So I didn’t realize that it’s the 25th Anniversary of Killer Klowns from Outerspace (1988). I discovered this by the huge dedication, display, and full cast here at Son of Monsterpalooza.
I told one of the cast memembers, “Wow, 25 years that makes me feel a little old.” and his reply “How do you think we feel? We were in it.” Awww.
Ordinarily clowns are are terrifying to most, I’m not a huge fan but I have willingly gone into an all clown haunted house. Yes, you read that correctly. Seriously, if you were to judge this movie just by the pictures you’d probably want to avoid it if you had Coulrophobia, a fear of clowns. But in all seriousness this movie is so 80s campy that I don’t know how you can do anything but laugh hysterically throughout? Unless, just looking at any kind of clown freaks you out, but if that were true you’d probably avoid this post all together.
This movie is the very definition of a cult classic. If you’ve never seen this movie, I think it’s time! It’s streaming on Netflix in the US.
Here’s a little taste to wet your appetite, this is a playlist of great clips from the movie.
And where would we be without a cheesy music video?
