Review

Equal parts cheesy and grotesque, the Klown effects are fabulous --Film Freak

Compellingly paced, cleverly designed, and sufficiently impish, "Killer Klowns from Outer Space" is a rare achievement in cult cinema --Blu-ray.com

a wild romp that puts its money where it counts (in the effects, they look great!) --JoBlo

I've loved this film since the first time I saw it almost 20 years ago.
It grabbed me right from the start when the superb theme tune by The Dickies kicked in. The clowns themselves are suitably menacing, they look like badly filled fancy dress costumes gone wild but when they show their teeth it's time to watch out. The line "they were travelling through outer space and stopped for something to eat" describes the plot succinctly and Cove Crescent is their chosen pit-stop.
John Vernon as the red-neck deputy Curtis Mooney is the only really bright light in the acting stakes. The special effects are not that brilliant but that suits the movie well, this is not an FX extravaganza but it is one of the best low budget comedy horror movies you will see.
Apart from the big-top space ship and low-grade plastic weapons there's also the klown kar, the klown women (looking as sexy as the stripper in Funny Man), popcorn that grows into monsters and custard pies that dissolve flesh; almost every aspect of the circus clown act is twisted into some fiendish device here.
If I had one complaint it would be the lack of any real extras, most notably the 20 minute "making of" featurette that appeared on the R1 DVD release many years ago is not included here. That grumble aside thanks to the Chiodo Brothers for making a movie that cheers me up every time I watch it and The Dickies for that brilliant theme tune.

The Chiodo Brothers (Stephen, Charles and Edward) are legends of the makeup and Animatronics fields - From the base '80s-ness of "Critters" to the low-brow satire that is "Team America : World Police" they have reigned supreme in this department, giving even Screaming Mad George a slight run for his money. But why give them a movie of their very own? Surely that would be the same as asking a Filing Clerk for a Nuclear Power Plant to take over for the weekend whilst the Operations Staff go bobbing for apples? Would it Hell.

In a decade filled with quirky B-Movie goodness, it takes a team with vision to present you with something that manages to stand out amongst a crowd with such nuance; Aliens that arrive from the depths of Outer Space that strangely resemble clowns, resplendant with many clownish accoutrements. All of this is set within the usual "aliens-with-mysterious-agenda-terrorise-American-Hick-Town-and-are-defeated" motif, so apart from the Clourophobia fetish, what does this movie give you that is new? The answer lies within the Chiodo Brother's work on the Clowns themselves - Considering the brothers used almost all their budget on pre-production and STILL managed to build such rouge-splattered juggernauts beggars belief. They rock, Insane Clown Posse are exceedingly jealous and such. Hats off.

So, movie-wise the film just works. DVD-wise? bare bones, widescreen transfer, hideous packaging. Looks like a 1985 VHS release, "The Journey Of Natty Gann" perhaps. No matter, Region 1 has had this for yonks, as per usual Region 2 is just beginning to catch up. You know you have to have it!

In the endless effort to expand my collection of cult/trash-cinema "classics", I decided to give the Killer Klowns a whirl. What I saw was one of the most bizarre and absurd flicks I've ever laid eyes on! Needless to say, this one's definitely a "keeper" for my DVD shelf, filed right next to that DeLaurentiis 'Flash Gordon' flick and 'The Thing With Two Heads!' The whole film is so unbelievably ridiculous, you just can't help but be entertained by it!
Indeed, it has it all: A preposterous premise that somehow got approved by the studio suits. Less-than-stellar acting by a few of the principals, and the "hero" playing his part a little too straight-laced. The perversion of various implements of klownery into weapons of annihilation. Silly klown antics gone horribly wrong. It's ludicrously fun to watch on those days when some pretentious bit of "serious" avant-garde celluloid simply ain't gonna cut it.
The special features included with the movie are of the standard type you'd expect to see on a Collector's Edition DVD. There's behind-the-scenes featurettes, a theatrical trailer, deleted scenes, and a commentary track by the movie's creators. In the secondary track, the Chiodo brothers go over the usual stuff you'd expect to hear in a commentary track, including their childhood dreams of becoming to be movie-makers, discussions about how many of the characters were based on childhood friends, memories of the actors that played the various roles, and certain scenes that were particularly difficult to film. Throw in a few quasi-tangential anecdotes, and (voila) you have the Killer Klowns Kommentary Trakk in a nutshell.
Then there's the "Easter Egg" materials, which pop up when you let the main menu display run for a couple of minutes.

The title is a dead giveaway. This is a camp weirdo fright film, with a healthy dosage of comedy, in the style of other horror-comedies such as Shaun of The Dead and American Werewolf in London. This is a tale of an alien clown invasion. A circus tent spaceship lands in a small U.S. town, and when a young couple break into the tent to explore, it triggers the attention of the Killer Klowns, who then go on the rampage in the town, killing people they stumble across, with their very specialised hunting skills. This is a 1950's B-Movie (think of The Blob but with clowns instead of goo), with great colour and imaginative set design, especially the interior of the spaceship tent, which looks like something Willy Wonka would have constructed. Although the film had a relatively low budget, this doesn't harm it in the slightest. The costumes are surreal, the music is perfectly judged, and the kill scenes, though pretty mild, show directorial flair. Put simply, this should have been awful, but it all comes together to give a highly enjoyable spoof horror, perfect for a evening with some beer and popcorn.
