WATCH: Wrinkles The Clown will most likely be the scariest documentary you'll ever see

The bit with the bed! Can't sleep... Clown'll eat me...

It must be pretty much impossible to be an actual clown anymore.

What was once a profession to bring joy and laughter into the lives of the young and the young-at-heart is now pretty much a visual shorthand for horror.

Not only do we have the return of Pennywise in cinemas this week, but now we've got our first trailer for upcoming documentary Wrinkles The Clown, and ... no. No thank you. No.

In recent years, there was stories circulating of a professional clown who could be hired specifically to frighten misbehaving children.

However, this documentary goes to show you the lengths that some people will go just to frighten their friends and family, as well as how the combined power of social media and word-of-mouth have warped and elevated Wrinkles to the status of an urban legend... but one that can actually be called upon.

Unlike saying Bloody Mary (or Candyman?) into a mirror five times and be left disappointed but still a little bit creeped out, you can actually just pick up the phone and bring Wrinkles into your life and potentially permanently traumatise your child for good measure.

Plus the director actually sits down with the man behind the mask, to get to the bottom of why he does what he does.

And seriously, the bit with the bed in this trailer? You'd never sleep again.

The movie is released in the States on Friday 4 October, with no set date for Irish cinemas just yet.
