In Tonopah, Nevada sits a hotel labeled the “Scariest motel in America”, you know it as the Clown Motel. Nicknamed by Roadtrippers, the clown-themed motel (*shudders) is pure nightmare fuel, it is also rumored to be haunted (as if the place wasn’t scary enough already).
Now, the creepy as s*it Clown Motel has inspired a horror film. Guess where the movie is being filmed. You guessed it, the Clown Motel. Oh, and the title of the film, Clown Hotel.
The film stars two genre icons, Tony Moran who starred as the unmasked Michael Myers in the original Halloween, Ari Lehman who played young Jason Vorhees in 1980’s Friday the 13th, and Pirates of the Caribbean’s Martin Klebba.
Directed by Joseph Kelly, the film “follows a group of ghost hunters returning home from Las Vegas. When they arrive at the Clown Motel, they’re left to discover if it is really abandoned and haunted by the souls of the clowns that once lived there.”
Clown Motel arrives on DVD on June 4, 2019.
