Arriving today on Blu-ray, KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE is one of the all-time greats in the field of campy horror movies. Telling the tale of a small town invaded by space aliens who look like circus clowns and use creme pies and cotton candy as weapons of mass destruction, the film sets a new high (or low) for guilty pleasures. The brainchild of designer/animators STEPHEN, EDWARD and CHARLES CHIODO, the movie stars GRANT CRAMER, SUZANNE SNYDER, JOHN ALLEN NELSON, CHRISTOPHER TITUS, ROYAL DANO and JOHN VERNON.
Because it’s been one of our favorites since its original release in 1988, we jumped at the chance to visit the Chiodo Brothers at their Burbank design studio to talk about KILLER KLOWNS and its continued success over the years. According to them, the trick was to play it straight and let the comedy take care of itself. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
