Details: This poster shows an evil clown. He has a menacing toothy grin. There is blood dripping down from his head.
Clowns are stereotypically characterized by their colored afro wigs, stylistic makeup, outlandish costumes, and unusually large footwear. The image of the evil clown is a recent development in American popular culture in which the playful trope of the clown is rendered as disturbing through the use of horror elements and dark humor. Many people find clowns disturbing rather than amusing.
