So Just How Scary Are Clowns Now? Check This List Out.
Not to knock our forefathers of clown craziness, but we're getting pretty creepy here. And from a realist standpoint. A lot of the sensibility of scary clowns comes from a certain supernatural sense, and that's plenty horrific enough.
But in this day and age when reality can be even scarier, there's no doubt: real-life clowns can get even more frightening, and media has played it out this year with some clowns that might surprise the scary into you. Think about it.
- Jared Leto's Joker From "Suicide Squad" -- I know what you're thinking.... No one could top Heath Ledger, and quite frankly, the Joker's not meant to be 'scary'. We differ on that opinion as we explain it here.
- The Six "Heads" From "31" -- Let's just say Rob Zombie knows how to freak the living sh*t out of us. Remember Captain Spaulding from "The Devil's Rejects"? He just multiplied that level of terror by six, and you can learn about them right here.
- And, of Course, the New Pennywise -- We don't even need an introduction for this guy. It's true: the full-size image of the remake was just released, and while we love Tim Curry's portrayal, we're thinking that this guy's going to do Stephen King's villain plenty of justice (or injustice, if you will).
Would you want that 'thing' working your kid's birthday party? Or any of them, for that matter? Hell, no.
