Synopsis by Mark Deming
Four well-heeled Texans discover themselves battling a killer whose alter ego is no laughing matter in this thriller. Brandon Walker (Ken Hebert) is a twentysomething businessman who wants to get away from it all for a few days, and invites his girlfriend Tracy (Amanda Watson) and a couple they know, Mark (Hank Fields) and Susan (Chris Bruck), to join him for a long weekend at his family's cabin in the woods. En route, Brandon picks up a hitchhiker, Denise (Melissa Bale), who wants to get out of town after a quarrel with her boyfriend. That night, the five relax around a campfire, enjoying a few drinks and some marijuana as they swap scary stories. Denise tops them all with the legend of a murderous and psychotic clown who is said to haunt the nearby hill country. The four friends begin to suspect, however, that Denise's story is no myth when she disappears and a number of sinister talismans begin to appear. The title S.I.C.K. stands for "Serial Insane Clown Killer." The film was originally screened under its production title, Grim Weekend.
