“The circus has come to Dusty Gulch, Kentucky, and now children are vanishing. A body count of parents and caretakers skyrockets in the wake of these disappearances, as does the roll of dead victimizers of children – those known to abuse and neglect. Panic soon grips the remaining townspeople, and reports of clowns at the abduction sites lead a few desperate citizens to the circus for answers. Led by El Goro, a retired rodeo clown with more than a few tricks up his sleeve, these unlikely defenders include a down-and-out single mom and her daughter, a reformed alcoholic who lost custody of his own children, and a moonlighting birthday party buffoon whose customer base is quickly dwindling. They must conquer that primal fear of clowns that all humans seem to share in order to live long enough to learn a way to stop them. All the while, the question remains – are the imbalanced clowns avenging spirits for innocent children…or simply face-painted monsters wantonly murdering for their own amusement?”
