The fearful foe of the Batman movie who gives him and others the scariest nightmares is perhaps the reason why people frown on crowns. It is the morbid fear of clown which is called coulrophobia. The clowns have remained an important part of any circus and one cannot imagine entertainment without these lively jesters.
Often painted heavily with a sinister smile, they manage to pull a smile out of you. And yet, the characters are more than what they portray, beneath the surface, the evil lurks and a hidden agenda commences. The history has many anecdotes on the macabre stories of jesters in fiction.
There are grisly horror incidents of imitating scenarios in real life that are as ghastly as the originals. There are many incidents that have provoked schizophrenics and maniacs who are obsessed with the clowns nailing down innocent victims. The most sinister thing about it is that they want to recreate the horror scenes of movies and history.
