In the horror course we talk about lots of horrifying figures in fiction, but click here to read about one that’s cropped up in real life in the English town of Northampton, which is about 70 miles north of London. I was excited to be able to post this article on the blog, since a few students have mentioned King’s It as their favorite horror story and I’ve been feeling kind of bad not to have any clowns among the course readings (well, except for the one in Poltergeist).
I really wonder what the person dressing up as the clown is up to–why do it? What does this person gain from the experience? Got ideas? Post a comment!
