Starring: John Vernon, one of those guys who has been in everything. The blond love interest from Weird Science. Another guy who has been in a ton of tv stuff. And Christoper Titus for like 10 seconds.
Review: Long before we had the scary clown epidemic of 2016, there was a better, simpler time where clowns were just invading our planet to eat us. This time, also known as the late 1980’s brought us the CLASSIC of Western Cinema known as Killer Klowns from Outerspace.
This amazing horror comedy truly stands the test of time. It’s ridiculously over the top and doesn’t take itself seriously. Except for John Vernon’s final scene which is beautifully creeptastic.
The design is genius and having the clowns use commonly known gags as methods of violence and mayhem is perfect.
A true Kult Klassic!
Where I found it: HBO, but lots of streaming channels.
How much I paid for it: I paid for this movie the first time I watched it, probably back in the early 90’s . I paid for it with my innocence and my ability to trust clowns. I am still paying for it today.
Points of interest: THERE’S A SEQUEL IN THE WORKS!!! http://www.imdb.com/title/
My Favorite Line: Nobody stores cotton candy like this.
The Money Shot: As mentioned, John Vernon’s final scene is excellent, and is the closest thing to “scary” in this entire movie.
I love bad movies. LOVE them. I have several definitions of bad, but it all comes down to “bad on purpose” and “bad by accident”.
I will watch it if:
it can be described as science fiction, fantasy, or horror (Sometimes I will watch action comedy but these are less likely.)
it is described as a mystery or thriller and a serial killer is mentioned in the description.
it has less than three stars on Netflix
the cast includes Ron Perlman, Rutger Hauer, Henry Rollins, Bill Mosely, Bruce Campbell, Clancy Brown or Malcolm McDowell
Lovecraft, Cthulu or Dragons are mentioned in the title, tag line or box art.
