Murder the Clown is the stage name of Uncle Theo from the seventh Goosebumps Most Wanted book, A Nightmare on Clown Street.


He tried to write a note to Ray, but was caught by Mr. Haha Face and sent to Clown Street, a prison for clowns that are tortured by the true main villain of the book, The Frightener. At the end of the book, Ray couldn't wash off the clown makeup on himself, implying Murder was not able to either.

Other appearances


Murder the Clown in the 2015 Goosebumps film.

  • The human version of Murder the Clown appears in the 2015 Goosebumps movie portrayed by Marshall Choka, but credited as "Monster #4". He is one of the villains and monsters assembled by Slappy to wreak havoc in the town. Murder the Clown's appearance is much different from how he is pictured in the book. Murder doesn't speak in the movie, but his nose honked every time he laughed. When the monsters are sucked into R.L. Stine's book, Murder the Clown briefly loses his wig before being sucked in.
  • Murder was featured in the Goosebumps HorrorLand as well, but was a Horror and not a person.


  • He is the most recent monster to appear in the 2015 Goosebumps movie, with his book released just 8 months prior.
  • The cover of his book shows him dodging axes being thrown at him.
  • Murder was mentioned to have a hatchet in his head, however, neither in the cover of A Nightmare On Clown Street, nor in the 2015 Goosebumps movie there is hatchet.
  • In the film, he has white make-up, instead of red. His appearance is very similar to Pennywise from Stephen King's It, except his hair is shorter, and half of his suit is blue.
