“Clowning around your mind”

Films: Carnival of Souls (1998)

Alias: Louie the Clown

Type: Mystical

Location: Civilized Area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Not a whole lot of people seem to remember the rather creepy 60s film known as "Carnival of Souls". Those who do however will remember how it seemed to depict one of the bleakest personal Hells. This one's a little different, but then again, not too much. Just nastier.

History: Long ago, Louis Seagram raped and killed the mother of Alex Grant after posing as an innocent clown. He was convicted to prison soon afterward, but her actions psychologically tormented Alex for the rest of her days. Then Louis appeared again, driving her into the waters below in her car. She somehow survived, but now suffers terrifying visions that no doubt confirm that she is in a Hell that Louis constructed just for her.

Notable Kills: Nothing special

Final Fate: After revealing Alex's plight to her, Louis is shot dead by Alex, presumably freeing her soul from his machinations. Later, both Alex and Louis' bodies are fished out of the water.

Powers/Abilities: Manipulation of reality.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-In contrast to the creepy suited men and women from the previous film, this flamboyant clown tortures people with himself and visions of all sorts to twisted people. A particular emphasis on that one toothy man should be here. It may not be quite as effective, but it stands out anyway.

Trivia: -Louis was played by Larry Miller, who was mainly known for playing as characters that would go from being jerks to being sycophants at the drop of a hat.

-At least one of the stars from the original film is in this film, with Mr. Linden's actor playing a cop.

Each balloon has a complaint about this remake.
It's a circus of farces.
Well, at least, it's hellish.
FBI, we might need you...
