KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE (1988) ***

This amusing comedic Sci-Fi horror flick is filled with great special effects, funny sight gags and homages to 50’s monster movies (especially The Blob and The Creeping Terror). An alien circus tent lands on Earth carrying demented clowns (err…Klowns) that kill the townsfolk with poisoned creampies and killer shadow puppets. They also turn people into cotton candy cocoons and drink their blood through crazy straws. They also decapitate a biker and turn the chief of police (the hilarious John Vernon from Animal House) into a human ventriloquist dummy. “What’s the matter? All we want to do is kill ya!” Hero John Allen (Deathstalker and the Warriors from Hell) Nelson figures out the only way to kill them is to shoot them in the nose. The supporting cast also includes Suzanne (Return of the Living Dead 2) Snyder, Royal (House 2) Dano, and future sitcom star Christopher Titus. Writers/producers/directors The Chiodo Brothers provided the excellent effects (they also worked on Critters and Team America). The awesome title song is by The Dickies.
