I'd like to tell you all a story. Not a happy story, filled with fun
and adventure...but a terrifying tale that began about 27 years ago,
when I was just a child...one who found joy in simple things...like
toys, clowns, and fun TV shows. That is...until one dark night...a
night not unlike many other nights (or so I thought)...when everything
I was supposed to be in bed, asleep...but as usual, I'd crept-out into the hallway to sneak a peek at what my parents were watching on TV...and as usual, I was a bit anxious about what I might see. It may be something a kid my age shouldn't see. At first, everything seemed fine. I didn't know what it was that they were watching...but there was a clown (not a REAL clown...but a toy clown, similar to the clowns in my own bedroom), and that couldn't possibly be a BAD thing. Right? WRONG. Almost immediately, things went from "fine" to "the stuff of nightmares". The clown wasn't funny...not funny AT ALL. It was terror like I'd never known! I hurried back to my room, only to find the terror had FOLLOWED ME! In a state of panic, I grabbed every last toy clown in my room and placed them all outside of my door, then took shelter under my bed-covers where I eventually drifted-off into nightmare-land. From that day forward, I've been creeped-out by clowns, and never again did I allow them into my room.
Fast-forward to present day. I now know that my fear of clowns is a result of witnessing one of the creepiest scenes from the original 'Poltergeist' film...and that's also the reason why I love that movie. Anything that can frighten a person so badly that it creates a lasting phobia, is a MASTERPIECE as far as this horror junkie is concerned.
After much anticipation for this remake...I must admit, I was a bit nervous prior to watching it. The trailers looked GREAT, and I feared the film would disappoint (as so many films with epic trailers DO). It DIDN'T. Yesterday, I feared clowns. TODAY, I fear clowns more than EVER...but also stuffed pig-unicorns; the dark; light bulbs; closets; TV's; electricity in general; power tools; mini-vans; mud; cemeteries; the ground; walls; doors; sub-divisions; trees; windows; furniture; and any kind of ball. THANK YOU, Sam Raimi, for that. Just PLEASE don't ever make me fear coffee, cheeseburgers, or anything involving chocolate.
