Somebody Dressed Up as a Killer Clown Is Stalking a Small Town

Well, this is one town in which I would NEVER want to live.

In a sleepy, small town in Scotland, a creepy guy is stalking around the area, dressed as the infamous clown Pennywise, and leaving those eerie red balloons all over the city.

From The Mirror UK:

The creepy character, wearing a Pennywise-style outfit – complete with scary mask and make-up – even leaves red balloons dotted around the village of Skelmorlie in North Ayrshire, Scotland. Wearing white gloves and a lace collar, as well as a top fastened with big red fluffy buttons, the clown has left the 2,000 locals in fear.

Pennywise the Dancing Clown is the main character in Stephen King’s 1986 novel IT, which was made into a 1990 mini-series with Tim Curry as the scary clown. It was made into a two-part film in 2017, in which Pennywise stalks the streets of Derry, Maine, killing children.

In the past week, a Facebook account set up by the clown – calling himself Cole Deimos – posted images of himself in the darkened streets of the village – and creeping along on all fours over a bridge. In one image, he stares at the screen with a hideous smile on his face, while holding a red balloon. In the book and movies, Pennywise tempts children to their death by making red balloons bob along the road and down storm drains, where he lies in wait to grab them and pull them into the sewers, the Daily Record reports.

In other photos, the Skelmorlie Killer Clown, as he has been dubbed by locals, is shown ‘snarling’ at the camera as he stands behind a locked gate, and posing outside a shop in the village. The clown has also left red balloons dotted around the village, which is just over 30-miles from Glasgow.

One local, who asked not to be named, said he wasn’t letting his two sons – aged 11 and 13 – out at night. He said: “Whoever this is they are scaring everybody – he needs to be stopped. Someone needs to have a word with him before the police get involved or he really terrifies someone. He could give someone a heart attack.”

This guy might just be getting into the Halloween spirit, but seriously, this is too much.

I know that if I saw this creep standing there with a red balloon, I would probably flee in terror. But for some, the sight might actually send them into shock or even worse.
