3 Scary Clowns of 2016: Carrying on the Freak Show

In homage of the remake currently underway for Stephen King's classic IT, we have to highlight this year as a game changer for clowns that have literally made our skin crawl. In fact, there's a real scientific term for that fear of clowns (coulrophobia). We've seen a lot of scary clowns in our day of entertainment -- Twisty from AHS: Freak Show, Tim Curry's original portrayal of Pennywise, even some off-the-wall dark comedics from the Killer Clowns from Outer Space. But these days, clowns are even getting darker than the likes of John Wayne Gacy's Pogo (and that was pretty scary given he was a real-life person dressed in makeup and clown clothes).

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.
  • 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.

Why THE FACULTY Has so Much in Common With Body Snatchers and Pink Floyd

The Faculty took the idea of the invasion and simply localized it. Instead of a planet -- everyone is in danger, no discrimination, nothing to signify what these aliens want or are looking for -- the alien(s) instead focused their effect on just those few teachers. Now there's an interesting high concept.

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.

'It Follows': Not Just a Cautionary Tale About Casual Sex

And in all its basic-ness, you'd be shocked to realize that it's not just a linear-type film with one main idea. There are actually a ton of deep meanings behind all of the frames, the shots, the sequences, the scenes. With obviously the underlying principle, the whole point of it: meaningless sex is bad!
