Clowns – if you are one of them people that actually enjoy them prancing around with those huge, fake painted smiles then you really should watch these films to re-evaluate your standing on the matter.

Over the years there have been a plethora of horror movies completely dedicated to these creepy entertainers. I may get some degree of abuse from this but after watching the majority of these movies I have resorted to sleeping with my bedroom light on for a day or two afterwards. These clowns can take many guises, from demonic entities, aliens or your bog standard, deranged, psychopathic killers.

Here we count down the 10 scariest horror movie clowns to have graced our screens over the years…and if your curiosity takes the better of you and you do decide to watch one of these films, WhatCulture cannot be held liable for lack of sleep or an onset of Coulrophobia. »
