Ep. 79 — KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE (1988) with Fred Sims
This week, we're officially kicking off our Psychotronic Summer series to celebrate some of the best summer cult films that are celebrating big anniversaries in 2018!
To get things going, we're headed back to 1988 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE and we're bringing special guest Fred Sims along for the ride!
From its origins as a weird thought experiment from director Stephen Chiodo to the creation of its amazing and iconic effects and characters from all three of the Chiodo brothers, we dive deep into the stories behind the making of the film and discuss its ongoing legacy as a cult film three decades after its release.
And then we ask the big question: Is it a Psychotronic Hall of Famer? That's up to you!
Come back next week as we continue out Psychotronic Summer series with one of the most successful genre films of all time!
We'd love to hear your thoughts! Contact us at any of the social media accounts listed below, or be a part of the show by calling us at (864) 371-9931 and leaving us a voicemail of 3 minutes or less and we'll use it on our next episode!
