Would You Hire This Man to Scare Your Child?

Would You Hire This Man to Scare Your Child?

Your child's birthday only comes once a year and you want it to be memorable. But would you really want the day to be memorable because it was filled with fear?

Dominic Deville is the man behind the scary clown mask in the picture. For a fee, he will terrify your child for their birthday. Deville will call, text, and send letters to your child for a week leading up to their birthday, letting them know that they are being watched. On the big day, Deville will show up in his terrifying costume and smash a cake into your child's face. 

"If at any point the kids get scared or their parents are concerned we stop right there," he said. "But most kids absolutely love being scared senseless."


How did Deville get the idea? Read the full story at The Huffington Post to find out.

This is creepy...I, as an adult, wouldn't want this to be done to me, so it's a BIG NO for my child!

Yeah I wouldn't do it for a small kit, but if say a 10+ kid is really into horror and scary stuff (I was into Goosebumps when I was a kid, so I get it) I think they would love it! What really made me happy was to see this "If at any point the kids get scared or their parents are concerned we stop right there," he said. If you're kid is into that kind of stuff I say go for it, but if you're doing it just to see them wet their pants, that's when it would be messed up.

I would never, ever do this to my child! I have clown issues anyway and could not look at the picture. Clowns scare the crap out of me and to the best of my knowledge I never had anything like that done to me. I think it's terrible.

My 13yr old would absolutely love this. I don't see anyone doing this for their small child but a teen for sure.

What child likes being scared senseless? Mine did! As did I as a child. While this might be inappropriate for a small child, I may have actually done this when my son was, say, around 10. I would have monitored his reaction and put a stop to it if I thought he was not handling it well, but I think my son would have LOVED this. I undersand though that some parents have no common sense and would think it was hilarious to do this to a small child.
