there's a thing where you adds 'in my ass' to the end of a movie title, so here are some…
Killer Klowns from Outer Space
In space, no one can eat ice cream.
Aliens, who look like clowns, arrive on Earth to capture and harvest people in order to use them as sustenance.

Hello and welcome to Hoop-Tober. Thank you to all of those participating. I am floored by the response and am excited by the amount of interaction between members both old and new.
Without further adieu:
Horror films in the 80's birthed a prodigiously talented roster of creative film professionals into the world. Frank Darabont, Dean Cundey, Kathryn Bigelow, Renny Harlan, Shane Black, to name a few, all started in or got their break in horror films. Many of them transitioned into more respectable fare in the 90's and beyond and helmed numerous blockbusters and Oscar winning films. For most, but not all, their talent was evident even in the lowest budgeted 80's horror's.
In the earliest years…
1. an abnormal fear of clowns.
Killer Klowns from Outer Space is one of those movies that has the mythic reputation of being so bad that they are good. Perhaps, I have no sense of discernment whatsoever, but after having finally gotten around to watching this film, I have realised that it is not so much that the film is poorly constructed, but rather that it is in only too successful in achieving the creation of a ludicrous and absurd carnivalesque nightmare, befitting a troupe of murderous buffoons from galaxies unknown.
Policeman Curtis Mooney is angry. Beset by young out-of-towner students, making out, drinking and clowning about, his small town peace is being disturbed by this new…
Killer clowns, from outer space. Holy shit!
No, Curtis Mooney, its not clowns its klowns.
Don't ask me why. Maybe Ed Boon and company had something to do with it? Well, I didn't see Sub-Zero or Scorpion running around so my only guess is that the misspelling of the word is merely an ode to how dastardly dumb but ridiculously brilliant this movie is.
I mentioned in one of my other reviews about my family's weekly trip to Blockbuster (RIP) when we were kids. Each family member got to rent their own movie; I was a twisted child and always rented shitty Friday the 13th sequels. One time my Dad rented this weird little movie for the whole family. We…
Part of Lise and Jonnies Horror-o-thon 2014 - except Lise didn't watch this one.
Perhaps only next to Space Jam (which I haven't seen) is a film ( Killer Klowns From Outer Space ) that so completely and honestly represents the human condition. And Ice Cream. And Cotton Candy. And poodle hair protagonists. And Killer Klowns.
Endless reasons to praise this film. If I went into detail, I'd be here for hours and I have to try to get 1 more horror film in before the sun comes up. It's incredibly sly about intent; it seems like it's just another lowkey goofball monster comedy but it's a full-blown, observational commentary on 80's commercial culture overload (there's so much materialistic junk here, the victims might as well all be wearing clown pants themselves- the ones with the baggy pockets), pop militarism (without taking the hammer-to-the-head approach of TerrorVision), and several classic movie character archetypes. Basically, this is a refreshingly Ash-less, Herbert West-free 80's cult product. No one mugs for the camera without tactful irony and the characters…
Killer clowns, from outer space. Holy shit!
After watching this I discovered that scheduled to come out in 2018 is The Return of the Killer Klowns from Outer Space in 3D... there is no way it will ever live up to expectations.
Killer clowns, mutant popcorn, cotton candy cocoons, a girlfriend stealing cop, two perverts in an ice cream truck and best of all... John Vernon as the phenomenal Curtis Mooney. "I made it through Korea I can make it through this bullshit!"
Horroctober VI: DuLac of the Dead
So did the brothers have sex with the lady clowns? My main question.
Okay, so this is my very first review on Letterboxd, and I don't know why of all films I chose this particular one to write about, but then again, why not? If a film is called "Killer Klowns from Outer Space", then I guess there is absolutely no better choice than to start with exactly this one.
Just by looking at the title of the film, it quickly becomes clear what we are dealing with here, as it oozes "trash, trash, TRASH" out of every single pore. I think it encapsulates every stereotype that has ever been used in naming a trash film. Personally, I find it quite hard to rate a trash film in an apt manner. I know,…
Excellent artistic design mixed with typical so-bad-it's-good humour makes Killer Klowns From Outer Space a delicious treat from start to finish.
This is one of those films that has stuck with me since I was a kid. It is a fun movie on every level, and such an absurd premise is still great to watch. The comedy is dark but perfect, and the gags are classic IMO. Gore is good when it happens, and the props and effects are perfect.

"What're you going to do with those pies, boys?"
Killer Klowns from Outer Space is one of the goofiest horror films that I've ever seen and I've seen some weird ones. It's fun though; especially the shadow puppet and ventriloquism scenes...
It's just an experience that needs to be seen, okay?
It's simply this, the perfect homage to 50's B-Movie monster movies with an 80's aesthetic. Nothing more and it works all the better for it with its amusing blend of Horror and Comedy and while there are creepy moments, it contains a buttload of hilarity to boot given the absurd nature of the alien homicidal clowns.
One of those two comedy relief brothers is a dead ringer for Daniel Radcliffe, it's almost creepy.

This seemed like a good idea, especially with all the clones appearing in the news recently.
