Someone kill that clown already
6 April 2006 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

My girlfriend picked out this movie. We were in the mood for a corny horror movie. And corny it was. In a bad way. First of all, the film quality looks like it was filmed in 1972. Killjoy is not scary. He is annoying as all hell! He just hops around and laughs like an idiot, hooting and hollering like a wounded dog. His kills are lame, and his one-liners are even worse. The acting, boy, don't even make me get into that. Pay a drifter $5 and they'll do a better acting job than these people. The blood is very fake, the special effects are just... goofy! Another 300 votes and this movie will end up on the Bottom 100 list where it belongs.
