Clown Movies

1. Stephen King’s IT (1990)

Stephen King’s IT

Based on a book by Stephen King, this TV movie features the scariest clown of all. Pennywise is the wisecracking, freaky dancing clown played by Tim Curry. Best bit: When the clown appears in the drain and says, “We all float down here!”

2. Clownhouse (1989)

Clownhouse

Imagine you’re a young boy and it’s just before Halloween. Now, imagine you and your brothers are alone in the house at night. Then, imagine three escaped mental patients disguised as clowns come to your door. That’s what this movie is about.

Aliens disguised as clowns terrorize residents of a small town. This funny and bizarre 80s horror film is considered a cult classic.

In the Masters of Horror episode “We All Scream For Ice Cream” there is a creepy Ice Cream man named Buster who wears a clown suit.

7. Supernatural: Everybody Loves a Clown

Everybody Loves a Clown

The Supernatural episode S02E02 “Everybody Loves a Clown” features a scary clown who stalks a little girl and murders her parents.

8. Amusement (2008)

Amusement

Nothing amusing about one surreal clown creepster. In three tragic secrets, (stories) we get a small variety of subplots all involving the presence of clown horror. Amusement was a great film, one that I purchased right away upon viewing.If you’ve been putting this one off, don’t! It’s worthy of this list and for your DVD shelf.

9. Drive Thru (2007)

Drive Thru

A horror film about a fast food restaurant named Hella Burger has a demonic mascot called Horny the Clown. He is possessed by a vengeful spirit who tracks down and murderer the kids of those who killed him.

10. Zeebo the Clown

Zeebo the Clown

An episode of Are You Afraid of the Dark titled “The Laughing in the Dark” features a creepy clown named Zeebo. He smoked cigars and after he accidentally burned himself to death, his ghost haunted the spookhouse at an amusement park. It is generally considered the scariest episode of the series.

11. Killjoy (2000)

12. SICK – Serial Insane Clown Killer (2004)

13. Mr. Jingles (2006)

14. The Clown at Midnight (1999)

16. Dead Clowns (2003)

17. Final Draft

18. 100 Tears (2007)

19. Camp Blood (1999)

20. Fear of Clowns (2004)

Poltergeist

Who can forget that scary clown doll creeping under the bed? This film damaged alot of youths who promptly discarded any clown toys in possession. One scene is probably responsible for half the world’s therapy sessions. To this day, if I’m around clowns, dolls, thunder, lightning, I cry like a baby. This clown is even scarier before it moves. The anticipation is insanely horrifying.

Dead Silence

In the movie Dead Silence, there is a creepy clown doll that is possessed by the ghost of Mary Shaw.

    My younger sister has a clown phobia, it always cracks me up. But I guess in some movies the clowns are creepy like in IT and in Supernatural. The one in Are you afraid of the dark is funny.
