It looks like child-eating clowns are in vogue, because following Stephen King's IT, there's another clown movie on the horizon.

Even creepier than Pennywise is Crepitus – played by Bill Moseley, who starred in Rob Zombie's cult horror movies House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects – a killer clown who marks out the kids he's after by putting an 'X' on their foreheads.

Also named Crepitus, the film follows 17-year-old Elizabeth and her younger sister Sam, who – yep, you guessed it – have been selected by cannibalistic clown Crepitus as his next victims.

The film's director, Haynze Whitmore, told Horror Fuel: "I believe that Crepitus will be unique and dementedly charming. This film won't be full of quick, cheap thrills but an intense storyline that will keep the viewer glued to their seat.

"Lately I've watched some of these new horror films that claim to be the scariest thing you will ever see, but tend to fall short. Eddie Renner and myself really want to make a truly, intensely haunting film that people will be talking about for years to come."
