Killer Klowns 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 (as seen above). It is because of this film that I learned the word “coulrophobia”, the fear of clowns. This movie, along with that fucking awful clown from Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, completely turned happy-faced lookin’ mother fuckers against me. I am also slightly turned off by cotton candy. Anyway…
The original creators are preparing for another Killer Klowns flick in 2012. The Chiodo Brothers (Charles, Edward & Stephen) have been talking up the possibility of a Klowns sequel at horror conventions all year. The brothers have deemed their new film a “requel,” calling it a sort of melding between reboot and sequel, and it seems the new movie is marching toward a release sometime soon
Back in June, actor Grant Cramer (who played Mike Tobacco in the first Killer Klowns) told blogger Freddy in Space that he will reprise his role, and play a kind of mentor figure to two younger characters. He also provided an update on where production was headed at the time.
“We have a script and a commitment for all our funding but the money can’t be spent until we have a distribution deal in place so that’s where we are – talking to distributors,” he said.
Cramer also noted that the Chiodos are putting together a new batch of Killer Klowns for the occasion. The project also has a title: The Return of the Killer Klowns from Outer Space in 3D. Be sure to check out the teaser trailer and isit the flick’s official Facebook page .
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. And hey, it had a better love story than Twilight.
With that said, would you welcome a sequel? Could it work? Discuss in the comment section below.
