‘The Killjoy Collection’ Review

Stars: Angel Vargas, Trent Haaga | Written by Carl Washington, Douglas Snauffer, Tammi Sutton, John Lechago | Directed by Craig Ross, Tammi Sutton, John Lechago

In the late 90s/early 2000′s there was a distinct new trend in the horror genre: that of “urban horror”. A genre that brought urban black cinema, and all-black casts, together with the horror genre in much the same way as it did in the 70s during the blaxploitation era. Whilst films like Bones and Vampire in Brooklyn (despite being something of a critical failure) had iconic stars such as Snoop Dogg and Eddie Murphy respectively, it was smaller movies such as Rusty Cundieff’s Tales From the Hood that had all the ideas (if you haven’t seen Tales… you should really track it down).

Put On Your Clown Shoes, Kiddies — Killjoy 3 is On the Way!

Although I am, at times, overly critical of the horror genre, one of my favorite “scary” movies is Craig Ross Jr.’s 2000 impossibly enjoyable slasher “Killjoy”. Simply put, it’s the “Ice Cream Man” of killer clown movies. It’s one of those films that you’re afraid to admit that you like around people who has discerning taste in cinema, particularly those who think they’re above watching a cheesy horror flick. And while it might sound arrogant to say as much, you have to see the damned thing for yourself to really understand what I’m rambling about. However, if you’re curious to see what all the fuss is about, check out the trailer for the Charles Band-produced “Killjoy 3″, which looks to be the snazziest installment in the franchise thus far. Full Moo will release the sequel on digital video discs across the United States on December 14th.
