Devil’s Reject Turns Killer Clown in Northern Michigan for ‘Crepitus’
The horror movie ‘Crepitus,’ featuring horror icon Bill Moseley as the titular cannibal clown, is set to resume filming in Northern Michigan later this year and you could be in it.
‘Crepitus’ tells the story of a cannibalistic clown that has a taste for children. Sounds familiar, doesn’t… IT? You see what I did there? I kid, I kid.
Anyway, the film is being helmed by first-time director Haynze Whitmore of Petoskey, and will be filmed entirely in Cheboygan, Michigan. It’s pretty cool to see filmmakers still choosing to shoot in The Mitten, despite Governor Rick Snyder gutting the state’s film tax incentive program almost two years ago. When all is said and done, we may have another name to add to our list of popular horror films shot in Michigan.
Whitmore hasn’t done too bad for himself in the talent department either. Scoring someone with as much horror pedigree as Bill Moseley for your big bad is pretty impressive, especially for your first feature. You may not know Moseley by name, but you definitely know his work. He’s probably best known for his role as Otis, the head of the Firefly clan, in Rob Zombie’s ‘House of 1000 Corpses’ and ‘The Devil’s Rejects.’ He’s a frequent Zombie collaborator, but has a long list of credits including horror classics like ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2′ and ‘Army of Darkness.’
Don’t let the pros have all the fun though, because the Facebook page for the movie is running a contest that will let four lucky winners get their face on the big screen too. See the details in their post below, and look for the film in Fall 2017.
