Stephen King’s It (1990) - Pennywise

In Stephen King’s It (1990) TV mini-series, there is a very scary clown named Pennywise the Clown. Pennywise must have been the only evil clown that terrified me one night to walk home when I was younger. Pennywise was played by Tim Curry, who delivered a fantastic performance. If anything, he makes the entire It "movie" worth watching by himself just to see his appearances. Pennywise terrorized the kids in the movie and returned when they grew up. Definitely in the top most scariest clowns ever in a movie.
