This is one of the most horrible pieces of crap I've ever seen
15 June 2007 | by (United Kingdom BRADFORD) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most horrible pieces of crap I've ever seen....and that's saying' something! When I saw this movie on the shelf I thought "A killer clown movie? It's got to be at least so-bad-its-good." Oh, my drogues, how wrong I was. There are a lot of different flavors of bad, and Killjoy is a veritable cornucopia of them.

I guess this is supposed to one of them there "urban hip hop" horror flicks, featuring an all African American cast. Well, I'm a black guy and if I'm the target audience I feel a large amount of dread. This movie sucks so badly the NAACP should protest it and the black College Fund should start refusing to aid anyone needing money for Film School. It's that bad, my friends.

The flick starts with a geek student guy named Michael who has the hots for Jada. The problem is Jada has a boyfriend named Lorenzo who's a BIG FISH. We meet all of these knuckleheads virtually at the same time when the movie starts. Michael goes over to Jada on a street corner even though Jada and her friend Monique warn him that Lorenzo will whoop his ass if he's caught talking to her. Just then Lorenzo and his two thug buddies roll up in a car and proceed to kick the living snot of Michael. Amazingly after being stomped into the dirt, Michael doesn't even sport a bruise. I guess it was an implied beating, the same way Lorenzo is an implied gang banger. Yeah, he's a mean street punk, but if those other two guys are his gang, well, I think you'd need at least five guys to be called a gang.

Michael's supposed to be a sympathetic character...friendless, picked on, lonely. But you won't feel for him, I promise you. First of all he's nuts. He goes home after his latest ass kicking and engages in the lamest black magic ritual I've ever seen on film. Surrounded by some candles much like the ones you'd find in the nearest Dollar Tree Store Michael tries to invoke Killjoy....a CLOWN DOLL(!) to get revenge for him. Secondly he's really really dumb. One of Lorenzo's thugs calls to him from outside telling him "I want to be your friend...come outside!" and he does, and then Lorenzo and his other friend grab him and throw him in their car. Keep in mind Michael fell for the whole I want to be your friend thing from a guy who a mere few hours ago broke his foot off in his ass. Is it any wonder that someone this dense doesn't have any friends? Lorenzo and his flunkies drive Michael out to a deserted stretch of road and threaten him with a pistol. Lorenzo meant to scare him, claiming the gun is unloaded but Lorenzo isn't too bright either...its loaded and goes off, killing Michael. Still, Lorenzo doesn't feel too bad about it. He just leaves with his friends, barely giving a second thought about the fact that they just killed a guy in cold blood for talking to Jada.

***The Final Judgment*** This is a warning. Do not rent this movie. Its incredibly bad. Its sickness is so powerful that I fear it may absorb the universe like a giant black hole of crapness. You will be hard pressed to find a movie as completely worthless as this one.
