Kill Giggles is a story, a screenplay, and (with your help) a feature film like no other. And yes, while many storytellers and filmmakers may say that, particularly within the genre realm of horror, we actually mean it for one very simple reason—nobody has ever done this before... literally. 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 "The HPJ Trilogy," "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.
And that's where YOU come in!!! You see, we don't care if you've got more money than you know what to do with AND you hate clowns!! Or even if if you have fistfuls of cash and actually, for some very bizarre reason that you might want toget checked out, LOVE clowns!?! Because either way, we want YOU to join our circus!! We are currently seeking out private investors to help us finish the first phase of our fundraising campaign so that pre-production can begin. There will also be an extensive crowdsourcing campaign that will comprise phase II. Help us rid the world of clowns!
Next summer, it’s time to send in the clowns… to die.
