You'll Be Dead On Arrival When KILLER KLOWNS Hits Blu
What did we do to deserve Arrow Video? In 2017 alone they have gifted us with exceptional releases of everything from Brain Damage, Re-Animator, and The Bird with the Crystal Plumage to their new distribution arm Arrow Academy and their gorgeous release of Billy Wilder’s The Apartment. And it looks like 2018 will be no different with a long overdue proper release, of a Ghastly Grinning fav, The Chiodo Brothers carnival of mayhem Killer Klowns from Outer Space.
A diamond in the rough from the designers of the Critters franchise, Klowns is madcap bloody silliness fueled by sugar highs and a morbid sense of humor. Killer Klowns lands with an all new 4K restoration from the original camera negative, along with newly remastered sound and a plethora of features that will rot your candy loving heart to the core! This set is coming our way March 26th/27th with newly commissioned artwork from Sara Deck!
Step aside Pennywise… These Killer Klowns from Outer Space are outta this world – literally! – and they’re packing deadly popcorn guns and cotton candy cocoons!
When Mike and his girlfriend Debbie warn the local police that a gang of homicidal alien-clowns have landed in the nearby area (in a spaceship shaped like a circus big-top, no less), the cops are naturally sceptical. Before long however, reports are coming in from other anxious residents detailing similar run-ins with the large-shoed assailants. There can no longer be any doubt – the Killer Klowns from Outer Space are here, and they’re out to turn the Earth’s population into candy floss!
Written and produced by the Chiodo brothers – knowns for their work on a host of special-effects laden hits such as Team America: World Police and the Critters movies – Killer Klowns from Outer Space is a cinematic experience unparalleled in this galaxy, now newly restored by Arrow Video for this stellar edition.
