, predictable, and poorly written. Even after saying that I haven't touched on the biggest problem with the film -- it made absolutely no sense. I'll expand on that later. First let me point out the other flaws.

The movie is divided into three separate stories, each one accomplishing the impressive feat of being worse than the last. These three stories "converge" at the end for a final section that is so bad and nonsensical that I can only hope it's some type of avant-garde joke. Each story is basically its own cliched horror film: a killer is loose on the highway; a killer terrorizes the babysitter; a killer has a girl trapped inside an old building.

All of these stories are infuriating, mostly because the victims are unfathomably retarded. At one point, the babysitter escapes the house into the front yard. She decides that the best thing to do is hide in the tool shed. Guess how that turns out. The girl in the third story suspects her friend is being held captive inside an old building. She sends her boyfriend in to investigate. Hours later, when he doesn't come back, she decides to sneak in by herself. Guess how that turns out. Later in the film, one of the characters manages to stab the killer in the neck. He falls to the floor, and of course the girls all run away to try to find a way to escape. Guess how that turns out. Honestly, how many times do we have to see these tired scenes play out with their complete predictability and impossibly stupid characters? It's just lazy writing, totally unbelievable, and makes me immediately lose all interest in whether or not the characters survive.

Anyway, let's assume that you're an idiot and this all sounds appealing to you because you like horror movies. I STILL say to steer clear of this one. Why? Because it makes absolutely zero sense. Just trust me, it doesn't. Yes, I paid attention. Yes, I understood the connection between the three stories. The movie does not make a lick of sense. I don't know how to explain why without giving away plot details, so let's just say that I will be very impressed if anyone can answer a single one of these questions (spoilers below):

1. If the guy in the back of the convoy was the killer, who was the girl in the semi-driver's truck, why did she look scared, and why did the semi-driver lie about being alone?

2. How could the girl's body smash into the main character's windshield when the killer was driving behind them?

3. Why did the semi-driver try to run over the boyfriend?

4. Why is the killer in the first story a different person than in the third and fourth? I could be wrong on this one, maybe it's the same guy with a different hairstyle, but as best as I can tell these are completely different actors. In any case it's extremely confusing.

5. How did the psychologist woman come to be at the abandoned house/tunnel without realizing that it wasn't a real police station and that no one else was around? If the killer had previously been a patient of hers, how could he trick her into thinking he was an FBI agent? This part made no sense at all.

I could go on and on, but it's pointless because there are no answers. Whoever wrote this didn't put an ounce of thought into it. Horrible.
