CLOWN PARTY

The Man awakens in an abandoned school bus, noticing the majority of bus seats to be torn apart. He exits the bus and wonders around an abandonded amusement park. The Man turns around to find a chain-link fence, with a thick black fog pressing up against it.. The fog dissipates to reveal a chubby, masked man. It pans up to reveal a clown with a mask resembling severe facial burns, wearing a red jump suit and holding a giant candy-cane shaped stick.

The Man becomes intensely frightened, falling back a few paces. The chain-link fence disappears and the clown makes a taunting jump. Loud, carnival music begins to play all around The Man. He looks around to find the source, but becomes too distracted by the clown. 

The burned clown begins to charge The Man in a bizarre running style. The Man turns around to find a brick wall, preventing an escape. Pounding on the brick wall, The Man turns around to find the clown is now behind him.

The clown whispers, “Pain is my paintbrush,” before consuming The Man whole. The screen fades to black accompanied by a maniacal laugh, that progressively gets more quiet.
