Free Movies Alert: Watch 'Killer Klowns from Outer Space' Online

15 October 2010 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Free Movies Online

Aliens are scary. Clowns are scary. Aliens who look like clowns? Terrifying.

'Killer Klowns from Outer Space' -- a comedic horror film about, well, clowns from outer space, who kill -- was written and directed by the Chiodo Brothers, a visual effects team only slightly less well known than the Coen Brothers. It's always had one of the best titles in horror, and it's become a cult classic since its release in 1988. But have you actually seen the movie?

Now's your chance, as the movie's available in its entirety online. Freak yourself out in the privacy of your own home! You can watch it on SlashControl or right here, now, for free.

Note: Clown not included.

Exclusive interview: The Horror of the Chiodo Brothers!

8 October 2010 8:01 AM, PDT | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

Rabid horror fans (and lifelong fear of clown sufferers) need no introduction to the colorful Chiodo Brothers. The trio, consisting of graphics expert Stephen, chief designer Charles and executive producer (and youngest brother) Edward, grew up making homemade creature features together in Bronx, New York before helping Tim Burton establish his empire by working on the short, Vincent, in 1982. They received rare critical pundits for their seminal Killer Klowns From Outer Space collaboration in 1988 and confirmed their bid as twisted auteurs by designing the puppets for Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s Team America: World Police in 2004. With nonstop projects (including an upcoming 1950’s style monster movie in the works), the gregarious siblings recently took a moment to talk with Fangoria about past and future projects and their first Midwest appearance at Chicago’s 24 hour Music Box Massacre 6 on October 9. »

Adam Green and 3 Others Team Up for Horror Anthology Film Chillerama

2 September 2010 11:03 AM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

If you're a fan of horror anthology films like Creepshow and Tales from the Crypt, you'll probably be interested to hear that there is a new one in the works that is due to be released sometime next year. Genre movies composed of multiple short films used to happen a bit more frequently back in the '70s and '80s, but they have been all but dead lately... that is, until Michael Dougherty resurrected the idea with Trick 'r Treat. Now director Adam Green (Hatchet, Frozen) is teaming up with Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2), Adam Rifkin (Detroit Rock City) and Tim Sullivan (2001 Maniacs) for a project called Chillerama. Read on to find out what each movie is about. According to Bloody Disgusting [1], the backdrop for Chillerama is that the last drive-in theatre in America is closing and the owner is having one final night of movie mayhem. I »

Film4 FrightFest 2010: First Word - Badass New Anthology on the Way - Chillerama

29 August 2010 5:41 PM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

Quick little piece of breaking info from FrightFest. Adam Green and Joe Lynch have revealed that they're working on an anthology flick called Chillerama, which will hopefully be released next year.

Chillerama concerns the final night in existence of the very last drive-in theater in America in which the owner decides that before everything closes for good, he wants to show four of the most -- to quote Joe Lynch -- "fucked up" movies in existence.

Said movies come in the following forms:

"Wadzilla" by Adam Rifkin - A man goes for therapy to increase his sperm count with horrific results. This one will feature creature effects from Killer Klowns from Outer Space's Chiodo Brothers and apparently a scene in which a giant sperm monster attempts to impregnate the Statue of Liberty.

"I Was a Teenage Werebear" by Tim Sullivan - We all know what werewolves are, and if »

Cult Classics Swarm To Blu-Ray And DVD From 20th Century Fox And MGM – Win A Couple Here

23 August 2010 1:08 PM, PDT | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

In partnership with the latest edition of The Rough Guide To Cult Movies, which you should check out when you get a chance, because it’s a great work, 20th Century Fox and MGM recently kicked out a slew of cult classics on Blu-Ray.

Check out the full list of titles, because these are the sorts of titles you want to pick up, and many of them benefit greatly from the Blu-Ray upgrade. This is also a good list to double-check for things you aren’t familiar with, because if it’s coming up on the cult classic list, it’s probably there for a reason. Especially of note are titles like Kissing Jessica Stein, an underappreciated gem that everyone should give a second look.

Some are so bad they’re good, some are the icons of their genres, and others are just a whole lot of fun; the studio’s Cult Classics includes exploitative, »

Tax Day Freebies: No-Cost Horror Flicks To Scare Away The IRS Agents

15 April 2010 12:38 PM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

April 15. The worst day of the year if you live in the United States. Tax Day. Everyone likes to talk about "seeing your tax dollars at work." It all stems from today, when many of us mail off checks to Uncle Sam in exchange for the comfort of knowing that IRS debt collectors won't come a-knocking with their baseball bats and their dreams of breaking your kneecaps.

Okay... the IRS doesn't do that. Anymore. As far as we know. But they do want your money. Taxes are a fact of life. And sure, they keep all sorts public amenities running smoothly (mostly). Paying for them every April leaves many of us short on money however. That's where this blog comes in. I'm here with a few horror movie suggestions, movies that can be watched free of charge online, compliments of the always-wonderful Hulu. Note that most of these are for mature audiences, »

Right Now on Horror Squad

14 April 2010 5:15 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Like horror movies? Like Cinematical? Then you're in luck, because Cinematical happens to have its own horror movie blog called Horror Squad. But in case you're not reading Hs on a regular basis (for shame), here's what you've been missing on the genre front.

Micah has our first I Would Have Saved/Killed of the week and it's a very special selection: Killer Klowns From Outer Space. Luke Mullen runs down a list of this week's horror discs, the highlights being WB's new Nightmare on Elm Street Blu-ray. I talk a little bit about The Asylum's Mega Piranha (spoiler alert: piranha eat people) in the latest What We're Watching. Mike Braken commands a discussion on Phantasm that's well worth reading, particularly if you haven't been visited by the Tall Man for a while. I find it hilarious that Mansquito will soon have its own cinematic doppelganger in the form of Sucker. »

Monsterpalooza Details; Show-Runner Eliot Brodsky Speaks

22 March 2010 4:41 PM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

With the second annual and highly anticipated horror convention Monsterpalooza – The Art of Monsters returning Friday, April 9–11, 2010, to The Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel in Burbank, CA (get your tickets here now, and how could you not, when they’re only $20 a day?), Dread caught up with the con’s creator, Eliot Brodsky, to talk about the F/X and monster-heavy event.

“Monsterpalooza was a glimmer of an idea back in 2007,” Brodsky told us of the show’s conception. “I actually did a very sized-down version of the show on the East Coast in 2008. It was in conjunction with Monster-Mania as a display museum.”

While other horror conventions seem to primarily focus on the stars of the genre (and this year’s Monsterpalooza isn’t slacking in that department by any means, as Brodsky’s organized a Return of the Living Dead reunion panel with the principals from that classic), the »

Spring Preview: A Repertory Calendar

19 February 2010 5:10 PM, PST | | See recent IFC news »

Repertory theaters on the coasts are truly offering a window onto the world this spring, with Jia Zhangke and Bong Joon-ho retrospectives, as well as New French Cinema in New York, "Freebie and the Bean," "Killer Klowns from Outer Space" and Jason Reitman's favorite films invade Los Angeles, and the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin is offering a fond farewell to the video cassette. But consider this a hello to seeing classics, oddities and rarities on the big screen over the next few months.

Cities: [New York] [Los Angeles] [Austin] More Spring Preview: [Theatrical Calendar]

[Anywhere But a Movie Theater]

New York


Is there a more energetic way to start the spring than with a screening of Russ Meyer's "Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!" (Feb. 20, with editors Rumsey Taylor, Leo Goldsmith and Jenny Jediny in attendance)? Perhaps not, but it's only the start of an exciting spring season at the 92YTribeca Screening Room, which will present several special events over the next few months. »
