Overview
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!

Easter Eggs
From the disc's main menu, go to the 'Special Features' section. Here, highlight the menu 'Play Movie' and then press the 'up' arrow key on your remote control. This will highlight one of the popcorn flakes on the screen. It gives you access to 'Klown Auditions,' a funny 3-minute video segment that shows how the Klowns worked on their walks before going in front of the camera.

Once done, select 'Play Movie' again in the 'Special Features' section and press the 'up' arrow key twice. This will highlight a different popcorn flake, which will give you access to an alternate version of a scene from the movie. In this alternate take, actor John Vernon is replacing his line 'Holy Shit' with 'Holy Smoke' for TV audiences.

There's also a different way to access these hidden features. Insert the disc and don't touch anything. After the main menu has been running for 4 minutes, a new 'Easter Eggs' menu screen will come up, which also gives you access to these two hidden features.
