Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1988) was
such a wacky sci-fi horror flick, that they couldn't
even spell the word "clowns" right. This movie has
become a cult classic over the years, spurned in large
part due to people’s fear of clowns (coulrophobia).
Over the years, this movie has gained mostly positive
reviews, and it turned out to be a mega huge financial
The movie starts with small town teens,
Deb and Mike, hanging out at make-out point, doing the
same type of things that you use to do (yes, you). Off
in the distance, a comet falls to the ground. Like any
inquisitive really-needs-to-mind-her-own-business young
lady, Deb wants to investigate, and what do they find?
A circus tent full of crazy, gonna-kill-em-all clowns,
who want to turn the people of earth into cotton candy.
Deb and Mike report what they have found
to the police, who do not believe them until they see
the cotton candy clown caused cocoon carnage (very nice
alliteration, eh?) at make out point caused by the
clowns. The clowns end up in the town, killing people
by using their ray guns and other un-sundry methods of
deceit. In the end, Deb is captured by the clowns, but
Mike and police man Dave save her, blowing up the clown
ship as it lifts off into outer space.
