If you're 13 years-old and staying up all night with some friends, "Killer Klowns From Outer Space" is the best kind of movie to catch on late night cable. The film radiates with a PG-13 menace - it's off-the-rails crazy and surprisingly violent at times, but never crosses the line into truly disturbing territory. It's all in good fun...at least until a klown knocks your head off your shoulders with one punch.
Watched in a genuine video-rental VHS (with all the trailers beforehand) midnight cult projection in a tiny bar with a crowd laughing and throwing quips at the wall. So the best way, I'd wager. Might not be as much alone and sober. Aside from that, it's what it says on the title. Jolly.
Well this was a weird movie. It plays like a cheesy '80s teen comedy except with grotesquely horrifying nightmare clowns. These clowns are genuinely scary even though this is more of a comedy than a horror movie. I'm not that big a fan of the comedy-horror genre, so this wasn't really my thing. I would have rather seen these clowns in a 100% horror movie.
It’s a weird movie that’s also really conventional at times as well. Very odd picture with a few nice moments. The last 20 mins or so felt too rushed and abrupt. Did enjoy John Vernon a lot and the score was good.
