THE KILLER CLOWN
If you weren’t afraid of clowns before, you definitely were after watching Twisty (John Carroll Lynch) in Freak Show. Between 1972 and 1978, John Wayne Gacy sexually assaulted and killed at least 33 teenage boys. He dressed as Pogo the Clown for children’s birthdays for years before police uncovered mass graves in his crawlspace and throughout his property. Gacy was sentenced to death by lethal injection, which was carried out in 1994.
