It’s time we dive into something that gives us goosebumps and makes us want to hide under the covers: clowns! Surprised? I mean, who doesn’t love red-nosed, white-faced, goofy-haired performers who juggle and make balloon animals for a living, right? Well, apparently, a lot of people don’t, and there’s a weird reason behind it. Have you ever heard of coulrophobia [coul·ro·pho·bi·a]? It’s the scientific name for the fear of clowns! People who suffer from coulrophobia experience intense fear and anxiety in the presence of clowns, sometimes to the point where they can’t even look at a picture of one without feeling sick. But why are clowns so scary? According to science, it has to do with several factors. Let’s start with the makeup, which is usually extremely exaggerated. This can be unsettling because it hides the clown’s true identity and makes them look like someone else entirely. Scientists believe we find clowns scary sometimes because we can’t seem to figure out what’s going on behind those big fake smiles. Or what their true intentions are.

Movie directors and the audience can be so fond of particular characters that they keep bringing them back on the big screen in new films. It’s only fair that some roles get recast, as getting a new actor can bring a new twist to a character or be good for when the story needs to be retold completely. This is the case with Lara Croft: the reboot expanded on the character’s backstory and moved away from the “dated ideas” the original movies had.
