“Chiodo delivers a tightly paced movie with sufficient hints of fashion to fulfill visible hounds (like me). However the directing undoubtedly takes a again seat to the units, the Klowns and the results. They’re the celebrities of this present.” Arrow within the Head
“Killer Klowns from Outer Area has achieved cult standing over the world and rightly so. It’s actually fulfilling to look at, extremely imaginative, fairly humorous at occasions and showcases among the finest clown make-up you’re ever going to see. It’s a completely distinctive movie which is precisely what B-movies needs to be all about.” Each day Lifeless
“The Chiodos persistently hold the humor stage excessive, even because the physique rely rises. Don’t anticipate grasp thespian stage appearing right here. This a B-movie, by way of and thru, and I believe good appearing would have really ruined it. That is the kind of movie that wants hammy theatrics and an over-the-top supply to essentially promote the idea.” Digitally Obsessed
“Cliché-ridden and hysterical absurd, the movie comes with a really darkish, twisted humorousness that’s bizarrely lighthearted and animated.” Excessive-Def Digest
“This surreal chaos is very similar to the trippy psychedelic horrors spotlighted within the Nightmare on Elm Avenue sequence and youngsters are significantly vulnerable to it. Here’s a place the place grownup guidelines don’t apply and, actually, adherence to them will get you killed. I believe there are even some older people on the market who might snicker together with the movies outrageousness however secretly get a chill specifically scenes.” Kindertrauma
“The clown designs are extraordinarily efficient, starting from a child dwarf clown to snapping, fanged clown heads hooked up to snakes; likewise, the ingenious use of typical clown props like cream pies to lethal ends lifts this movie nicely above your common B-movie quickie. Then after all there’s the traditional biker scene, a present stopper in its personal proper, and a playful rating highlighted by The Dickies’ insanely catchy theme music…” Mondo Digital
“The design of the devices has a witty garishness and there are some natty trick results – the scene the place bigoted sheriff John Vernon is became a ventriloquist’s doll being one significantly ghoulish impact […] The concept fails as parody as a result of all of the movie turns into is a formulaic run by way of of style clichés with a novelty insert.” Moria
“It’s a one-gag film, however whereas among the iterations of that gag are about as hilarious as a squirt within the face from a plastic flower, just a few are genuinely rib-tickling: a clown makes a balloon-animal canine… then lets it free to search out a pair of escaping teenagers; later, a hapless sufferer is became a hissing pile of melted flesh and bone by a barrage of corrosive custard pies.” SFX Journal
“Having a movie filled with evil clowns is a good suggestion, however not sufficient occurs right here to justify a complete eighty-five minutes value of mayhem. Maybe they need to have toned down the drained eighties horror comedy and gone for straight horror (see unfunny the comedian aid brothers). Nonetheless, it does have a sure, um, integrity in its weird logic.” The Spinning Picture
” …it does include a usually impressed premise and, most significantly, a pop-educated information of Nineteen Fifties B-flicks and creature-on-the-loose options. Because of a artistic script from the Chiodo brothers, Killer Klowns absolutely makes use of each angle of its kooky, under-the-big-top storyline. So kudos to them.” The Terror Entice
“Killer Klowns is to the 80s what The Rocky Horror Image Present (1975) was to the 70s. The ‘cheesy’ results and the OTT appearing model is purposeful and all part of the parody. Within the midst of the enjoyable, nonetheless, there is sufficient to hold these seeking some real scares glad. The straightforward proven fact that the clowns by no means converse is eerily chilling.” UK Horror Scene
“Contemplating the low finances for the film, the artwork route and manufacturing design are pretty imaginative. If solely the appearing had been a bit extra top-notch. Anyway, with veteran character actors like Royal Dano and John Vernon, the opposite so-so actors had been buffered slightly.” Zombos’ Closet of Horror
