Dark Universe first heard about Behind the Sightings just a few weeks ago, which is a new film about the 2016 clown epidemic that shocked the world. Executive producers Tommy Vlahopoulos and Tom Sulkowski had recently acquired the rights to the psychological thriller film. Today, we bring you a glimpse at the project in the form of a teaser trailer.
“A young married couple, Todd and Jessica Smith, two filmmakers from Raleigh in North Carolina, set out to produce a documentary exploring the highly publicized, creepy clown sighting epidemic, which was investigated by local law enforcement. As the young married couple venture into Peachtree Way, Nash County, in search of clowns, what they found was far from funny.”
“Clowns have traditionally been associated with slapstick style performance, comedy or mime, but there has always been a dark side to a clown,” said Tommy Vlahopoulos. “This is not fake news, Behind the Sightings is centered around the terrifying clown sightings that shook the world last year, and an eager couple swept up in all the phenomenon. This is a very newsworthy subject, especially with all the continuous clown sightings.”
Behind The Sightings is expected for release in the later part of 2017.
