Killer Klowns

Killer Klowns
We watched Killer Klowns From Outer Space last night.

Klowns has always been a bit of an oddity to me. It’s obviously a ridiculously goofy movie, but it’s never played as anything but earnest – and I love it because of that.

Post Scream/Scary Movie every bad movie actor is on on the joke, and that guts a lot of the magic of watching a terrible film. I’m convinced Killer Klowns is only remembered from an era with a glut of bad horror because of its earnestness. If they’d gone into it like, say, Hobgoblins, it would edge out of enjoyable and into “Shut Up”.

    I always found it interesting that they had to make the clowns from outer space to explain their deviant behaviour. Let’s face it, clowns are ALWAYS evil!
