Clown Kill (2014)
Lock In (original title)

Jenny, an ambitious, feisty but very successful advertising executive has her drink spiked at a fancy dress party, leading to a brutal sexual assault in the pub toilets by a mysterious figure dressed as a clown. Slowly she rebuilds her life, and as she regains confidence in herself, she returns to work after a six month absence. She soon becomes bogged down with work and when her bullying boss gives her a huge, last minute advertising account with a Saudi-backed circus company, the pressure begins to mount. Forced to work alone throughout the night in the huge office block, it soon becomes apparent she is not alone. Stalking the empty corridors is a familiar, unwanted figure, and Jenny soon discovers she is locked in with Charlie Boy the psychotic clown, driven by a blood lust and an obsession with torment and murder. Blending suspense, horror and dead-pan humor, the film weaves a twisting tale that takes the viewer in a direction they never intended, without ever insulting their intelligence.

Production

The film received mainstream attention after its star Jessica Cunningham participated in The Apprentice in late 2016. The media expressed incredulity that Cunningham had been involved in the film.

Cunningham was six months pregnant when she filmed scenes of being raped, as well as a shower scene in which she appears nude. She additionally had to perform scenes in which she is tied up and has her mouth gagged.
