This low-budget cult classic horror spoof has one of the great movie titles of all time. Mike (Grant Cramer) and his sweetheart, Debbie (Suzanne Snyder), are smooching on lover's lane when they see what appears to be a meteorite crashing over the horizon. They loosen their liplock long enough to investigate and find a curious circus tent. There they discover malevolent clowns who stop their victims with popcorn-shooting guns and acid-drenched pies in order to feast on human blood. The unfortunates are then entombed into inescapable cotton-candy cocoons. Officer Dave Hanson (John Allen Nelson) is called to investigate with help from Officer Mooney (John Vernon). For those viewers who already think clowns are a little creepy to begin with, this one will push them over the edge. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi
This movie is exactly what it advertises to be! How refreshing. The title says it all. How many times did a movie bill itself to be something it wasn't. The movie's creators created the quintessential "B" movie about a small town being over taken by creatures from outer space. The acting was right on the mark, and equalled the most famous of the old horror movies such as 'The Blob' or "IT". Add the 1980's sound track and the 'Miami Vice' white linen jackets with pushed up sleeves and you've captured another really 'horror' element. :)
Everyone should watch this movie - just to say you did.
