Take a Ride on Arrow Video's Nightmare Merry-Go-Round with their Special Edition of KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE!


Few movies manage to fully embrace the absurdity of their premise as much as KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE does. It gleefully, and unapologetically revels in its insane concept, and made a lifetime fan out of me when I first laid eyes on it in my youth. And now, on the very cusp of KILLER KLOWN's 30th Anniversary, Arrow Video is delivering what may very well be the definitive release of this one of a kind tale of diabolical bozos from another world!

Synopsis: Step aside Pennywise... These KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE are outta this world! Literally! And they're packing deadly popcorn guns and cotton candy cocoons!

When Mike and his girlfriend Debbie warn the local police that a gang of homicidal alien-clowns have landed in the nearby area (in a spaceship shaped like a circus big-top, no less), the cops are naturally skeptical. Before long however, reports are coming in from other anxious residents detailing similar run-ins with the large-shoed assailants. There can no longer be any doubt the KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE are here, and they're out to turn the Earth s population into candy floss!

Written and produced by the Chiodo brothers knowns for their work on a host of special-effects laden hits such as TEAM AMERICA: WORLD POLICE and the CRITTERS movies, KILLER KLOWNS is a cinematic experience unparalleled in this galaxy!
