There’s no better time than Halloween to watch horror films. And the under-appreciated sub-genre in horror, the scary clown film, should not be overlooked when looking for a fright. They’re not all just big shoes and bike horns. Some are maniacal killers eager to rip their victims open. Others are psycho killers, ghosts, or demons who know an ironically scary look when they see it. They’re like the hipsters of the horror world.

I’ve never understood why anyone would be afraid of a clown, but I am sure that the clowns on this list aren’t helping matters.

The Violator - Spawn

As one of the most over-the-top villains in comic books, Spawn’s evil clown The Violator is the devil‘s right-hand demon. Something was lost in the movie translation, however, leaving John Leguizamo to try and carry the entire film with his performance. Alas, there is only so much one actor can do. Danny Devito really dodged a bullet here.

SCARY BECAUSE: The clown transforms into a heart-eating monster.

Killer Klowns From Outer Space

The first in a planned series of films, Killer Klowns From Outer Space tells the story of a sleepy little town suddenly overrun by alien blood-drinking clowns. There’s something for everyone in this film. Horror, comedy, gore, and a gigantic Queen clown. How have there not been eleven sequels yet?

SCARY BECAUSE: Could happen.
