Freaky Clowns in South Carolina Are Reportedly Trying to Lure Kids Into the Woods
News| | By Mauricio Castillo
It’s almost ludicrous to think that this is actually happening in our reality; we have enough real terrors to worry about. But reports of lone clowns waving at pedestrians late at night or even knocking at their doors have been aplenty in South Carolina, and Dr. Steven Schlozman, a child psychiatrist who teaches a course on the psychology of horror films at Harvard University, is worried not of the clowns themselves, but of peoples’ response to them. “When the locals take their guns out and fire into the woods, it’s not that different from people going with their pitchforks into the woods after Frankenstein’s monster,” said Schlozman. “It never ends well.” Indeed, reports have already reached the sheriff’s office of people firing guns into the woods where the clowns apparently reside. Now, it remains to be seen whether these are just clowns playing a joke on residents, or whether these individuals actually are intent on committing crimes, but its something definitely worth investigating thoroughly. As long as this guy doesn’t show up.
