10. Pennywise

Do I have to explain this one? Yes? Okay well look, Pennywise has been tormenting us for quite some time. When Tim Curry took on the role, he tormented our dreams and left us having a fear of clowns that would never really go away.

Did the new version of It help our fear? Well, kind of. Now there’s a whole community out there who are attracted to Pennywise because Bill Skarsgård played him. Honestly, it is a little weird but still, he’s a demonic monster clown that haunts this town every 20 some years.

Now look, clowns are creepy. We have clown killers in real life and clowns hanging out in the woods just to freak us out. But the real reason behind this fear (I think) comes from Pennywise himself.

Tormenting these small children led to decades of kids being terrified of clowns. And now that we have a new It out, we’re still just as afraid of Pennywise the Dancing Clown. And I don’t think it is going to get better anytime soon since we’re going to get a chapter 2 as well.

As long as Pennywise is alive and well, so is our fear of clowns and that is some stamina that is absolutely terrifying.
