Tim’s Slasher Tweet Reviews: “Killer Klowns From Outer Space” (1988)

Tonight we bring you another excellent tweet-by-tweet review from our guest film critic Tim Schilling! I’m sure by now you guys are familiar with the concept: We take a movie and give you a running commentary through twitter. After the film is done, we will post the review over here at Slasher Studios. Tonight Tim takes a look at the vastly underrated comedy-horror epic “Killer Klowns from Outer Space.” Just remember, in space no one can eat ice cream….

Thoughts before the film:
80’s comedy horror, one of my favorite sub genres. I haven’t seen this movie in at least a billion years, and it scared the crap outta me back then.

Thoughts while watching:
0:02 Perfect 80’s music, check.
0:04 Oh please do keep your shirt on…
0:05 Cheesy 80’s special effects, check!
0:14 I bet the creators of Banjo Kazooie watched this high while making the game
0:18 Popcorn guns are terrifying.
0:21 Trippinnnn’.
0:22 This movie would have been perfect in 3D. [that may be the only time I’ll ever say that].
0:26 The sounds that these clowns make are gonna give me nightmares. Hopefully?
0:37 If I ever call the cops cause clowns are attacking they better believe me.
0:40 Alien popcorn.
0:41 …Alien popcorn that sounds like birds and then eats people.
0:43 Why do I think those shadow puppets are gonna eat/kill these people?
0:44 I wuz right, but does that mean the popcorn is people…?
0:48 Obviously this cop shoulda gone to college himself instead of complaining about all the kids.
0:51 Does this movie remind anyone else of Beetlejuice? There are a lot of similarities I think.
0:52 So far, it’s a great movie! I haven’t finished watching it but I would still recommend it.
0:55 Clowns don’t like it when they get shot apparently…
1:21 King Klown just gets poked with a pin and blows up…

#KillerKlownsFromOuterSpace is another example that the 80’s were the best decade of film. From the great music to the cheesy special effects to the corny acting & one liners, #KillerKlownsFromOuterSpace is a perfect horror-comedy.
