A dark, evil being is slowly taking over the world. But many of his schemes have been thwarted by the Wicked Clownz and The Dark Carnival. How will the creature deal with these persistent clownz?

Something bad is happening in the Arizona deserts – something wild and dangerous. A group of self-taught and out of control scientists calling themselves “The Solution” are destroying small desert towns one by one. The spirits of the Dark Carnival summon The Wicked Clowns, Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, to put an end to The Solution’s ghoulish activities. The Clowns are more than happy to oblige, but a pair of warriors stand in their way, a being known as Malison, the walking curse, and a mercenary priest called Grant. Malison and Grant are engaged in a battle to the death, and The Insane Clown Posse find get caught right in the middle!

Insane Clown Posse, often abbreviated as ICP, is an American hip hop duo. Formed in Detroit in 1989 as a gangsta rap group, ICP’s best known lineup consists of rappers Violent J (Joseph Bruce) and Shaggy 2 Dope (originally 2 Dope; Joseph Utsler). Insane Clown Posse is known for its elaborate live performances and theatrical horror-inspired lyrics full of dark humor. The duo has earned two platinum and five gold albums. According to Nielsen SoundScan, the entire catalog of the group has sold 6.5 million units in the United States and Canada as of April 2007. The group has established a dedicated following called Juggalos numbering in the “tens of thousands”.

Originally known as JJ Boyz and Inner City Posse, the group introduced supernatural- and horror-themed lyrics as a means of distinguishing itself stylistically. The duo founded the independent record label Psychopathic Records with Alex Abbiss as manager, and produced and starred in the feature films Big Money Hustlas and Big Money Rustlas. They formed their own professional wrestling promotion, Juggalo Championship Wrestling, and have collaborated with many hip hop and rock musicians.

The songs of Insane Clown Posse center thematically on the mythology of the Dark Carnival, a metaphoric limbo in which the lives of the dead are judged by one of several entities. The Dark Carnival is elaborated through a series of stories called Joker’s Cards, each of which offers a specific lesson designed to change the “evil ways” of listeners before “the end consumes us all”.
