The Horror Of...Killer Klowns from Outer Space, In Short

Perhaps you need some darkly humorous and strange movie choices this Halloween? Something that meshes ideas that just shouldn't gel? Something with invading aliens? The harvesting of humans? And, perhaps, clowns?

Well, I think I have the movie for you.

Killer Klowns from Outer Space

Killer Klowns from Outer Space is the 1988 creation of the Chiodo brothers (Stephen and Charles). It tells the strange story of what befalls an Anytown, USA, as aliens arrive, in their interstellar bigtop.

Here now, these aliens have the form of clowns. Scary clowns. The fact that most people seem to react benignly to them through much of the movie is lost on me, but they are weird and creepy clowns.
And they are here on a mission. Harvest humans.

And using various weapons, tool, and tricks they mess with their meals, and then take them. Nothing seems like it can stop them.

So it will fall to ice cream sellers, teens, and a cop to save the town's citizens from a one way trip to space, and the stomachs of the Killer Klowns.

If you need a bit of ridiculous with your genuine stalking horror, this may fill your Halloween needs.

Remember, the Klowns are coming for you.
