5-0 out of 5 stars Thank you, Chiodo long last!
Attention, all beloved Killer Klown cult fans! Our all-time favorite homicidal, bloodthirsty, and cotton candy-weaving bozos from beyond will finally be receiving their long-overdue video re-release this fall! I especially want to thank Stephen, Charles, and Edward Chiodo for listening ardently to their legion of loyal fans and being able to bring their hideous big-top wonders back since their hitting of the silver screen 12 years earlier! Only one question: how come no DVD or VHS widescreen versions? The art direction in this classic black comedy really warrants a 1.85:1 canvas, not to mention a Dolby Digital remastering to accentuate the Klowns' chilling chuckles and John Mussari's sinister musical score!

Okay, for those of you who have been living in a secluded cave since 1988, KKFOS is a must-have film for any seasoned B-horror movie buff. It is the uncanny tale of a coastal California town that becomes beseiged by a pernicious race of alien klowns that cruises through the galaxies in a circus-tent starship and has an insatiable appetite for human blood. These wily, vile bozos arrive with an arsenal of mutagenic popcorn, lethal cotton candy phasors, acidic cream pies, and many other deadly circus tricks they deploy in order to capture and harvest the town's dullard citizens as cotton-candy-cocooned snack munchies. Only a clique of college kids and a rookie cop are aware of the klowns' nefarious plan, and they must do all they can in order to save the village from a fate that's no laughing matter! Sure, the plot to KKFOS sounds like a 1950's sci-fi derivative, but it is accompanied with impressive costume design, whimsical art direction, and captivating make-up and puppetry effects from Fantasy II F/X ("The Terminator", "The Abyss") that really exploit the low budgetary constraints that were imposed on this indie masterpiece. The real fear in KKFOS comes from taking the benevolent attributes of clowns and the circus and inverting them into elements of a child's warped nightmare. However, it does have its fair share of baffoonish comedy (most notable are the goofy Terrenzi Bros) to balance out the freaky death scenes. John Vernon definitely gives a hammy, but hysterical performance as Officer Mooney, the embittered police chief who scoffs the idea of murderous klowns in his town...until they finally make a "dummy" out of him, literally! All of this comes in a PG-13 package with no nudity and only mild "ketchup gore" for the audience.

One thing's for sure about KKFOS re-release, I'll be well-insured when my original Media Home Entertainment VHS copy becomes irreparably worn-out, which is almost certain to happen soon! Also, I just cannot wait until the sequel finally comes out (hopefully by next year)!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Fatally Funny & Scary Ride Through The Big Top...
It's hard to believe that an innocuous PG-13 B-movie such as the Chiodo Bros. underrated masterpiece "Killer Klowns From Outer Space" could instill a sense of mysterious dread and thrills to an inveterate horror fan like myself. The Klowns definitely break down the redundant slasher film villian barriers that ran rampant during the 80's and give a frighteningly original, yet humorous flair to their evil work that parallels the old alien invasion films of the 50's (right down to the backwoods farmer and his dog and to the overly-skeptical village police). These extraterrestial jokesters are by no means makers of fun merriment, but rather ravenous predators who hoodwink their victims with circus magic and sinister smiles.

The first time I viewed this acclaimed cult classic, John Mussari's ominous circus synth soundtrack, grizzled Officer Mooney (John Vernon) turned into a klown merrionette, and the corrosive cream pie death of the security guard each made a frightful impact on me! Not only that, I developed a short-lived repulsion to cotton candy after seeing the homicidal Klowns in action! Now, that I'm older, wiser, and even more desensitized, I've begun to see "Killer Klowns From Outer Space" as 70% comedy/30% horror since this film does boast some of the most baffoonish dialogue and action I've seen in a B-movie. Mike (Grant Cramer), Officer Mooney, and the hilariously inept Terrenzi Bros. (Peter Licassi & Mike Siegel) give just the right amount of comedic chemistry needed against the story's spooky premise. The Klowns themselves do offer a couple of cheesy chuckles via the duplicitous "child's play" antics they use to capture and expunge the town populace for their own vampiric food supply. And one just cannot get over the elaborately designed circus tent sets, props, and klown costumes! The theme song video feature by The Dickies is also pretty darn cool. All in all, this indelible pic proves that 1988 was a gem year for the horror genre.

I have been fortunate enough to obtain a previously-viewed copy of KKFOS this year after a near-exhaustive search on the Web! I found it through Amazon's zShop site, which may still have some English-version copies left (knowing that this film has become a rare find both in retail and rental). I wish Media Home Entertainment/HVG Video would get off their languid behinds and re-release the Klowns on VHS widescreen or DVD seeing that the Killer Klowns cult is bigger than they probably realize.

Believe it or not, a Klown sequel is in the planning stages according to the Chiodo Bros' official website (as well as a coveted email I received last year from Stephen himself) keep on watching the skies for more intergalatic Big Top mayhem and laughs!

5-0 out of 5 stars So Bad It's Good!
If you like your movies with extra cheese then this is just the movie for you. It's probably one of the worst and corniest I've ever seen but that's what makes it so entertaining. Perfect for a rainy Saturday afternoon or if you are in the mood for a light movie with goofy humor. Definiately not Oscar material but then again it was never meant to be.

5-0 out of 5 stars A deserved cult classic
Here's a film that really delivers on the title. They say Killer Klowns from Outer Space, and boy do they deliver the killer clowns. Satanic clown cars, deadly shadow puppets, killer balloon animals ... these filmmakers put some real thought into what it means to be a killer clown from outer space.

This is one of those movies I can watch over and over again.

5-0 out of 5 stars Balloon dogs are vicious!!!!
Awww, man, the only thing that sucks about this movie is that is failed to attract my attention back in the late 80's! I wish I had seen it back then, because by now it would not only be a great fun movie, but also have that additional nostalgic factor to it. But regardless, there's still enough 80's atmosphere and cheese to daze my brain. That and the movie is actually pretty good. I'm a huge fan of movies that take place in one day/night. This movie takes place all in one night, is all shot during the night hours, so there's none of that pesky mood-killing daylight to worry about. I may have missed this back in the 80's, but at least they have it on DVD now, and it looks great. I just finished watching it the second time. Also, the commentary by the Chiodo brothers is entertaining and funny. What a miracle it was that the executives okay'ed this movie! Too bad movie producers don't seem to have the guts these days to take shots on such wild ideas. I keep hearing the brothers are going to make a sequel (that would rock!), but the rumor has been spinning for years now. C'mon, we want more Killer Klowns! Come back, Klowns, come back - earth needs you! :) ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Is there anything that Anthony Michael Hall *can't* do?!
I am speechless! Wait no I'm not! I love this movie! It is hysterical! I loved everything about it! AMH is brilliant! You have to love the story and the man can actually sing. If you love some of the songs in the film like "What U Feel" (the song you hear over and over again in the film) and "Crazy World" then look around to find AMH's album, (Oh yes, he has an album out) It's called Hall of Mirrors: Welcome to the Hall of Mirrors, and it features those tracks as well as others that just rock! I love the little things in this film! Like the jail scene! When Julius is in the jail cell with Judd Nelson and the two others, take a look behind them to see what is written on the wall. It says " A.M.H. + BUBBA " I almost fell off my seat when I saw that! It's just the little things tossed into each scene that makes this film a classic for me! Watch the little smirks AMH tosses around, or those blues bug out every once in a while. Robert Downey Jr. gives a very funny performance. You have to love seeing Downey Jr. and AMH back together again. They had such great chemistry in Johnny Be Good, it's great to see them together. They work so well off of each other, ever watch the two on SNL in the 80's?! Okay, I am done rambling! Buy this film! Find AMH's album, kick it to track one, "What U Feel", crank it to maximum volume and shake the neighborhood! If you are looking for a ridiculous film to watch, a movie to just make you laugh..this is the movie for you! From: bethy_the_amh_fan

4-0 out of 5 stars Hail Caesar.... Hail Anthony Michael Hall!!!!!!!
Okay, so this isn't 16 Candles or the Breakfast Club... BUT it is still very entertaining for your die hard AMH fan.... I thought it had an interesting story and some good and tame humor... ****NUTS... sure.... Plus believe it or not, I really thought he did a good job at singing and his catchy little tunes... OH ,YO, OH , YO... WEE YO, WEE YO.... etc... I was humming the songs for hours afterwards... Let's face it, if you dig AMH, then you will enjoy this and SHAFT is in this, too!!!! It is worth a look-see!!!! He has a shot a singing regurlarly...

4-0 out of 5 stars Mindless Comedy- Nothing More
This is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. Very intelligent humor. Some silliness. It is not the kind of movie that stands up to serious scrutiny and over analyzation. It is a mindless comedy that has a "cute" story burried underneath. Anthony Michael Hall is a great comedic actor and this is a great adult role for him. The cameos by Judd Nelson, Robert Downey jr., and Samuel L. Jackson are very funny. This movie is definitely worth watching twice.

A similarly funny movie is Overnight Delivery.

3-0 out of 5 stars some very funny scenes although not a very good plot.
Anthony Michael Hall's acting seemed a bit on the choppy side, yet made the movie more hilarious. I couldn't tell if the acting was intentional or not so I can't say that it was bad, because, in a way, I thought was very funny. I couldn't have thought of a story like it if I tried, so it's very unique. I watched it several times and laughed through a lot of it. I'd like to see it again. I'd definitely recommend at least a one time viewing for anyone who hasn't seen it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Movie over Jurassic Park
This one of the best dinosaur movies I have ever seen. Not even Jurrasic Park III was this good. A scientist has genetically created velico raptors and 1 tranasaruas rex which you only she for about 15 percent of the film.

This is what happens there is a malfuction on of the laser cords malfuctions. One of the raptor escape gets lose and kills some people. The police man and his girl friend check out the murder.

They trace it to Uniscore were there they are later captured and prision buy Hades a scum bag. He even killed on of his employes because he thought her had lost his vision and forgotten his vision. Hades himself eventually dies is devour at the end by the T-rex after it escape from is storage area.

To make it better like python 1 and 2 and Predator 2 the goverment are inevolved. Hades program at one point has been sponsored by the goverment but after one of the raptors escaped and killed some people abadon the project.

But Hades contiunes to do his research buy getting foreign funding from Iraq. The goverment figures out that he reactivated project and send armed marines on a seek and destroy mission.

Shortly after entering the building the secretary under the sherrif order shuts of the power. By the time the power is turn back on the raptors and the t-rex are loose.

There are two fun parts in the move that rip of Aliens. One when a lady in the chopter turn around there is a rapter in the helicopter it kill her then like in aliens the helicopter hits the ground and blows up instantly.

The other rip of Aliens is at the end when the police officer fight the T-rex

4-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the Jurrasic Parks,but its fun
A good movie,but has very poor effects.The dinosaurs look so fake.The Jarrasic Park serries had great effects.Other than that its a very good movie.Good acting and a good plot.One of the most goriest movies ive ever seen.A group of scientest create a lot of raptors and one t-rex.1 of the raptors escapes and kills five locals and two policemen.The shierf and his girlfriend investigates the killings and go check out the building were the dinosaurs were created.The head scientest(Dr.Hyde)is actually rooting for the raptors,and lock them in a room were the raptors will come and eat them.Like in Python 1 and 2 the government are involved and they send about 10 soldiers there to kill the raptors.Before the shierf went to Dr.Hydes labs and got locked up,he told the electric company to turn off the power at exactly 3:00 PM.So when the power goes out the door comes open were they were trapped and the lazers that were keeping the raptors from escaping go off.Now the dinosaurs are free in the building and are killing the soldiers and scientest.One of the raptors gets in the helicopter and kills the women driving it and it blowsup. They send another helicopter and the surviving soldiers and scientest escape.The t-rex eats Dr.Hyde in the end and the sheirf kills the T-rex.The soldiers blow up the building and the raptors die.A good movie to rent and even buy if you like.Thanks for reading!

2-0 out of 5 stars SPLICE AND DICE
RAPTOR is a collection of scenes spliced from the three previous CARNOSAUR movies, and that in itself loses the movie at least two stars!!!
THE STORY: Banal and derivative, incoherent, and since it uses so much footage from the above mentioned movies, how can one judge this script on its own?
THE DIRECTION: Tepid and unimaginative.
THE CAST: Tim Abell was the only one I enjoyed in this movie; his supermacho Delta Force leader was the only life like performance. Teresa DePriest can't act; Corbin Bernsen overacts; and Eric Roberts and Melissa Brasselle are zombielike.
OTHER ASPECTS: The music by James Horner (why would this future oscar winner even do this?) It's banal at best. The special effects are mediocre, and the movie's climax rips off the third Carnosaur movie so blatantly, it's abysmal.
Shame on Roger Corman for stooping so low.
The two stars are mainly for Tim Abell!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars See Three Terrible Movies In One Even More Painful Experienc
I have to admit that "carnisaur" has been a guilty pleasure for me and friends. Although rediculously bad I didnt think it could get any worse...until now. Thanks to "raptors" I now no longer feel a reason to live. This movie was brutal in every aspect of film. I do enjoy B-movies every now and then, but when I rent one, I dont expect to see three other movies spliced together like a chinese fire drill. Every rule is broken in this movie: Bobcats tractors teleport from factories to deserts and transform into gigantic forklifts, a total lack of RAPTORS in the movie, the murders of random characters from other movies because it is sliced to horribly, and it becomes pitch black after 3:00 in a matter of minutes. I guess what I am trying to elude to is that I feel horriblly betrayed and cheated: the director's comentary even goes great lengths to avoid commenting on the issue of the blatantly obvious splicing and errors. Unfortunately, if you are looking for a good B-movie laugh...I recommend the originals first...then only then you will understand the true monstosity that is "raptor"

1-0 out of 5 stars How the heck did they bag JAMES HORNER for this?
CARNOSAUR was a true landmark in my 17 years of watching movies, in that it was the first one that I could not finish in one sitting (I had to take 2 breaks). The crummy special effects and gratuitous gore are not the problem (movies like BAD TASTE prove it can be done and be good). The problem was its utter rediculouslness, its tendancy to introduce characters for the sole purpose of killing them in death scenes that are far more revealing and even longer than the ones that introduced them. It was way to dark and gloomy to be considered campy fun. In a word, it bit.

But now here is RAPTOR, a Roger Corman movie that feels some need to re-make CARNOSAUR, this time sans human-incubation plot, with half of the film being stock footage of the 1993 abomination and the other half being brand new, 2001 abomination.

The surprise in this movie is that James Horner is on the credits. What a fun little excercise this must have been for him. (But no, the music isn't anything remarkable) ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Not even worth a rental
Due to my high threshhold for pain (or love for all things low brow), I am able to endure, if not, enjoy many movies that most people would use as a coaster or as a table leg extension. However, I think I just found a movie that I would use as a frisbee. Treasure Hunt has to be one of the dumbest things I've ever watched. Let's be honest, when you watch a sexy 'B'-flick, you expect certain things: cheesy humor, cheesy acting, cheesy sets, and skin. I'm still waiting for any of these elements to show up in this movie. I couldn't call this movie a B-flick because that would be insulting the B-flick genre. That's how bad this movie is. Listen to the other reviewers, don't bother with this turkey.

1-0 out of 5 stars not even worthy of skin flick status
When i saw this movie at hollywood video it looked like it would be a great movie... boy was i wrong. That was the biggest waste of money. I never thought Jim Wynorski could produce such, i dont even know what to call it, but it certainly wasn't worth my time or any other viewers time. If you looking for something good along the T and A lines check out the Bare Wench Project Trilogy, the second one is the best, but certainly turn away when you see Treasure Hunt at the store.

3-0 out of 5 stars Full Version will be released to PPV end of year!!!
FYI - The DVD does have all the GOOD stuff taken out and it does make all the difference in the movie. However, the full version with all scenes is supposed to be released to Pay-Per-View sometime around the end of the year (from what I hear) ;). Since I have seen the full version I can tell you it would be worth it to give the DVD to your mom and watch the PPV when it comes out yourself. That version will restore your faith in the genre. :-)

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy this Censored DVD
The people who put this on DVD have chosen to put out this heavily censored version with virtually all the good nude/sex scenes removed... why? Absolutely no clue... when softcore studios do this it is absouletly unexplainable. What fools..!

Don't waste your money, it's completely worhtless in every way. ... Read more
