Killer Clowns from Outer Space, the 80’s cult-classic film, is about alien clowns who come and earth to eat humans. Their special technique for eating humans is by spinning them into gigantic gobs of cotton candy and then sucking out their fluids through a straw. It is because of this film that I learned the word “coulrophobia”, the fear of clowns. It’s not because I’m scared of them, but my friend was and this film scared the living shit out of him when he was young. Though, I am slightly turned off my cotton candy.
Anyway, Grant Cramer, who played the lead, Mike Tobacco, in the 1988 cult film, has revealed that there is a script and funds to make a 3D sequel. The only obstacle they have at the moment is that he and the Chiodo brothers, who wrote and directed the first film, are looking for a distributor. Once that is settled, Cramer believes everything will be a go.
As far as story goes, this is what Cramer had to say:
“Well, I don’t want to say too much about the story at this early juncture but I will say that it is connected to the first movie and my character will be the mentor to the two new young leads that have to try save the world from the Klowns when they return. They’re also trying to save themselves because the bad stuff the Klowns do at first gets blamed on them.”
The original film is one of those flicks that always comes up in drunk conversation. Goes something like *hiccup* “hey…remember Killer Klowns From Outer Space? Hahaha…yeaaaa, good flick. Or, “Shiiiiiiiit that movie made me hate clowns, GAWD!”. Either way, everyone remembers it. Love it or not, it’s a piece of 80’s nostalgia.
With that said. Would you welcome a sequel? Could it work? Is there any love left for films that are good because they are bad? Discuss in the comment section below:
