In glorious 35mm!!!

The most forehead-exploding big-budget scifi/horror/comedy of the ‘80s, written and directed by the special effects wizards behind CRITTERS and the Large Marge monsterface scene from PEE-WEE’S BIG ADVENTURE. A circus tent-shaped meteor crashlands in the forest, releasing an army of neon-colored, face-painted intergalactic creatures who mummify humans in cotton candy cocoons and slurp their sweetened blood through crazy straws. These diabolical bozos mow through the populace using only the most entertaining means: invisible cars, carnivorous shadow puppets, popcorn blasters, decapitating boxing matches, hand-to-spinal-cord ventriloquism and much, much more. The only people with the guts to stand up to these extraterrestrial sillybones are two kind-hearted teens and the horny local ice cream vendors. Watch for thundering man’s-man actor John Vernon as the homophobic small town cop who just isn’t gonna put up with any of this space clown shit. All this topped off with a theme song by pioneering goofpunk band The Dickies. Not to be viewed by anyone who fear clowns or enjoying life. (Zack)
