“Coulrophobia: an abnormal, exaggerated, or irrational fear of clowns” In Stephen King’s “IT”; It turns into a middle-aged male clown to attract children, his preferred prey, and kills them. Thus, being the prototype of a creepy clown. But we all know that children aren’t the only ones who can be petrified of clowns, us grown-ups often have the same fear and just that little bit more pronounced ;-) Some might find it ridiculous, but who hasn’t had a nightmare where a clown (friendly or not), played the lead?
Of course, there are many more examples of the use of a clown to identify something or someone absolutely horrific. The media is often gladly taking advantage of people’s fear of clowns. Let’s take someone in the real world for example: John Wayne Gacy, who got nicknamed “the killer clown”. A serial killer and rapist, who would dress up as a clown for charity events or to entertain the neighborhood children. Or American Horror Story, who tried to create the scariest clown of all time with “Twisty” in American Horror Story: Freak Show. He is a murderous clown with a mask and overall dirty appearance. For all you coulrophobes out there; I think he does the trick!And this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to misbehaving clowns, so maybe fearing clowns isn’t that irrational at all…
If this article has awakened an appetite in horror movies starring a murderous clown, here’s a list to satisfy your hunger! Topped off with a few more beautifully scary tattoos ofcourse ;-) Enjoy!
