We all know someone who is deathly afraid of clowns and if you really think about it, it actually makes a lot of sense because not only do they have freakishly large feet but they are full grown men that paint freckles on their faces. That in itself is enough to give people night terrors.
Beyond their large feet and creepy freckles you have to realize that most clowns are drug ridden alcoholics who piss all over everything and if Stephen Chiodo’s Killer Klowns from Outer Space has taught me anything, it is that clowns have the ability to shit cotton candy.
Now you can’t have a creepy clown without that hollow bone chilling laugh that they all seem to be so damn good at. Seriously. Other than psychopathic serial killers, no sane human being should be able to laugh like that. Also, don’t forget that clowns are notorious for molesting people, oh, and that red “paint” you see around their lips is actually blood from their innocent victims.
If that isn’t enough to convince you that full grown men wearing rainbow colored pants are made of pure evil, then take a look at this man, John Wayne Gacy, the clown who murdered 33 teenagers in his house and buried 31 of them under his house. Gacy himself said that he would use his clown act as an alter ego, once sardonically saying that “A clown can get away with murder”. So yea, now you know why that special someone is terrified of clowns.
And it just so happens that director Victor Mathieu’s new film CarnieVille features the exact same kind of clowns I described above. The freaky as shit kind. After having witnessed her neighbor murder his own wife in his clown outfit, Corey has been dealing with coulrophobia (fear of clowns) ever since she was a child. On Halloween night, her boyfriend and his friends decide to help her overcome her phobia of clowns by taking her to a nearby carnival. However, they soon discover that the price of admission is their lives.
Check out the teaser below.
