Killjoy Goes to Hell Review
Synopsis:Killjoy is back in the fourth installment of the demonic clown series. This time Killjoy is being accused of not being evil...
Killjoy Goes to Hell (2012) is an American horror-comedy that is the fourth installment in the Killjoy franchise. Director and writer John Lechago (Magus (2008), Blood Gnome (2004), Killjoy 3 (2010)) did an awful job executing this bloody clown sequel that was filmed in Los Angeles, California, USA. The movie contains sexual references, rape themes, strong violence, bad language, minor suspense, no scares, no thrills, and not a lot of big laughs. I am shocked beyond words that Killjoy survived so many installments because, in my opinion, it should have never been produced. Killjoy (2000) by director Craig Ross, Killjoy 2: Deliverance from Evil (2002) by Tammi Sutton and Killjoy 3 (2010) by John Lechago was not good films, so I did not see the need for this franchise to redeem itself by making the fourth installment. Killjoy 3 was better than the previous two in its series and better than this film.
Killjoy (Trent Haaga - Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger IV (2000), Cheap Thrills (2013), Deadgirl (2008), Terror Firmer (1999)) in Killjoy Goes to Hell is about Killjoy not seeking vengeance but instead, being punished in Hell as the title suggested. Killjoy is stripped of his powers before he is put on trial for his inexperience, lack of evilness, and insufficiency. Skid Mark (John Karyus - V/H/S/2 (2013), Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead (2006), Finger Bang (2011), The Trek (2008)) is a demon in training that looks up to Killjoy. Skid helped Killjoy resurrect his three underlings who were seen in the previous installments in its series. The hobo clown Punchy (Al Burke - The Wedding Singer (1998), The Toy Soldiers (2014), Ol’ School (2015)), the mute mime Freakshow (Tai Chan Ngo) and the succubus clown Batty Boop (Victoria De Mare) was the three to be resurrected. Killjoys three witnesses did not do justice for him as he anticipated, so he turns to the character that got away from him. Sandie (Jessica Whitaker - Killjoy 3 (2010), Key Lime Lie (2008), All in All (2011)) is locked away in a psychiatric facility because all of her stories of evil clowns were dismissed. Sandie is brought back to the underworld. The movie goes on to be a total waste as the time drags on with a screenplay full of plotholes.
The script is weak, actors performances are okay, bad special effects, camera angles were terrible, sets were below average, and there is just too many others things that were not good to be listed. One good thing about this film is the excellent make-up which was detailed with broken horns and no hair, creepy costumes, amongst other things. The cheesy lines were okay at times with and big laughs which are not seen much. If you are interested in seeing this film for all the terrible things it has to offer with boring dialogue, then grab your cell phone because you might be on that more than watching the movie. With all said, this film is better than the first two films in its series.
