'Killer Klowns From Outer Space' Bound for Blu-ray

Posted Tue Jul 24, 2012 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The 1980s guilty pleasure will invade high-definition this September.

In an early announcement to retailers, MGM will be sending in the 'Killer Klowns From Outer Space' to Blu-ray on September 11.

Finally the truth about clowns is out! Beneath their smirky sinister grins and wildly patterned clothes are clever killers from out of this world. The "juxtaposition of their toy-store arsenal and malevolent intent proves to be a tasty combination" (Los Angeles Times) in this killer entertainment that will leave you fearing these big-top creatures for good. A spaceship - looking like a circus tent - lands in a field near a small town, signaling the attack of deviant, red-nosed, balloon-twisting psychos from another world who plan to annihilate mankind - by turning people into cotton candy! Luckily, the town's teen citizenry decides to fight back and teach the cosmic bozos a lesson. But these klowns are no klutzes, turning popcorn, peanuts and caramel corn into playful - but deadly - weapons of madcap destruction and mayhem!

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include: Audio Commentary with the Chiodo Brothers, The Making of Killer Klowns, Komposing Klowns, Visual Effects with Gene Warren Jr., Kreating Klowns, Chiodo Brothers' Earliest Films, Two Deleted Scenes with Director's Commentary, Bloopers, and Original Theatrical Trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $16.99.
