Eagan Tilghman's little brother Louie is probably a great kid, but he's become a viral sensation because he also knows how to be terrifying. After his sensational photo shoot as the modern version of IT monster Pennywise the Clown spread like wildfire around the internet just a few days ago, the brothers teamed up for another go at Pennywise, this time using the classic Tim Curry version from the first IT adaptation.

Want a balloon?

As you can see in the gallery above, this second Pennywise costume is just as terrifying as the first. The thing about Curry's Pennywise is he wasn't outwardly terrifying like the new one, played by Bill Skarsgard in the upcoming film. Instead, he was just a normal old clown (until he, you know, exposed his sharp fanged teeth and attacked you).

Tilghman doesn't only go for creepy clowns with his little siblings. He's also done shoots with his kid sister and brothers as X-23, Logan, Marty and Doc Brown, The Joker, Jack Sparrow, Cruella de Vil, and his mother even got in on the fun as Maleficent.

Hopefully this is the last time little Louie dresses in creepy clown cosplay, lest he float right into the nightmares of his family and fans.
