Press Release: Kill Giggles

We here at FDTC are excited to bring you this first look and press release from filmmaker Jaysen Buterin for his new film Kill Giggles!




Greensboro, NC – Everyone has seen and heard the story of the maniacs, the monsters, the serial killers who dress up as clowns to spread fear and terror. But what if there was a serial killer OF clowns, terrorizing them with fear instead? From the frenetic mind of Jaysen P. Buterin, writer and director of the award-winning films Between Hell and a Hard Place, Don’t Let the Light In and The Corner, comes Kill Giggles – a harrowing Hitchcockian horror story that will take a timeless terror trope and turn it on its rainbow wig-covered head.

With over 13 award-winning short films under his belt, Buterin is ready to face one of his worst nightmares. No…, not his first feature, but rather the floppy-footed foul fiends who will be starring in it. "I'm absolutely terrified of clowns, I have been almost my whole life," says Buterin. "Conversely, I've loved movies for just as long, if not longer, so I thought what better way to exorcise the demons?” And with that, the idea of killing Giggles was born.



While the cameras (and the clown heads) won't start rolling until next spring, Mad Ones Films has already put together a plethora of promotional stills, posters, teasers and trailers that they’l be releasing throughout the year until that happy time happens. Because, while all the world may love a clown, no one ever said it had to be alive.

SYNOPSIS: Tommy dos Santos wasn’t born a psychopath, nor was he made into a sociopath. He was something entirely new, and he was walking his own path – a path that will run red with the blood of the foulest most fiendishly frightening creatures ever conceived by man!



No longer do they have the starring role in our nightmares, it is now the clowns who are the prey, running for their lives from a killer who won’t stop until every single one of them is dead. As Tommy’s body count rises, he finds himself getting closer and closer to what he thought was a ghost, the once great clown king known as “Giggles,” and wonders… if laughter can’t die, how about Giggles?
