I cannot believe I haven’t yet added this movie to the docket for you guys. But I’m glad I remembered it. Killer Klowns from Outer Space is one of the most classic dumb “horror” movies of all time. It’s got all you want in a classic stupid movie that tries to scare you.
First of all let’s get through what this movie is about. Put simply, aliens who look like clowns come from outer space and terrorize a small town. How do they do this? By shooting people with ray guns that creates a cotton candy shield that traps and kills them. What do they then do with the bodies? It’s funny you ask. They take silly straws and slurp the blood out of them.
Of course their space ship looks like a circus tent and it’s located where? At an amusement park. Funny because these might be the scariest looking clowns in the entire universe and yet no one in the movie seems to be freaked out by their appearance.
Oh and let’s not forget the dean from Animal House plays a mean cop. There are lame sidekick characters, a reasonably attractive female star (who was the Nazi girl in Seinfeld), and the music is awesome.
I don’t want to ruin the movie for you but the “leader” clown is awesome. I gotta say though, just the appearance of the clowns alone freaked me out.

How could you possibly avoid seeing this movie? It’s way too good.
