Killer Klowns from Outer Space [DVD] [1988]

This underground hit from the '80s comes to DVD in a widescreen anamorphic picture format (with a theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1) and a single audio track, English Dolby 2.0, with Spanish and French subtitles and closed-captioning available. Special or bonus features include a bit of behind-the-scenes footage, a director-narrated audio commentary, a visual effects commentary, some information on the film's score, a short featurette on the formation and fleshing out of the character concepts, and a photo gallery of stills. While the picture quality is of about a VHS level of detail and coloring, the sound quality is strictly mono and barely adequate, just as it was in the film's original theatrical release.

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
