A Clockwork Orange Fandoms

Fandoms

Fans of A Clockwork Orange enjoy dressing up in Alex's iconic uniform and raping people while singing "Singin' in the Rain." Yikes. That isn't the kind of fandom you want associated with your movie.

But numerous copycat crimes swept the U.K. after the release of A Clockwork Orange. There was the aforementioned rape, and a gang of young men beat a homeless person to death, like in one of the film's early scenes.

Thankfully, the Orange-inspired ultra-violence has diminished over the years. Fans can still dress up as droog in both original and sexy flavors…as long as they promise to behave themselves.
