|Killer Klowns From Outer Space (1988)|
|Writers:||Charles Chiodo and Stephen Chiodo|
|Starring:||Grant Cramer, Suzanne Snyder, John Allen Nelson, and Royal Dano|
Killer Klowns is, without a doubt, a movie that is completely devoid of all logic. This turns out to be precisely why it has caught on with fans throughout the years. Does it truly make any sense why a clown from outer space would make a balloon dog in order to search for humans? How would they know what a dog is or use it, in particular, as a way to track humans? I mean, if dogs perhaps originate from the Klown planet, then perhaps the Klowns should just use dogs instead? Such ideas make zero sense, but does the movie care? Not in the least. If you can’t get along with the joke, then audiences are likely to give up before the movie even starts. Honestly, how would a killer clown from outer space actually know anything about Washington’s crossing of the Delaware in order to make a shadow puppet of the scene on a wall. The filmmakers included this reference to American history as if these clowns were aware of what was happening on earth, but if this were to be a massive invasion with tons of calculated planning, why was only one ship sent? If someone wanted to, they could fill up an entire review with the weird ideas spread throughout this movie, but ultimately, that is a grand part of its quirky charm.
