Why are the clowns so terrific?

For many people, there is something worrying about the clown, which makes the expression of the face as a grimace, or unnatural smile. 

That means we can not read their real emotions, making us uncomfortable. Perhaps it's no coincidence that many of the most notorious characters of the horror hide their faces in some way - think about the Scream or Leatherface mask, from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. 

When the clown also behaves aggressively or threateningly, the contrast with their multicolored suits and the features of the stench only add to the fear. But the context is all that children can see as friendly, laughable clowns in the circus.
