We talk about everything wrong with IT: Chapter Two and discuss all the horror movie clowns that came before. Why is the killer clown trope so pervasive? Is it just a convenient shortcut to scary? Why does the killer clown trope seem to be most effective in horror’s grittiest, low-budget works?
Includes discussions of It: Chapter One (2017), It: Chapter Two (2019), Stephen King’s IT (1990), Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1988), Clown (2014), Hellbreeder (2004), Killjoy (2000), House of 1000 Corpses (2003).
