Step right up.

This is a perfect combination of horror/sci-fi/comedy. When two young people see a meteor land in the woods they investigate and find a circus tent, but it is no circus tent. Instead it is an alien spaceship with evil killer clowns who keep people in cotton candy cocoons in order to eat them later.

John Vernon stars as Officer Mooney, a cynical and hateful cop who refuses to believe in anything he cannot understand. He fits the role perfectly. The aliens use toy guns to kill humans, balloon dogs to track people down and all of the other things you'd usually see in a circus.

Director Stephen Chiodo co-wrote with his brother Charles Chiodo an they have made a timeless classic. The rest of the cast in this bizarre thriller includes Grant Cramer, Royal Dano, Suzanne Snyder and John Allen Nelson. If you haven't seen this film yet, you really need to. There is still nothing quite like it.

You will also enjoy the theme song entitled "Killer Klowns From Outer Space" by the Dickies. It is a very unique song and if you find the video on YouTube you'll be entertained.
