Post Credit Scene

Jamie is seen screaming loudly while gagged as a psychotically faced clown rapes him. Suddenly Jamie wakes up in bed, sweating and gasping but relieved it was a dream. He turns to the other side of the bed as the covers move to reveal Karen in her full clown costume but with added razor sharp teeth and holding a huge black dildo. Jamie suddenly wakes up in bed again and this time quickly looks over to see a normal, peacefully sleeping Karen.
