Review: Clown slasher starring Margot Kidder (Black Christmas) and Christopher Plummer. Some students work during Christmas vacation to reopen a theater where, decades before, a killer clown ( not from outer space) killed one of the student’s opera-singing mom. Of course, history will not repeat itself and the killer clown won’t return to commit gruesome and creative acts of slashery upon the students. There’s no way that could happen… Canadian film, shot in the Burton Cummings Theatre in Winnepeg ( Burton Cummings is the lead singer for the Canadian rock band The Guess Who).
