Movie Review: "Killer Klowns from Outer Space" (1988)

Image Source
Movie"Killer Klowns from Outer Space"
Director: Stephen Chiodo
Year: 1988
Rating: PG-13
Running Time: 1 hour, 28 minutes

While hanging out at The Top of the World, a make-out spot for college kids, Debbie (Suzanne Snyder) and Mike (Grant Cramer) see a giant shooting star, which appears to have landed just over the hill. They go to investigate and find a big circus tent. This is no normal circus tent: what they find inside are big cocoons of cotton candy that actually have dead people from the town decomposing inside of them. The circus tent turns out to be a space ship run by a group of KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE!~~!11``1! They try to warn the police, who at first don't believe them, but if they are going to stop the klowns, they will need to convince Dave (John Allen Nelson) and get his help to defeat the klowns.

This movie is so ridiculous, and yet so ridiculously amazing at the same time. For a low budget film, the klowns look pretty incredible! Some of the quotes from this movie are just so absurdly fantastic that they bear repeating multiple times every day. It even has the John Vernon, who famously played the dean in "Animal House." "Killer Klowns" started the "K" trend before the Whoredashians...I mean, the Kardashians, but these klowns wear less makeup and look more realistic! This movie is klever, and has become a kult klassic...


My Rating: 8/10
BigJ's Rating: 9/10
IMDB's Rating: 5.8/10
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 75%
Do we recommend this movie: ABSOLUTELY YES!!!
