Seriously. They scare the crap out of me.
According to a question I posted on Facebook, *most* people agree with me. Clowns are creepy.
I didn't like circuses because of the clowns long before I had issues with the treatment of circus animals.
I blame my sister completely. She's scared of them, too, for the record.
We watched horror movies long before most kids are allowed to watch horror movies. I won't debate whether or not that's a good thing, but I really love scary movies.
Back to my point...
this is one of my first memories involving a clown
Did you jump? I did.
This has not gotten better as I've gotten older, either. I'd like to thank Stephen King for making things worse by combining spiders and clowns to create my worst nightmare.
Easily one of the scariest books & creepiest movies ever.
I'm every nightmare you've ever had. I'm your worst dream come true. I'm everything you ever were afraid of. (Pennywise, IT)
OH! Wondering where the spider comes in?
Yeah. That. The clown suit was just a cover.
Let go. Be afraid. You all taste so much better when you're afraid. (Pennywise, IT)
