I don’t know anyone who likes clowns…seriously, they hit a nerve deep inside our collective consciousness that screams runaway. There are clowns, and then there are these 10 clowns which take frightening and disturbing to a whole new level. Enjoy….
10. The Clown Doll
This scene from the original Poltergeist ruined clown dolls forever for kids of my generation. It’s a good old fashioned jump scare and one that I have never been able to successfully forget.
9. Sweet Tooth
Sweet Tooth, real name Marcus “Needles” Kane, is a fictional character from the Twisted Metal video game series. Sweet Tooth is designed around the premise of a killer clown that drives a combat ice cream truck, and his face has been featured on the cover of every Twisted Metal game to date, making him the series mascot.
8. The Hole Clown
From visionary horror director, Joe Dante (Gremlins, Small Soldiers), The Hole is the story of two brothers who discover a bottomless hole in the basement of their new home. As the brothers explore the depths of the mysterious hole, they soon discover that their deepest fears and darkest nightmares are coming to life.
7. Killer Klowns
Aliens who prey on our fear of clowns, arrive in a giant circus tent spacecraft and use cotton candy to store their humans for devouring later – this mash up horror comedy is grisly and these clowns live up to their reputation.
