Jason has already taken Manhattan, but on Friday April 20th, there’s a new killer in town. New York’s Times Square will add the creepy killer clown Crepitus to its larger-than-life poster rotation.

Two different locations in Times Square (Crossroads at the Junction of 42nd Street and 7th Avenue – facing east – and Triple Play at the Junction of 49th Street and 7th Avenue) will play the new poster designs several times over the course of two hours, starting at dusk (between 8-9pm).

The upcoming indie film stars Bill Moseley as the titular Crepitus. Moseley is a living legend in the horror community thanks to his dedication to genre films with roles in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects, Repo! The Generic Opera, Army of Darkness, Rob Zombie’s recently wrapped 3 From Hell, and a multitude of other titles.

Ginger Knight Entertainment is in the final stages of post production for Crepitus and is expected to announce its release date soon. They’ve been amping up their marketing in anticipation for the film’s release – including a custom “blood red” beer.

Times Square is not only an iconic tourist destination, it’s the place you want your advertising to be. On an average day, Times Square sees over 300,000 pedestrians plus another 115,000 drivers/passengers passing through by car and bus. And the fun doesn’t stop after dark – over 66,000 pedestrians enter “the Bowtie” from 7pm-1am.

Crepitus is Haynze Whitmore’s directorial debut for a feature film and was shot entirely in Cheboygan, from a screenplay written by Eddie and Sarah Renner.

Synopsis:

Seventeen year old Elizabeth and her younger sister Sam are thrust into circumstances more terrifying than life with their abusive, drunken mother when they are forced to move into their deceased Grandfather’s house. Frightened beyond belief, they are forced to learn horrible things about their family history. Never mind the ghosts in the house, there is something far worse that takes an interest in them … a cannibalistic clown named Crepitus.

Check out the trailer below. And if you happen to be in the area, keep an eye out for a giant, creepy clown face on the billboards!
