Yeah, nothing of any real cinematic significance comes to mind.  Here are a few titles for your list, though:


Killer clowns seem to be relegated to second-tier horror and anthologies.  It is just kind of hard to take them serious as villains (and I grew up less than a mile from John Wayne Gacy's house!).  There were numerous episodes of Tales From the Crypt/Darkside that featured evil clowns.  And there are lots of movies where the clowns are simply mean or pushed to violence, like Fellini's La Strada, Vulgar, The Chase, or Lon Chaney's Laugh, Clown, Laugh.  There are certainly a lot of freaky movies that encompass the broader circus-carnival category.  Of those, Jodorowsky's Santa Sangre is my favorite.

Voted for IT, best killer klown...er, clown movie by a mile.  Too bad they blew the ending with the spider thing in the cave.

I guess the "real life" scariest flick here is Clownhouse, considering what went down with Salva and his underage stars...

Another one for your list is Bill Rebane's obscure slasher Blood Harvest (aka. Nightmare, aka. The Marvelous Mervo), in which Tiny Tim - yes, that Tiny Tim, tiptoe through the tulips Tiny Tim - plays an (almost) evil clown.  That's a wild one, though to be honest, the best part of it is Cari Salochek's abundant nudity.

I guess the same could be said for most slasher flicks of the era.

Killer Clowns from Outer Space. Because they did it right and it's a classic.

No, the Joker is a joker, not a clown.

Difference.

What was CLOWNHOUSE about, I think I remember it - If it is what I think it was ... I liked it.  Thumbup
But KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE gets my vote.
VULGAR aw,man I dont want to think it right now. I just had lunch. Devildogs and Milk.

Clownhouse was about some little boys (aged about 8 to 13 I'd guess) in their home alone for some reason when some nutjobs wearing clown getups break in and, well, you know...

It's not a bad movie, though it is overshadowed by the surrounding scandal.

Cecil B. DeMille's THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH (1952) features Jimmy Stewart as a killer clown named "Buttons".  TeddyR

Scariest part: this won the "Best Picture" Oscar that year.

BLOOD HARVEST(1987) with Tiny Tim as a psycho clown. TINY TIM!!! That's scarey in itself!

Killer Klowns From Outer Space, the undisputed king of Killer Clown flicks, of course.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
