Kent McCoy, a real estate agent, is a loving husband and father who, for the birthday of his son Jack, hosts a party and invites a clown to amuse Jack and his friends. The clown accidentally goes to another party, but Kent discovers an old clown costume in the attic of one of the houses he is overseeing and decides to wear it, entertaining his son and his friends. After the party, Kent falls asleep still wearing the clown costume, but the next morning he is no longer able to take it off, as the body suit, wig, and red nose are progressively adhering to his skin. When his pregnant wife Meg tries to help Kent remove the fake nose, it rips from his flesh, wounding him. Kent also begins to show strange behaviour and a deep sense of hunger, with a noisy gurgling in his stomach.

The documentary follows horror movie fan and journalist Tal Zimerman as he tries to look at the reasons why people enjoy the horror genre. The genre is globally popular and is present in a wide variety of formats such as films, books, music, graphic novels, artwork, and video games, yet reactions to it can sometimes be polarized and in some instances Tal feels that the genre's fans are misunderstood. At the same time, Tal is conflicted over how he can be "disturbed by gruesome imagery showcased in the news, but thrives on blood and guts found in movies, books, music, graphic novels and video games" and as such sets out to try to find how horror affects his mind. For his research Tal interviews several different people, from genre filmmakers and writers to scientists and psychologists, to uncover why people enjoy horror and how perception, traditions, and beliefs help impact how horror is perceived and displayed in various countries and globally as a whole.
