Urban Legends

Clown Statue

The scary clown statue story is an urban legend about a babysitter who finds herself alone in the house with a creepy statue of a clown. Some people believe that this is a true story, but in reality, it’s just an urban myth.

Clown Statue

A few years ago, there was a wealthy couple who had two young children, a boy and a girl. The family lived in a large house in Newport Beach, California.

After taking care of their kids all week, the mother and father decided that they needed a break, so they booked a table for dinner at a nice restaurant.

That evening, they called a teenage girl they knew and arranged for her to come over and babysit their children while they were out. When the babysitter arrived, the parents told her to fix supper for the kids and put them to bed.

“After that you can just watch TV and help yourself to anything in the fridge”, said the father.

“And if you wouldn’t mind,” said the mother, “could you watch TV in our bedroom? The kids have been having nightmares recently, so if you hear them crying, you can just go in and calm them down.”

The babysitter happily agreed and the parents left for their dinner date. The girl gave the children some milk and cookies, then ushered them upstairs to bed. She started to read them a bedtime story and, before long, the little boy and girl were fast asleep. After tucking them in, she switched off the lights and went to watch TV.

When the babysitter walked into the parents’ bedroom and sat down, she noticed that there was a creepy-looking clown statue standing in the corner of the room. She tried to ignore it, but it looked so eerie and disturbing that it sent a chill down her spine. She felt as though its eyes were staring straigt at her while she watched TV.

As time passed, the babysitter started to feel more and more uneasy about the clown statue. Whenever she glanced at it, she got the unsettling feeling that it had moved, ever so slightly. Finally, the clown statue began to freak her out so much that she couldn’t handle it any longer.

She decided to go downstairs and phone the parents. When she dialed the number they had left for her, the mother answered.

“Hi, it’s me,” said the babysitter. “Everything’s fine. The kids are fast asleep in bed, but I was just wondering… would be OK if I watched TV downstairs?”

“Of course,” replied the father. “But why?”

“I know it sounds silly,” laughed the girl, “but the clown statue is really creeping me out.”

“The clown statue?” asked the father.

“Yeah, the clown statue in your bedroom,” the girl replied.

The phone went silent for a moment.

“Listen to me very carefully,” said the father. “Take the children and get out of the house. We will call the police. Go! Now!”

“What’s wrong?” asked the girl.

The father gulped and replied, “We don’t have a clown statue.”

For a second, the babysitter just stood there, stunned. Then, she dropped the phone and raced upstairs and grabbed the children. Carrying one under each arm, she raced downstairs again and fled out into the street.

Huddled on the sidewalk, comforting the two children, the babysitter
looked up at the bedroom window and saw something that made her scream out in horror. Peeking through a gap in the curtains was the white, painted face of a clown. It stared at her for a moment, then sank back into the darkness.

Within minutes, the police arrived and cautiously entered the house. In the upstairs bedroom, they found a man dressed in a clown suit. When they arrested him, they found a knife concealed in his costume.

The clown turned out to be a mentally disturbed midget who was a convicted murderer and cold-blooded killer. The evil man had been stalking the family for months, lurking in their attic during the daytime and coming out to sneak around the house at night.

For weeks, the children had been complaining about a “clown statue” that stood in their room and watched them sleep, but the parents just dismissed this as nightmares.


  • when you tell it, its much better if you end it after the father says they don’t own a clown statue

  • i know another version the clown statue kills the babysitter and the children because the clown is actually a convicted killer who escaped from prison a few days earlier

    and why dont parents believe children, i mean they are still HUMANS!!!
    But why a clown, errr i mean why dont they just dress up as a , err i dunno , KING RICHARD
    that would be less scarier

  • Awesome story! But why’d the clown spend so much time stalking the family when he could have killed them straight away?

  • clowns…..how about dolls? they are like the only toys that can be possesed by a spirit.i have lots in my room.they freak me out and i dont want them but amy does.shes my ghost freind by the way

  • Hi sfk! I’m a new user here and i’ve got a story.
    Though i’m new here, i’ve been reading the posts here for YEARS.

    __The curse of the amazon queen__
    I was waiting to get this one for years, and when I got the Flight of the Amazon Queen, you can imagine the look on my face.
    The protagonist in the game is a guy whose dream is to fly his dream star, Faye Rusell over the amazon for a shoot when his plane crashes on the banks of the amazon.
    My game was going quite well, until the point when Faye is captured by the amazons, who especially hate men.
    I’ve played the game before at my friend’s house, and I know the game inside out. Faye is supposed to come out into the prizon area and is supposed to give me my freedom.
    But that was exactly the thing that didn’t happen. An oldish woman came out and muttered something to one of the dungeon inmates. The guy suddenly drew something like a blade, when i saw the menu of the game. I was shocked. Someone had initialised the game.
    I started the game again, the game was perfectly normal. she came out, granted me my freedom and the game was completely normal. I looked at the clock. I was in the habit of playing at night as I have insomnia. It was 3:00.
    I had almost finished the game. I just had to finish the maze and collect the serum from the DinoRat. The dinorat was not there. there was only a message on the wall of the maze. it was “999,Hey! The curse of the Amazon queen”. The game crashed. I closed the window and saw that my background was changed. I almost puked when I saw the picture. It was myself hanged and a small note on the wall. It said, thanks for buying the curse of the amazon queen. I popped the CD out. It said, “THE CURSE OF THE AMAZON QUEEN”. Oh gosh. I could feel something cold in my stomach. Then i began to develop into a dinorat. Suddenly I heard someone crying. I turned to find my siblings crying as i lay in a pool of blood. Now I haunt the CD.

    (I know its boring but it’s my first story. sfk could put it in the funny stories section.)

    Thanks for wasting ur time.

  • Where can u read the chain letter

    A few years ago a mother and a father decided they needed a break, so they wanted to head out for a night on the town. So they called their most trusted babysitter. When the babysitter arrived the two children were already fast asleep in bed. So the babysitter just got to sit around and make sure everything was okay with the children. Later in the night, the babysitter got bored and so she wanted to watch tv but she couldnt watch it downstairs because they didnt have cable downstairs (the parents didnt want their children watching too much garbage) so she called them and asked them if she could watch cable tv in the parents room. Of course the parents said it was ok, but the babysitter had one final request. She asked if she could cover up the large clown statue in their bedroom with a blanket or cloth, because it made her nervous. The phone line was silent for a moment, and the father (who was talking to the babysitter at the time) said….. take the children and get out of the house….. we’ll call the police… we dont have a clown statue….. The police found both of the children and the babysitter slumped in pools of their own blood within three minutes of the call. No clown statue was ever found. If you don’t send this link to 10 friends tonight, the clown will be in your bed at 3:00 am with a chainsaw in his hand. http://www.scaryforkids.com/clown-statue/

  • I have read the chain letter before and it said you will see it by your bed with a chainsaw xD Soooo fake :)

  • So the clown could’ve killed any of the characters at anytime huh…..he chose to watch them instead. Freaky.

  • Hasn’t anyone gotten the clue yet? Clowns are evil little creatures, all of them! XD

  • I’ve read this millions of times. Its a stupid chain saying that if you don’t forward it, you’ll see the clown in your bedroom and he will kill you.. It’s dumb. xD

  • I`ve read this somewhere alot of times on one version the kids get killed by the clown statue and only the babysitter survives. Stalker clown O_O
