Cult classic Killer Klowns From Outer Space turns 30 this year, and what better a way to celebrate than to bring the film and its zany characters to life? Later this month the Killer Klowns will invade Hollywood, and we’re expecting nothing less than madness. What’s a Killer Klown you say? Peep the original trailer from 1988 below!
“America’s fascination with Killer Klowns From Outer Space began on screen in 1988, as a group of clown-like aliens land their trans-dimensional space ship and terrorize a small American town. The film has achieved cult status with its clever blend of horror, science fiction and comedy.”
Taking place on Saturday, May 19th at The Montalban Theater in Hollywood, the film’s composer John Massari has put together a three-ring Sci-Fi/Horror celebration. The main event will feature a screening of the movie with the original music score performed live by The Hollywood Chamber Orchestra, conducted by the film’s composer John Massari, along with LA’s own punk legends The Dickies performing their famous “Killer Klowns From Outer Space Theme Song.”
Prior to the screening there will be a pre-show Q+A with Stephen Chiodo (writer/director), Charles Chiodo (writer/art director), Edward Chiodo (writer/producer), Grant Cramer (Mike Tobacco), Suzanne Snyder (Debbie Stone), members of The Dickies, and composer John Massari, moderated by Jim Branscome of Cinematic Void, along with a Kosmic Klown circus celebration with stilt walkers, balloon artists, contortionist, fortune tellers, magicians, the Killer Klowns, and much more!
