Filmink Presents: Wrinkles the Clown

November 30, 2019
In Cinemas for 1 Night Only on Friday December 13

In late 2014, a terrifying video of a person in a clown mask emerging from underneath a sleeping child’s bed appears on YouTube.

The description below the video claims that the clown is named “Wrinkles,” that he lives in southwest Florida, and that he’s been hired by the child’s parents to frighten her for misbehaving. The video goes viral.

Soon, more mysterious videos of Wrinkles appear online. Wrinkles becomes internet lore – a whole genre of YouTube videos of kids filming themselves whilst calling him appears online, and over a million messages are left at the number.

Voicemails range from disturbing to hilarious to terrifying – parents use the number to terrify their children, kids who are obsessive fans of creepy clowns reach out to make a new friend, children threaten to inflict wildly creative violence if he comes anywhere near them.

But who is Wrinkles, and why is he doing this?

With incredible access to the mastermind, Wrinkles the Clown explores the phenomenon and the myth behind the mask.

Embracing the public’s insatiable appetite for creepy clowns – from IT‘s Pennywise to DC’s Joker, cut through with a healthy dose of Catfish, acclaimed documentarian Michael Beach Nichols (Welcome to Leith) has made a film that is as entertaining as it is frightening.

Filmink Presents is bringing this phenomenal documentary to cinemas for 1 Night Only on Friday December 13.
