Executive producer, Tommy Vlahopoulos of Tommy V Films, along with executive producer Tom Sulkowski, have acquired the rights to the docu-drama thriller film Behind the Sightings, which is based on 112 hours of found footage of clown sightings, recorded in 2016.
Directed by Tony Cadwell, the story follows Todd and Jessica Smith, two filmmakers from Raleigh in North Carolina, who set out to produce a documentary exploring the highly publicized, creepy clown sighting epidemic, which was investigated by local law enforcement. As the young married couple venture into Peachtree Way, Nash County, in search of clowns, what they found was far from funny.
“Clowns have traditionally been associated with slapstick style performance, comedy or mime, but there has always been a dark side to a clown,” said Tommy Vlahopoulos. “This is not fake news, ‘Behind the Sightings’ is centered around the terrifying clown sightings that shook the world last year, and an eager couple swept up in all the phenomenon. This is a very newsworthy subject, especially with all the continuous clown sightings.”
Tommy V Films, is the production company that brought horror fans the immensely popular home invasion horror-thriller flick, Intruders, starring Martin Starr, Jack Kesy, Rory Culkin and Beth Reisgraf, as well as the new boxing drama Glass Jaw, which recently wrapped production in Los Angeles.
The Behind the Sightings feature-length film is set to be released later this year.
