13 phobias on film for Friday the 13th13 phobias on film for Friday the 13thSasha James1/13/2017 9:05:00 Am

Did you know that “paraskavedekatriaphobia” is the fear of Friday the 13th?

Instead of the usual breakdown of the Friday the 13th movies that you’re probably used to, we decided to celebrate this Friday the 13th with a write-up of phobias and the movies that we most associate with them. Yes, we could have picked Arachnophobia for arachnophobia, but we tried to be at least a little bit more creative.

Check out our list below, and let us know if you can think up better movies to represent the below phobias.

Panphobia (Fear of Everything) – What About Bob?

You can’t talk about phobias without talking about Bob Wiley. In Frank Oz’s 90s classic What About Bob?, Bill Murray plays the multiphobic patient of Dr. Leo Marvin (Richard Dreyfuss). He’s afraid of everything: buses,

Clowns Are Not Fans Of "Freak Show"

  • Dark Horizons
One of the most talked about elements of FX's "American Horror Story: Freak Show" is the character of Twisty the Clown, a serial killer who imprisons children in a school bus and uses scissors to terrorise young couples.

Now 'Clowns of America International', the largest clown club in the United States, have expressed their unhappiness with the portrayal of their profession on the show. The group's president Glenn Kohlberger tells THR:

"Hollywood makes money sensationalizing the norm. They can take any situation no matter how good or pure and turn it into a nightmare. We do not support in any way, shape or form any medium that sensationalizes or adds to coulrophobia or 'clown fear'."

Fear of clowns is a growing trend amongst younger generations in the wake media portrayals of sinister clownish fictional characters ranging from Batman's The Joker to Stephen King's Pennywise from the "It" book and mini-series.

Kevin Kangas Opens His Garden of Hedon

Sex. It's our favorite 3-letter word, and we're sure that many of you echo that sentiment. Humping and horror movies go together hand-in-hand like a perfect marriage of sorts. And if you like both of 'em as much as we do, then you're gonna love Kevin Kangas' new flick... Garden of Hedon.

From the Press Release

Garden of Hedon, the noir-horror movie from the creator of Fear of Clowns and Hunting Humans, gets its Blu-ray release on February 17, 2014.

The movie starts with a classic mystery open: Owen wakes in a room with a dead body and no memory of how he got there. Where the movie differs is the supernatural element as he discovers there’s no way out of the mansion he finds himself in, and with no way to contact the police it’s up to Owen to find the killer… and the murderer’s only just begun.

Doctor Gash's Tip of the Scalpel to Evil Clowns

Coulrophobia. Fear of clowns. Yeah, folks, it's real. We're not sure if it's a generational thing or a nature versus nurture thing, but the time of the clown as a happy-go-lucky bringer of good cheer has gone by the wayside.

These days you're more likely to see them blood-soaked and maniacal in your local Halloween store than making children laugh with their goofy antics. However, in our ongoing quest to understand human fear, we've researched and discovered that society (of course) is most likely to blame for giving these once beloved jesters a bad name.

And being a card-carrying coulrophobiac myself, it's with great pleasure (and trepidation) that I give you a look into the vilification of these poor souls in this Tip of the Scalpel to Evil Clowns.

We can hypothesize as to why so many people are now disturbed by clowns. However, let's look at what we do know for a fact.

Countdown - Top Six Killer Clown Movies

In Conor McMahon’s Stitches, acclaimed British comedian Ross Noble plays Stitches Grindle, a hard-drinking mess of a clown whose destructive ways catch up with him at young Tom’s birthday party – leading to his accidental, violent death.

Six years later, Stitches returns from the dead to take revenge on the brats who put him six feet under… turning the tables on them as only a clown can.

In honor of Stitches hitting Blu-ray and DVD this Tuesday, April 2nd, we’ve decided to take a look back at cinema’s killer clowns through the years, and picked out a handful of our absolute favorites:

6) The Trio, Clownhouse (1989)

A trio of mental patients murder circus clowns, taking their guises to torment a young boy and his brothers (one played by a young Sam Rockwell) during a long night alone in their family home. A genuinely unsettling tale that delves deep

The Good, the Bad and the Bloody: An Interview with 'Blood Rites' Director Dorothy Booraem

  • Planet Fury
Dorothy Booraem is a video production multi-hyphenate from Lincoln, Nebraska. In addition to creating several film and video shorts, she is also the writer and director of the Asian-influenced horror feature Wake the Witch (available on Netflix). As the COO of Unfiltered Entertainment, a privately owned production company, she has helped in fostering a creative community of artists who specialize in genre content. Her newest project, Blood Rites, is a well-shot, micro-budget horror feature that she co-wrote, produced and directed with the help of her dedicated team. In spite of our underwhelming review, Booraem generously gave her time (and refreshing sense of humor) to speak with Planet Fury about working with a low budget, her creative process and embracing negative criticism.

How did you get started making movies?

How did I get started making movies? Like this… I was working at the Colorado Shakespeare Festival in Boulder on the costume/prop crew.

CarnieVille Wants to Stick a Very Scary Clown Directly Into Your Personal Space

In my humble opinion, all you really need for a successfully scary horror picture is a weird guy in clown make-up. Nevermind the ghosts, the ghouls, or the goblins — if you want to freak my freak, then have a creepy clown menace bunch of unsuspecting individuals for 90 minutes. Victor Mathieu’s upcoming horror flick “CarnieVille” seems to operate solely on this premise, and while the framework might be a little wonky, I’ll still check it out since I’m a sucker for clown-oriented genre fare. That’s the only reason I own “Fear of Clowns”. Yes, I’m that stupidly hardcore. Need a synopsis? We’ve got you covered: After having witnessed her neighbor murder his own wife in his clown outfit, Corey has been dealing with coulrophobia (fear of clowns) ever since she was a child. On Halloween night her boyfriend and his friends decide to help her

Supernatural Preview: Dean Thinks Sam's Fear of Clowns is Hilarious

Yesterday we posted a sneak peek for the upcoming February 10 episode of Supernatural (watch it here).  After the Amazons escaped town at the end of the last episode, the boys, unfortunately, have no other leads on the women.  While Dean checks in with Frank to prompt him to dig more on the leviathans, Sam spots a possible case for them.  As it turns out, several parents are being murdered in a small town.  What do the victims have in common?  Recently, all of their children were at Plucky Pennywhistle's pizza parlor.  While there, the kids were asked to draw a picture of their greatest fear, which later comes to life and kills their parents.  Expect all manner of monsters and even a murderous unicorn to pop up in the episode.

Hollywood Unhinged – Will Ferrell and the Tears of Oscar

  • HeyUGuys
Feeling sorry for Will Ferrell and why Oscar prefers crying to a good belly laugh

I feel a little sorry for Will Ferrell.

No, it’s not the succession of box-office hits, the staggering star salary or the house in the Hollywood hills that’s probably quite spacious with a pretty decent-sized garage. Because let’s face it, that’s all quite nice. No, I feel sorry for Will Ferrell because he’s never going to win an Oscar, and I think that’s a crying shame.

What is it with the Academy and comedy? Did somebody have a bad genre experience as a kid and decide comedy should be overlooked every time the Oscar nominations roll around? Fear of clowns maybe…?

Ok, so this year’s better than most. But still, of this year’s more light-hearted Best Picture nominations, The Descendants kicks off with a woman in hospital with a life-threatening head injury,

Clowns director has a bloody Bounty; exclusive pics

  • Fangoria
Kevin Kangas, writer and director of the Fear Of Clowns movies, got in touch with news and a couple of exclusive photos (see them below) from his latest feature, Bounty. The basic premise is simple, Kangas tells us: “What if Dog the Bounty Hunter was in a horror film?

“It’s about a team of seasoned bounty hunters on the trail of a man who appears to be a serial killer, but the truth is much worse,” he continues. “It’s a strange movie, and I’ve been pretty vague about it because I don’t want people going in knowing very much. But fans of horror who are also into Cops and Dog The Bounty Hunter—I’m one of them—will probably enjoy it. Like my other films, Bounty was shot entirely in Maryland, primarily in Glen Burnie and Baltimore, and it stars cage-fighter-turned-actor Tom Proctor, Neil Conway,
