ABOUT THE MOVIE: KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE (1988)
Director: Stephen Chiodo
Runtime: 88 min
KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE is a 1988 American science fiction horror comedy written, directed and produced by the Chiodo Brothers, and starring Grant Cramer, Suzanne Snyder, John Allen Nelson and John Vernon. When a small town is invaded by aliens from outer space who are capturing and killing the townspeople, no one takes them seriously. Why? The aliens all look like circus clowns, use weapons that look clown like, and all have painted on smiles. Only a few of the young people in the town realize the danger and of course no one believes them. Armed with an ice cream truck they try and rescue their friends.
KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE is preceded by a short film presented by our friends at Quickdraw Animation Society.
"KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE is a fun and occasionally unsettling cult film that is well worth a watch for B movie enthusiasts or horror fans." – The Movie Sleuth
