Happy Halloween: The Clown Murders
You know whenever there's some coulrophobia to spread, I'm here to provide.
Chris Hanson is the diabolical brainiac behind Diabolical Brainiac Productions. For a little while now, Chris has been churning out these chilling, simply-made YouTube videos about certain unsung "true crime" cases.
They're unsung because -- sorry to spoil the joke -- they're not true. Chris simply takes old home movie footage, spooky music, and he creates a story. The effect can be astonishingly creepy if you don't know what you're looking at. I've already covered one of his earlier tales of murder here. The video above will tell you the horrific story of Danny Finan. The big challenge in waiting for the entire story to be told is making it through the terrifying clown parade that fleshes out the middle of the video.
Chris (no relation to the "have a seat over there" dude of "Dateline" fame -- last name is spelled differently) wrote to me the other day to thank me for the earlier post. He also provided some unnecessary reassurance: "Just to assure you, I am a very sane person who just happens to have a very black sense of humor."
He needn't have worried. I wouldn't enjoy his crazy videos if I wasn't similarly afflicted. [YouTube - The Clown Murders: 1966 TRUE CRIME CASE]
