The insane clown posse


Remember the story from Northampton that would pose under streetlights at night and walk down lonely roads with balloons? He became an internet sensation in the UK and throughout the world.. 

Either a copy cat is in the works in New York City OR a yet another publicity stunt is brewing for a horror movie.. 

As the New York DAILY NEWS reports, a 'creepy clown' has been spotted around Staten Island and is spooking residents of the borough. 

This clown, unlike the UK version, is dressed somewhat exactly like Pennywise the dancing clown from Stephen King's classic IT book and TV movie.. 

The clown has been spotted and even some have said it looks like the famed "DOINK" from wrestling allure..

BUT... this is the latest on the oddity: There seems to be links between the people involved with this rash of clown sightings and a company called Lens Productions. 

Nonetheless, clowns are scary no matter why they show up.. Sure, they are marketed as kid-friendly balloon makers. But killers such as John Wayne Gacy sure don't help the reputation of clowns.

Also this: Clowns have freaked out people for ages and seem to represent death itself.. a pale face, ballooned up hands, a large red inflated nose.. 
All the norms of post-mortem corpses. 

And clowns..

New Year's Eve.. Rockin' without Dick Clark in '13

Welcome to the final minutes of the year 2012. Yes. Already. It was so looked forward to, and it is ending so quickly...

It's minus Dick Clark this year, though. And that is notable. Fergie is showering ABC viewers tonight in the pre-game with Dick Clark related footage. Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …

Neve Campbell laments her post-SCREAM life: I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies

Neve Campbell Confirms Her 'Scream' Notoriety Inspired Her Decision to Leave Hollywood »

“I needed a minute. In my 20s, it all hit so fast and so big that it was a little overwhelming,” Campbell shared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “Wonderful, obviously, and I’m very grateful for it, but it got to a level, also, where the kinds of things that I was being offered were not the things I wanted to do. I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies.”

And this week she will be jumping out of building with the Rock in theaters ..

All 'scream queens' have gone through a period of confusion, denial.. acceptance. And now for Jamie Lee Curtis 40 years after her introduction to movies via being chased by killer Michael Myers, she is back for a final round.. 
Just as Campbell came home for the final SCREAM..
