Killer Klowns from Outer Space
Stephen Chiodo, US 1988
This december Wansmakelijk Goed comes with an otherworldly Christmas special! This screening is extra special because our fellow Zienematist, Eltjo, will turn 65 years old soon. This joyful occasion is celebrated with one of his favorite films on the big screen.
One night, teenagers Mike and Debbie watch a comet crash outside their small town Crescent Cove. When Mike and Debbie investigate the impact site, they think they will encounter a comet, but instead there is a circus tent. Soon the teenagers find out that this is not a normal circus.
Killer Klowns from Outer Space is a true cult classic. It’s a parody of the 1950s Alien Invasion genre. This time, however, the aliens are man-eating clowns. Director Stephen Chiodo puts together the ultimate horror flick through a unique synthesis of well-known tropes from the horror genre: aliens, murderous clowns and cotton candy cocoons.
Brace yourselves for a “not-so-Christmasy” Zienema Christmas screening of Killer Klowns from Outer Space.
