Are you a fan of horror flicks? If so, then a red balloon probably means something sinister to you. Its presence can only promise that Pennywise the Dancing Clown from Stephen King's It is nearby. To commemorate the terrifying antagonist—and the film's sequel It Chapter 2—online purveyor Firebox is selling a novelty lamp shaped like a red balloon. That alone is creepy, but when you turn it on, it casts an eerie scarlet glow over its surroundings and makes things even spookier.

Standing a little over 13 inches tall, the lamp bulb looks like a real balloon. It’s held upright with a white string that doubles as a stand and drapes over the table to give the illusion of weightlessness. There’s an on/off switch at the base of the balloon, and the entire thing is powered by a USB cable that comes with the lamp.

The Pennywise Balloon Lamp is now available for pre-order with an expected stock date of October 10, 2019. Get it on the Firebox website (if you dare).

Looking for a spooky way to decorate your home? This eerie novelty lamp is modeled after the balloon of Pennywise the Dancing Clown from It.
