    A delightfully schlocky horror comedy about a race of vicious, bloodthirsty invading aliens who look like circus clowns - but with very sharp teeth. [15 Aug 2013, p.C01]

    Utterly ridiculous, the dialogue exquisitely dumb, the acting soooo bad, it's one for cheap laughs. show more

    Outside of viewing the film as a child or with a group of pals on drunken Saturday night, watching a bunch of loosely stringed sequences of Killer Klowns attacking townsfolk only gets you so far. It's a fun picture. But nothing more. show more
