Trailer Talk: Wrinkles The Clown. By Megan Williams
It seems that, since ‘IT: Chapter Two’ has just been released, the end of 2019 is going to belong to various clown films. One particular film that is going to be coming out (interestingly, on the same day as ‘Joker’) is ‘Wrinkles The Clown’. This documentary will look at the clown who is far from jolly! Working for 65 years, Wrinkles the Clown is specifically contacted by parents to scare their misbehaving children in America.
Because he’s been ‘working’ for 65 years, this documentary uses archive footage from older video recorders, phone calls and voice messages, as well as Skype calls and Youtube videos. The amount of different technology that it’ll showcase will give viewers of various ages their own opinions and perspectives on the terrifying clown. This will also be a unique glimpse into a quickly growing phenomenon, and for people who wish to know more about the mysterious character.
‘Wrinkles The Clown’ looks creepy, strange but fascinating. As someone who has heard of the clown but knows next to nothing about him, I am intrigued. Late 2019 is definitely bringing in the clowns!
‘Wrinkles The Clown’ is in cinemas 4th October 2019.
In a November 2015 interview with the Washington Post, Wrinkles claims to be a 65-year-old retired and divorced veteran who moved to Naples, Florida, from Rhode Island sometime around 2010. Not satisfied with being a “boring retiree,” Wrinkles bought his distinctive clown mask online and started to make stickers and business cards promoting his telephone number. Over the next few years, Wrinkles grew in popularity. Florida teenagers posted photos taken of Wrinkles on social media and Wrinkles himself said that he now receives “hundreds of phone calls a day”.
