Well I know if I wanted to freak people out dressing+acting like a demented/sinister clown would be one of the best ways to do it.Like in the movies-what is scarier: an axewielding masked maniac-or that sweet little girl sitting with her back to the main actor/actress..she walks up to the little girl,who seems to be softly crying,saying something like:"ah sweetie what's wrong,talk to me,I will help you"...and as the little girl turns around..ROARRR!!! She has the long-fanged hideous face of some demon from the pit.
Know what I mean? The scariest scenario of all is when something/someone traditionally symbolising safety+fun+innocence+all positive things turn Mean.Turn eerie+sinister and maniacal.
That is why REC/Quarantine and 28 Days later is far more frightening to me than a horror featuring all kinds of unspeakable CGI-created monsters+fiends/anything created with FX,however impressively they are.
The familiar+trusted are more terrifying when they "turn" than something you Expect and than the ugliest critter from a horror movie.
Now I have found clowns to be horribly sinister practically since first memory despite assurances from my mother that they were fine fun chaps.So to me,that clown would not be overly much of a shock or a scare-because I Expect clowns to be sinister+repugnant.But most folks and kids feel the opposite,they've been conditioned to see clowns as fine fun chaps.So yes,to really freak people out,you could do well to find a clownsuit.
And I am happy to report that there is at least one un-sinister clown in the world,a black guy that was born with the dwarfism condition,who works for McClaren circus.Took me almost half a century to find one I did'nt want to punch in the face if he came anywhere near me.
I also find it fascinating that some people are so far up themselves that they can genuinely post such drivel as. "Don;t you realise some people are scared of clowns, you are being totally irresponsible", as if there should be some sort of by law forbidding people ever doing anything out of the norm, whatever that might be, for fear of "scaring" someone.
can this be considered as a
'terrorist' .. ?
