Depending on your level of coulrophobia, you'll either be thrilled or horrified to know that there has been a rash of scary clowns popping up at random to scare people throughout the United States. Even if you're not afraid of clowns, you can at least admit that a demented clown invasion doesn't sound like barrels of fun, especially since we have no idea why it's happening. The locations are all different, the clowns are different people, and they target indiscriminately. While some of the incidents may be harmless pranks, the idea there could be a real-life Pennywise out there that is really horrifying.
So get ready for the worst kind of carnival ride out there, and hope that you're not the next one to experience a creepy clown sighting yourself.
