The creepy clown holding a box of doughnuts and red balloons is inspired by Pennywise, the terrifying star of “It,” the movie based upon Stephen King’s epic novel. The movie was released this month and is the book’s second film adaptation. 

Other Pennywise “sightings” have been spotted across the country, including in one Pennsylvania town, where a prankster tied red balloons to sewer grates.
