As It Chapter Two is out in theaters, Pennywise may have some competition courtesy of Wrinkles the Clown. Wrinkles the Clown is an upcoming documentary detailing the story of Wrinkles, a real-life clown-for-hire whose job is to scare people.

Wrinkles the Clown surfaced back in 2014 when a video of a clown creeping out from a child's bed appeared on YouTube. The description revealed that the masked clown named Wrinkles lived in southwest Florida and was hired by a kid's parents to scare her for misbehaving. The low-res video of course went viral, and soon after, more clips of Wrinkles frightening children popped up online, along with a phone number to hire the clown for "behavioral services."

Over a million messages were left at the number, as kids began filming themselves calling Wrinkles the Clown. Some children were obsessed with Wrinkles, while others were left terrified.

Wrinkles the Clown the documentary not only delves into the viral sensation, but it also features the man behind the mask. For a glimpse at what to expect from the film, simply watch the trailer above.

Wrinkles the Clown is due out in theaters and on demand October 4.
