Lunchtime Quickie: Killer Clown For Hire!

Posted by on Tue, May 8, 2012 at 12:25 PM

Hey, did you know you can pay Dominic Deville, a Swiss actor, to help your child lose his or her mind in honor of their next birthday? It's true!

Just reading this book changed my child-brain forever.

John Wayne Gacy's self portrait did it for me. After that clowns are freaky.

I'd imagine that book would scare the hell out of a kid. For better or for worse, I was no kid when it was written.

Oh-if you need to get the image of pennywise out of your head, just remember that is Tim Curry under all the make-up. Picture him in full Frankenfurter gear and then sleep tight.

It probably costs a lot more to get Tim Curry to be a clown at your child's birthday party.

I remember reading this book and then being afraid to take a shower in middle school. Maybe that is why I couldn't make any friends.

This movie looks sort of weak though.

This book scared the hell out of me for years.

My parents, though wonderful people, were definitely a bit lax when it came to what my sisters and I could watch on tv. This ran as a mini-series in Canada and it fucked up an entire generation. Later, I read the book and that only made it worse.
