Put on your local news and you may hear reports that sound straight out of horror movies: menancing clowns haunting the streets throughout the United States. As many as 12% of adults in the country suffer from coulrophobia, AKA the fear of clowns. For many, it starts as children. It did for me. I hated the circus growing up and NEVER wanted my face painted at carnivals or birthday parties. And then in 1990 Stephen King’s classic novel IT was turned into a two-part TV-movie and a new generation was exposed to a crippling fear thanks to Pennywise the clown (Tim Curry). Clowns have been a staple of the horror genre for years, and this Halloween season, there is a new film ready to feast on the fears of movie watchers: Clowntown.
