Clowns. Once the beloved comical troupe of the circus, now a byword for sweaty nightmares and predictable horror flicks.
That transformation is thanks in part to the inherently sinister notion of grown men donning oversized clothing and make up to entertain children, and the continued efforts of YouTubers DM Pranks.
Famed for their series of crossing-the-line hidden camera jokes, their latest Killer Clown collection is beyond terrifying. Unsuspecting members of the public are sent flailing for their lives as DM's cast of masked horrors appear to stomp skulls, wield chainsaws and mismatch stripes and spots, all in the name of good humour.
Only the most expensive counselling money can buy is going to help these poor bastards recover.
