FEARNET Killer Snack Attack: 'Killer Klown’s' Lethal Pies, Cotton Candy Cocoon

Killer Klowns from Outer Space


PT Barnum said it so long ago
There's one born every minute, don't you know
Some make us laugh, some make us cry
These clowns only gonna make you die

I knew the Dickies’ Killer Klowns from Outer Space themesong before I had ever seen Stephen Chiodo’s movie.  The lyrics pretty much sum it up. They are adorably evil clowns from outer space hell bent on destroying the human race with the help of their killer cotton candy cocoons.

Movie: Killer Klowns from Outer Space
Year: 1988
Deadly Recipe: Ray guns that spew a cotton-candy substance that forms a cocoon around their human victims. After the captives have stewed a bit, they slurp them up through a straw. The Klowns also employ acid pies, fake pizza, and flesh-eating popcorn.
Chef: Destruction-loving alien klowns include Fatso, Spikey, Bibbo, Rudy, Chubby, Jumbo, Shorty, and Slim.
Culinary Kill: There are so many ways these Klowns can knock you dead, but I particularly enjoy the fake pizza delivery scene and the flesh-eating pie fight.
Leftovers: If you're amused a movie about human-munching alien clown puppets - and who isn't? - this is for you.  It employs the silliest of jokes and despite their love of man juice (ew, I can’t believe I just typed that), the killers are super-lovable.
