Evil Clown Stalks Kids as Birthday Treat
Herald Sun ^ | April 15, 2010

Posted on 05/09/2012 10:32:51 AM PDT by nickcarraway

A PSYCHOTIC-looking clown who promises to scare children senseless can be booked as a birthday surprise.

For a fee, actor Dominic Deville dresses up in a deathly clown mask and contacts his child "victims" in the Swiss city of Lucerne to tell them he is watching them.

His "evil clown" service unfolds further as he teases his targets with texts, phone calls and booby-trapped letters, warning them that at some point during their birthday party, he will throw a cake in their face, the Austrian Times reports.

Mr Deville's look appears based on the monster clown played by Tim Curry in the 1990 TV adaptation of the Stephen King novel It.

In fact he admitted he set up the chilling business concept after watching his favourite horror movies.

"It's all in fun and if at any point the kids get scared or their parents are concerned, we stop right there," he said, adding that most children "absolutely love" being terrified by his antics.

Don’t need this. I’m already half scared out of my wits by Obozo the clown.

He could have been an accountant, but this career is just as good.

I had clown nightmares for years and years as a kid up through my mid twenties. Something like this would have thrown me right over the deep end!

I never could understand how people thought clows were scary until I saw the movie “Cabin in the Woods” - they had one clown with normal clown makeup (not purposefully evil makeup) who comes at someone with a knife while cackling gleefully ... a really creepy scene

I'm guessing that by the time the kid gets scared, the damage is already done.

The only way this could turn out okay would be if the “target” kid just happens to be martial arts expert.

I'm right there with you on that one.

Hated clowns faithfully all my life.

They're demonic in my book.

I don’t think it comes from the parents. Ever had neighborhood kids that wished were your kids just long enough to spank the hell out of them? That’s who rents this guy.
