    Inherently Evil

    I think there is something inherently evil about them - not the people, but the idea of them...the exaggerated, red, gaping mouth contrasted against the too white skin...like blood and gore dripping from the mouth of a predator feasting on a fresh kill.... And my children have...

    Visitor

    So...when I was about three years old, I saw the clown with the tear away face in the nightmare before Christmas. That scared me. Then that night I had a dream about clowns coming up to me and tearing off their faces and I just remember being really freaked out. The next day...I...

    The Clown Story

    The first time i ever went to a circus i was 5 yrs old. I was so excited to go. It was about 7 oclock. It was starting to get dark. When we first entered, there was (OF COURSE) a CLOWN standing at the door. I walked up to go through the door and he stopped me, he...

    Who Knew Mimes Could Be So Angry

    Jugalos and Juggelettes may wield hatchets and engage in senseless semi random violence but, what frightens me most is their ability to imbibe massive amounts of faygo ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juggalo

    Gah!!

    The makeup makes them look like they're leering at you.. it's terrifying... I don't appreciate the circus much because I keep thinking the clowns are going to start serial killing/mass murdering everyone. Maybe it's because I watched "It".

    It Is An Innate Fear...

    The fear of clowns must be innate. I have never had a creepy clown experience that I can think of (But I may have blocked it out) but the idea of clowns make me shudder. I'm a grown woman with children, but the last time I encountered a clown, I ran away in tears. I don't know...

    Clowns Aren't Scary..

    People just want to find a way to fit in with others. After all is it not just a part of being human that allows us to make friends to begin with? How does one make friends with people if others are too busy being so indifferent that they can't even try to get to know people they...

    Super Creepy & Super Freaky!

    I've never understood peoples fascination with clowns. I just don't get it. Because to me they aren't the least bit funny. They're just plain old creepy & weird. I especially don't understand the people who collect these scary *** displays of freakishness. For instance, when...

    Been Afraid My Whole Life

    When I was little, my parents took me to the circus. I flipped out when the clown came up to see the little kids. I have been afraid of them my whole life. I will purposely walk as far away from them as I can if I see one. People at work have made fun of me about it, and...

    Creepy!

    I think clowns are really creepy.  It is probably because they are hiding behind a mask of sorts, which I also find creepy.  The only thing that is real about them would be their eyes. I'm getting anxious just thinking about this.

    Creepy Clowns That Have Things Up Their Sleeves and In Their Pants.

    I think clowns are creepy and I sure as hell do not want them anywhere near me.  I would much rather be stuck in a movie replaying “Cujo” than “It.”  I mean what is it with the need to hide their face and then paint on a freaking fake smile? ...
