It starts off like more than a few extra-terrestrial horror films usually do. Something lands in an area just outside of town in the woods. A local man(Royal Dano) and his dog follow it to the source where they are met with a gigantic and ill placed Circus tent. As it becomes clear that IT is a circus tent and the invaders happen to be an invading force of clowns.Yep,that;s right.Clowns.
This film is still a treat after all these years to revisit because it has a nice balance of horror and absurdity which gives all of its visuals such as Balloon Animal Bloodhounds,popcorn creatures and shadow puppet dinosaurs. a certain joy to see executed. Most movies don't do a good job of juggling a lot of what I like to call acceptable cheese & outright abandon, but this film manages to keep the Klowns in check with the cast. This is a definite much watch for any fans of the golden age of horror.
