You may be one of the many people who are afraid of clowns. Even if you're not afraid of clowns per se, it's pretty obvious what people don't like about them.

From Stephen King's IT to American Horror Story, clowns have been scaring us stupid for years. But what about those sweet, innocent, old-timey clowns who just wanted kids to love them?

Nope, they're still scary. Check out 8 clowns of yesteryear who are unintentionally terrifying...

1. Twin Terrors

It's those giant puffy crotches that are giving me the heebie-jeebies.


2. Stand in the corner & think about what you've done.

Mmmm, OK. So, I pulled his guts out then made them into a balloon animal...


3. An early pre-cursor to Slipknot?

Actually, nah. Slipknot were never this scary!


4. Just What Even Is Happening?

This guy is what Fear Itself has nightmares about.


5. Just keep looking at Santa, kiddo

Everyone else can see these clowns, can't they? I'm not hallucinating, am I?


6. Guess which one did the murder?

That guy on the right has an expression that a sane person may never be able to fathom.


7. In the dark tunnels, he waits

The clown waits for the night train to Hell...


8. Flamboyant Romper Suit Clown

You see that trifecta of dots on his face? Illuminati. JK but seriously, this guy is creepy.


Mmmm, I enjoyed that spooky slice of retro clown terror. How do you feel about this smorgasbord of Coulrophobia?


Are these creepy clown photos totally creepy?
