Lon Chaney Sr. said the greatest horror is The Clown at Midnight. As he put it, a clown is funny in the circus ring, but what if the same clown appeared at your door at midnight and rang the doorbell. Would you answer the door?
What if this clown was outside the door with a machete rather than his little bell?
I like horror, but not that much.
