Every Movie Murder Clown Ranked By How Huggable They Are
Art the Clown
While Art the Clown from the “Terrifier” series is a modern horror icon, he's probably not one the audience wants to get to know better. Art takes methodical killing to an extreme level; hugs can't fix him, so one should stay away from him.
The Joker
In "The Joker," Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix) is a nihilistic, failed clown, whose violent rebellion renders him a no-go for hugs. One might want to hug him early on, but as the film progresses and Fleck's mind spirals, he's not someone audiences will want to embrace.
While Bobo, the killer clown from "Out of the Dark," isn't as criminal as the Joker or as violent as Art the Clown, he remains a creep in his own right. Bobo doesn't deserve a hug because he feels too innately entitled to one in the first place.
Captain Spaulding
Upon first meeting Captain Spaulding (the late Sid Haig) in Rob Zombie’s “House of 1000 Corpses,” he might deserve a hug or two, but the moment he introduces audiences to the rest of his family, that clownish luster is lost. It's unlikely anyone will want to hug him.
Horny the Clown
While Horny the Clown from "Drive-Thru" looks like an old Jester, he also feels like a "Twisted Metal" villain brought into the real world. Homicidal or not, a hug or two might go a long way toward securing a greasy, tasty drive-thru burger.
