The Hype Over A Killer Clown In "It" (Video)

Have you wondered what's our fascination with clowns -- and not your average everyday-happy-go-lucky clown. I'm talking about a creepy killer clown, like the one the latest rendition of Stephen King's classic novel "It".  Well, it made a killing at the box office.

"It" brought in an estimated $123.1 million in the U.S.  North American box office this past weekend.

According to Warner Bros., it's the largest opening for a film debuting in September and the largest opening ever for a horror movie.

The film critics say we are obsessed with being 'scared' in a movie. Hmm...it's a bit too scary for me. Have you checked it out? Will you?
