Klown is hands down one of the most hilarious, debaucherous, ridiculous films I've ever seen, and if you haven't had a chance to see it yet, make sure you catch the no-holds-barred original before the sure to be watered down American remake from Todd Phillips and Danny McBride hits theaters. Drafthouse Films is making it easy for you - Klown will be available via On Demand platforms and iTunes starting July 27th. And you can buy the DVD, Blu-ray or digital download in September.
Seriously guys. Seriously seriously. Watch this movie. But don't watch it with your parents or co-workers or anything. Watch it with your most impious acquaintances.
From the press release:
“HANDS DOWN THE FUNNIEST FILM OF THE YEAR!
...Plays like a superior, and way grosser, version of The Hangover."

Chatsworth, CA – Image Entertainment prepares you for ludicrous scandals and the epitome of ridiculous behavior with Klown. Based on the wildly popular six-season Danish TV show of the same name, this internationally acclaimed and award-winning saga of debauchery is letting loose on VOD and iTunes July 27th, with the Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital download continuing the laughs on September 25th. SRP is $29.97 for the Blu-ray™, and $27.97 for the DVD. Pre-book is August 28th. Digital download outlets include iTunes, Amazon, Distrify, Vudu, Xbox and other digital partners. On-Demand outlets include AT&T U-Verse, Comcast, Cox and DirecTV.
Klown follows two wildly inappropriate friends (played by celebrated comedians Frank Hvam and Caspar Christensen) as they run amok through the Danish countryside plowing through social taboos, unspeakable debaucheries and absurd sexual encounters. Misguided Frank kidnaps the nephew of his pregnant girlfriend in an eager attempt to prove his fatherhood potential while the sex-driven Caspar is determined to visit a world-renowned brothel are only a couple of the reasons indieWIRE proclaims it "raunchy, fearless and awesome!"
The remake rights for this thoroughly unique property were recently acquired by Danny McBride (Your Highness) and Todd Phillips (The Hangover, Old School), but here’s your chance to see the unhinged and thoroughly envelope-smashing original!
