He doesn’t stay in the box for long, and you can see him in our exclusive excerpt from the movie releasing next week.

Coming to VOD/digital platforms and DVD May 5 from 4Digital Media, THE JACK IN THE BOX was written and directed by Lawrence Fowler and stars Ethan Taylor, Lucy-Jane Quinlan, Philip Ridout, Darrie Gardner and Robert Nairne (MARROWBONE, PENNY DREADFUL) as Jack. The synopsis: “When a museum is donated a vintage jack-in-the-box, it’s not long before staff member Casey [Taylor] starts to think that the creepy clown doll inside has a life of its own. As he discovers his colleagues are dying, one by one, Casey realizes it’s up to him to find a way to end the nightmare or become another victim of the box’s curse.”
