Fear of Clowns

Fear of Clowns is a 2004 horror film written and directed by Kevin Kangas. The film centres on an artist who is struggling with a hostile spouse and becomes the object of a mentally disturbed clown. It was followed by a 2007 sequel entitled Fear of Clowns 2.


Lynn Blodgett, an artist with coulrophobia, has a nightmare in which she is a young girl and encounters a clown with a decomposing face after a car crash at a carnival. Lynn's nightmares have been getting worse since she filed for divorce from her husband, Doctor Bert Tokyo, who hit her upon getting the news, and is fighting for full custody of their son, Nicholas. One night, a shirtless clown ("Shivers") with black eyes and a battle axe gazes at Lynn's house, then walks away. In the morning, Lynn is told that a family living near where she was house sitting was massacred.
