ScreamBros: Killer Clowns from Chi Town
Killer Clown sightings are popping up all over the country, but what’s really going on? On this week’s ScreamBros, Jamie and Chico are joined by Josh Zeman and Rachel Mills, the team behind Killer Legends (2014), a documentary that investigates the origins behind popular urban legends, including those menacing killer clowns.
Josh, who wrote and directed the film, digs into the history behind clown sightings, which predate Poltergeist (1982) as well as It (1990). What is it about clowns that we find so sinister? Josh and Rachel also dive into Chicago’s tumultuous history with clowns, from the tragedy behind Showmen’s Rest to the man behind Pogo the Clown, John Wayne Gacy. So come float with us, they all float down here.
