The life sized clown upstairs is an urban legend similar to The Babysitter
Two parents have gone away for the weekend and have left a babysitter to watch the children. Earlier that day, the babysitter was given the guest bedroom to stay in, when she entered the guest bedroom, there were clown statues, on every shelf. The thing that caught her eye the most was a life sized clown puppet , proped up in a rocking chair. The puppet gave her the chills whenever she looked at it, and she couldn't get it out of her mind, even when she was downstairs
at least an hour after she sent the two children to bed, she decided to call the parents. She asked them about the clown puppet they had in the guest bedroom. The parents responded that they didn't have a life sized clown puppet in the guest bedroom, and told her to get the children and call the police. He then further explains that the children have been complaining about a clown watching them as they sleep. He and his wife had just blown it off, assuming that they were having nightmares..
When she reached the top of the stairs, the clown was standing, just outside the bedroom. The babysitter ran, screaming in horror, and went into the childrens bedroom and locked the door. The police soon arrived and apprehend the "clown," who turns out to be a midget who somehow got into the house and had been living there for several weeks. He would come into the kids' rooms at nights and watch them while they slept. As the house was so large, he was able to avoid detection, surviving off their food, etc. He had been in the TV room right before the babysitter right came in there. When she entered he didn't have enough time to hide, so he just froze in place and pretended to be a statue.
