Here’s how clowns became so terrifying in modern American culture

July 16, 2018

Brooke Palmer/Warner Bros. Clowns weren’t always the terrifying subjects of many horror movies, but the American idea of clowns as happy is not historically true either. They were complicated and often subversive figures, tracing back to the theatrical characters of 16th century Italy.  Well into the 20th century, clowns weren’t evil or terrifying, but they weren’t simply good or happy either.
