Quite a pedigree, Red Buttons and Jodie Foster. How did I miss getting creeped out by this the first time around?

Tenacious S said...

Are you kidding me? Putting aside the fact that I am totally skeeved out, I totally want to watch this!

I notice a nearly overwhelming backlash against clowns in the past few years.

I may have to drop out of clown college if this continues.

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

I know that chick, she gave me crabs.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

They just couldn't kill his love for children? Did they try chemical castration?

Mob said...

Shouldn't that read "...undying love for children's blood"?

Or was he a molestor clown rather than one of those filled with a murdeous bloodlust?

Johnny Yen said...

I have so missed your evil clowns.

Maybe Red Button and John Hinkley could have some kind of sick clown-fight over Jodie Foster.

With a premise like that, I'm surprised there isn't Alexander fan-fic floating around somewhere.

Bubs said...

kirby, indeed.

Johnny, I'm glad to oblige. Hey, Friday night was fun, huh?

Mob, I'm thinking molester clown, but they can turn ugly in a second.

Barbara, they don't have enough chemicals for a love that big.

Dr MVM, sorry about that. I heard they breed in those absurdly high-wasted pants.

Anandamide, don't stop believing. Believe in your dream.

Ten...it's mostly true.

Dale, I just uncovered the repressed memories of this movie in therapy. Maybe you could remember too?

Beckeye, what are you saying?

Aye Carumba! A candy-colored Clown from Hell!

Some things sound twice as creepy when you use modern values or take them out of context...this was creepy back then.

I wonder if Jodie had all the prints destroyed and if this instead of "Taxi Driver" is what really fueled Hinckely (sp?)

Grant Miller said...

That freaks me out.

Jeeebus, I can't believe I missed this party.
