THE PLOT THUS FAR
Aliens who look like clowns come from outer space and terrorize a small town.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
The Chiodo Brothers, Wes Craven and Renny Harlin introduced me to horror. One night in 1989, I spent five hours watching “Killer Klowns from Outer Space”, “A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master” and “The Serpent and the Rainbow” back-to-back. Then, I watched “The Cat from Outer Space”. But, this isn’t about my love of alien cats and the Melmacians that eat them. This is about forming those primary appreciations of goofy horror and the masters that create them.
“Killer Klowns from Outer Space” remains an odd devil of a movie that I’ve bought in every home video incarnation. However, I can’t ever seem to get a copy of The Dickies’ music video for the theme song. The film hasn’t changed for those that are concerned. Alien Klowns come to Earth, shoot people into spools of Cotton Candy and then drink their blood. Sometimes, they even operate them like hand puppets. Great times to be had by all and well worth your time.
The Blu-Ray comes with a featurette, photo gallery and behind-the-scenes footage as the special features. The transfer is an amazing 1080p presentation for a film of limited resources. The DTS-HD 2.0 master audio track shows off the available front channel action. It’s not overly dynamic, but it works. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase.
