    Synopsis


    Killer Klowns from Outer Space
    This low-budget cult classic horror spoof has one of the great movie titles of all time. Mike (Grant Cramer) and his sweetheart, Debbie (Suzanne Snyder), are smooching on lover's lane when they see what appears to be a meteorite crashing over the horizon. They loosen their liplock long enough to investigate and find a curious circus tent. There they discover malevolent clowns who stop their victims with popcorn-shooting guns and acid-drenched pies in order to feast on human blood. The unfortunates are then entombed into inescapable cotton-candy cocoons. Officer Dave Hanson (John Allen Nelson) is called to investigate with help from Officer Mooney (John Vernon). For those viewers who already think clowns are a little creepy to begin with, this one will push them over the edge. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

      Cheesy, Over the Top, bad acting and AWESOME

      Posted

      This is a a good movie, don't listen to those who said this is stupid, I mean really what do you expect when you see a movie titled Killer Klowns from Outerspace a msaterpiece of cinematic history, your gonna get a movie that is Cheesy over the top, a movie that probably doesn't have that good of acting but yet it still is very entertaining, Clowns are feared by many people, so what's not scary about clowns coming from outerspace and capturing people inside balloons and cotton candy cocoons and drinking your blood through a crazy twisty straw. I myself love this movie because it captues the 80's, the 80's were flamboyant and over the top and pushing the limit on everyhting. The movie also has a good score and a awesome song by The Dickies written specifcally for the movie that is played at the opening and closing credits. Do yourself a favor and get this movie, its funny and serious at the same time which the Chiodo Brother did a good job of balancing, I don't see really anything wrong with it, It has good special features, audio commentary, like I said before it does not have the video for The Dickies Killer Klowns song, which I think it shoud have, but other than that, it's a fun experience and it's a freakin cult classic.

      Oh, yes! A classic 80$ cheesy cult classic horror film up there with the likes of Plan 9 from Outer Space and Ghoulies, KKFOS is a unique film with budget restricting props and effects yet gives the watcher something fun mixing scifi, the circus and horror all in one. It's got that great 80$ time piece nostalgia that will still give us 80$ teens awesome memories and be a trip for younger viewers to watch. I love movies like this because of the practical effects used. On the DVD are great featurettes which show you many aspects into the making of the film along with interviews with it's creators, which always makes buying films like this on DVD more worthwhile. If you like B Movies, this is a definite one to own!

      This is the movie that started the scary Klown fad. This movie is a must see 80's flick. I love it and my kids loved it and still do and when I saw that I could get it on Blu-ray and on sale I had to have it. The movie is just what it is so do not expect Academy award acting but the theme and the Klowns are just too original. If you love a good horror story that is not over the top gory then buy this. It is funny and creepy all in the same. Never gets old watching it. Made when Hollywood was still making a movie from an original script. Man those Klowns are nasty and creepy.

      So, the new version of IT was great, but let's not forget these Killer Klowns who were on the scene years ago...........this Bluray gives them a fantastic revival. For both new and old fans, you'll find a great, fun, fantastic sci fi/horror romp here! The Chiodo Bros ramp up the ante on all levels and do so with great fx and story, renegade film making at its best! This shocker has gloriously stood the test of time, if you haven't seen it, DO SO NOW!

      Killer Klassic 80's Movie

      Hey CallawayMan, I don't know what movie you were watching, but what did you expect from an 80's Drive-in B movie, all glitze and glamour, not a chance, it was made to be a spoof that is funny and outrageous, wasn't meant to be nothing less, it was meant to be stupid & over the top, I myself love this movie because it captues the 80's and everyhting about that period, the other thing i love about this movie is the Dickies Song: Killer Klowns From Outter Space.

      Killer Klowns on Bluray

      Killer Klowns has got to be one of the silliest Schlock Horror films that arrived out of the late 1980s. The perfect movie to watch on a Friday Night. This a modern restoration using a MPEG-4 AVC and DTS-HD Master Audio. The video quality however is much better than the audio quality, which dips at certain points. The Bluray release contains 11 extra goodies to sift through as well. Overall, a B-Movie worth collecting. Its a very colorful film and very hilarious.

      I'm pretty sure I had the soundtrack to this before I ever saw it. It's a four-song EP by The Dickies. Regardless, this movie is even more fun than the album. A cool story, fantastic FX by The Chiodo Brothers, and campy dialogue and acting make this well worth the under ten dollars price at Best Buy. If the title caught your attention, I see no reason why you shouldn't enjoy it.

      This film came out in 1988, and the acting is just like that: 80's acting. This film is so bad, you have to love it! I'd seen this when I was much younger once, and then just recently caught the ending on TV. You won't look at cotton candy the same. I think even those afraid of clowns won't mind watching this, it's so goofy and campy.
