Olympic gymnastics coach Francine Lake and her twelve gorgeous students train on the Island of Crete. The rigors of training preclude most sexual activity with the locals, thus the girls spend their evenings in quiet frustration. Likewise repressed is training-school janitor Ulysses, a notorious peeping tom. When one of the girls is sexually assaulted, Ulysses is the most likely suspect. It turns out, however, that the film's true antagonist is much closer to the situation than it first appears. Upon further investigation, it is found that the rape may have been related to a Cretan ritual of the "Bull."

Terrible production value, even for a found footage movie, boring stories, and unlikeable characters. An anthology horror movie works best when the stories each have their own unique flavor, topic, or monster about them. This whole thing just feels more of the same. Not to mention the wrap around story finishes up before the vignettes. Some of the stories try to have their own flavor, yet when all strung together with such similar flavors, they all start to taste the same. You wouldn't want to get 32 free samples of vanilla when they're are rocky road, birthday cake, and razzle dazzle cherry would you? That's just a waste.

Jamie C (kr) wrote: A good old naval battle film that's good in the action but lack of any real story as it's just mostly 2 ships hunting each other until the final showdown which was brilliant and very entertaining, Russell Crowe was brilliant as he always is and he makes the film go by smoother, The film tries to make us care about the cast more than we would like and it does make for slow watching at times but it's still entertaining with some great acting and very well shot battle scenes, Yet another movie I waited too long to see, Don't do the same as me, It's worth a view.

Tim B (au) wrote: I know a lot of people associate this film with the fact that its lead character was molested by the film's director, but that doesn't mean that there are elements to like here as a horror movie. There's some really awkward moments with young boys in their underwear and even a bare-ass with one of them. It's obvious that the director threw it in there for his own twisted pleasure. Gross. However, there are some creepy and fun moments in the flick. First off: clowns are creepy. This movie knows it and there are many chill inducing moments with clowns hiding in the shadows or the background of the picture. The fact that we don't actually SEE the villains before they get geared up makes all the more effective in the fear department. I also appreciated how the plot progressed in terms of 'fate' (always a fascinating subject for me) and how the past will come back to bite you in the ass. The protagonist has a deathly fear of clowns but is also destined to face it... sooner or later. Why not throw the worst case scenario at him to overcome that fear? SURE! Salva keeps the pace lighting quick, the movie never slows down. He also has a strong hold on chase scenes and build up. Lastly, gotta comment on the lighting. It was terrific in the night time scenes. So kudos to his WORK, at least... Nathan Forrest Winters does alright, but I find he struggles with some of his more intense scenes. Brian McHugh actually does pretty good as the middle child. At least he tried to be a peacemaker and he's definitely the most tolerable of the three. It was hilarious to see Sam Rockwell. He's come a long way since this movie and he does play a dickhead rather well. Michael Jerome West aka 'Tree' is intimidating and frightening in his scenes. Well done. On the downside, the last half of the flick messed up a lot. For such a strong build up, I was expecting a more intense payoff. Instead we get over-the-top music blasting, a lot of silly falls/hits (to the villains) and if anyone does die, it's never actually shown. Annoying! So in all, the chills and build-up are there, it's just too bad that in the end, Clownhouse didn't pay off. I leave it at an above average mark. Out.
