KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE (PG-13) TRANS WORLD ENTERTAINMENT (1988)
Starring: Grant Cramer, Suzanne Snyder, John Allen Nelson, John Vernon, Michael Siegel & more.
KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE is one of my all time favorite movies. I have seen this film so many times over the years, but don't think I ever reviewed it. The film is about a group of space klowns that fly across the universe and land on different planets to capture the inhabitants of that planet. Their space ship is a spinning top and when it lands on earth it transforms into a big top circus tent. A group of teens hanging out at make out point witness the ship landing near by and decide to go check it out. They just think it is a special circus and decide to start exploring the circus tent. Bad move of course! These KILLER KLOWNS all have huge heads with scary sharp teeth and evil looking make up that makes them look like monsters. They soon start to invade the town and capture the towns citizens. They do this in many ingenious ways like a popcorn gun that shoots popcorn that once attached to people starts eating them. There is also balloon animals that come alive and chase people. Shadow puppets that come to life and attacks people. My favorite was the ray gun that shoots at people and engulfs them in cotton candy cocoons. They take these cocoons back to their ship and in a special chamber. Once the chamber gets discovered we find out that they use the humans to suck out their blood for their own survival. The one way they can be stopped is by shooting them in their big red noses where they explode. This film is not an all out Horror flick, but a lot of the elements are in place and plays more like a Sci-Fi Comedy with Horror elements. Going into a film called KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE you know your going into a cheesy B-film that is not going to take itself too seriously. When watching this film, just sit back and enjoy the rid, unless you are already frightened by clowns to begin with. There has been many rumors for many years that they maybe remaking this film or making a sequel to this film. The good thing about this is that it is supposed to be done by the Chiodos Brothers who did the original film. Either way I would love to see another KILLER KLOWNS movie and I think it would do well as there is a huge cult following for this film! I want more KILLER KLOWNS!!!
