The Clown Murders is a 1976 horror film directed by Martyn Burke. It was one of the earliest films in which John Candy appears. The Executive Producer was Stephen Stohn, who now produces the Degrassi: The Next Generation TV series.
Four friends put on clown costumes, kidnap one of their old girlfriends from a costume party and hold her in a remote farmhouse in what is supposed to be an innocent Halloween prank. Tensions flare quickly, but old jealousy and resentment turn to suspicion and terror when the group realizes that a masked clown among them has a real axe.
The film was released by Astral Films in its native Canada on September 17, 1976.
In the United States, the film was first released on VHS by Trans World Entertainment.
