Pop Punk Radio Halloween Movie Fest 2014: #4 - Killer Klowns From Outer Space (1988) - 80's Category

Coulrophobia is the fear of clowns. If you aren't already afraid of those way-too-happy creeps, you might change your mind after our fourth selection for Halloween Movie Fest 2014: Killer Klowns From Outer Space.





This 1988 film satisfies the first half of our 80's category and two things that really seem to define 80's horror movies are their cheese-ball campy themes and soundtracks. Killer Klowns definitely does not disappoint on the musical front. The main theme song "Killer Klowns From Outer Space" was written and performed by The Dickies, who also released an album of the same name.



Killer Klowns is a stupidly bad movie, but that's what makes it fun to watch. The movie doesn't take itself seriously. It's a film about aliens who look like clowns and arrive to earth in a giant flying circus tent to terrorize a small town and turn humans into cotton candy for food and/or fuel. Why should it be taken seriously?

If you learn anything from this post, it should be to never, ever mess with a klown's bike...
