Killer Klowns from Outer Space is a 1988 cult classic sci-fi horror comedy directed by The Chiodo Brothers. The film centers on an invasion of Earth by alien beings who resemble circus clowns. Using circus-themed weapons and traveling in a spaceship that looks like a big top tent, these murderous clowns descend upon a small American town. As they turn unsuspecting residents into cotton candy cocoons to consume later, a group of young locals attempt to thwart the clowns' sinister plans. With its campy humor, unique special effects, and over-the-top premise, the movie has garnered a dedicated fanbase over the years.
