“There’s nothing funny about a clown in the moonlight.” Lon Chaney, Sr.
“Few things are as hopelessly saturated with the stink of fear and death as a colorful, smiling clown. As my four-year-old son put it after having clowns explained to him: “So, clowns are supposed to be funny, but then they accidentally make you sad and afraid?” Michael J. Nelson
Oh, my. How the painted faces, goofy outfits, and crazy antics, make us laugh. Yes, we’re talking about the beloved clown. These fun loving freaks are our favorite sideshow at the circus, carnivals, and at many local events in our very own communities.
Well, as beloved as they are, some of us are terrified at the site of them. Why is this? Could it be that we believe behind the painted smiles is a deep, dark, grimace? Maybe it’s the fact that we really don’t know who is behind all of the make-up and show. Maybe, just maybe, all of the clever disguise of the fun loving clown, leaves too much to our imagination…way too much. Our mind goes wild with thoughts of pure evil and craziness as far as who is behind the mask.
Scary, crazy clowns, have made it from books to screen. Here we pay tribute to cinema’s top five ‘super ‘d’ duper’ clown flicks. Please enjoy the videos.
