Killer Klowns from Outer Space 1988
"In Space No One Can Eat Ice Cream"
No matter what you think about this movie it is probably not how you imagine. The first time I saw it I thought it was going to be this goofy romp with people in Clown makeup. I wasn't prepared for the incredible amount of detail that was put into it. The Klowns look amazing and all the little things, like the big top being a spaceship, just add to the film's cleverness. While many of the things are intentionally funny, the way they played the movie straight makes it stand out from others that have tried to do something milar. If you've never seen it, you must track this one down.
Plot Synops: College kids Mike and Debbie find a spaceship full of alien klowns that want to turn humans into cotton candy.
The DVD is easy to find and it is currently available to rent or stream from Netflix.
