Awww poor Sammy but look who has it?
In the show Supernatural, every time Sam see's a clown he flips out. Sam is terrified of clowns because as a child Dean used to ditch Sam at a crappy Supernatural-world form of Chuck E. Cheese called Plucky Pennywhistle's Magic Menagerie. But instead of creepy rats, they had creepy clowns. You would think after everything they saw (Sam and Dean) Clowns would rank low on the list!
According to Wikipedia
Coulrophobia : is not an old phobia, but one that increased in recent decades, little is known about coulrophobia. Scientists and doctors now agree that it is a result of not knowing who lies behind the excessive makeup, red nose and hair color. The clown wears a colorful makeup to deconstruct the facial features to create a new identity. And clowns can also break social norms, their mask makes them able to do things that others can’t do socially, like interacting with unknown people at ease. Some researchers believe that coulrophobia cases increased after the 90’s, when Steven Spielberg classic horror film “IT” depicting a murderous clown was released and the portrayal of Joker as an evil character in Batman movies did not help the matter either.
Anyone else afraid of clowns with Sam?
