Bandit Motion Pictures : The Bad Man

The Bad Man, the newest release  from the creative mind of Scott schirmer and all the crew at bandit motion pictures have done it again with what is probably their darkest film yet. Scott Schirmer (writer /director/producer Plank Face, Harvest Lake , Found) brings you the story of a clown and a young couple.

The Bad Man stars Ellie Church (Plank Face, Frankenstein Created Bikers, Headless, Harvest Lake, Space Babes from Outer Space) as Mary, Jason Crowe (Space Babes from Outer Space, Harvest Lake) as P.J. and Arthur Cullipher as Lawernce the Clown.

The basis of the story is Mary and PJ are visiting a B&B that Mary’s recently deceased grandmother owned. While their Lawernce shows up claiming to have a previous reservation for the night. Reluctantly the couple agree and let Lawernce stay, …after all, its only for one night.

Mary awakens the next morning alone only to find Lawernce, who is now in clown makeup, carrying a unconscience , gagged and bound PJ around the house. Mary is quickly over powered after threatening to kill the clown by Clowns gimp, a slender man in black jeans, black boots and a gas mask.

The movie moves along with our young couple being drugged, raped, humiliated and tortured all while Clown is breaking their will and turning them each into his own creatures. Mary he now has dressed as a baby doll in white dress , with Betty Boop style make up and PJ is now his dog, on all fours, with a choker collar that the gimp has taken to in a not so friendly manner.

Now im not going to give away any spoilers on the ending, but the story moves on only to find out that this breaking of the will is a part of an entire sub culture where people own humans that are totally submissive,  broken spirited pets/slaves.

There is a nice cameo by Alyss Winkler as Mantis and Ellie Church does a great job as does Crowe, but Arthur Cullipher’s performance hands down made this film. Cullipher’s performance was simply brilliant and at times will give you chills. He is everything that clown fearing folk fear. From happy go lucky , laughing and giggling to as a circus clown does, to the sleaziest and most violent , all while in clown make up.

The Bad Man is a solid film but kind of a slow burn at times…but it always keeps you. A power that Scott Schirmer seems to have is to be able to never give away to much at once, but always keep his audience captive.

So did I like The Bad Man, YES!  The Bad Man a solid film that takes you down a very dark road!
