“IT” Clown Real And Terrorizing Small English Town

bill-swift - September 18, 2013

I know I talk a lot about my nightmares coming true in the form of alien attacks, zombie uprisings, and bigfoot wars but truly terrifying. A man, (possibly human), is going around the town of Northampton in England dressed like a spooky clown. He stands outside of people's houses with balloons and stares...just stares. Sometimes he knocks on the door and offers to paint their window sills...but has no paints. A Facebook and Twitter page have been set up to track the phenomenon. I read this story last night and seriously had nightmares. Maybe I was scarred by Tim Curry's portrayal of Stephen King's IT clown Pennywise as a kid. Maybe it's just that clowns are the most horrifying f'ing things on the planet. What I do know is that if I see some monstrous pallazzo standing outside of my house, I'm aiming for the head.
