Last week I was having a case of the Mondays, and bailed on my usual Movie Delight Monday. However, today I'm determined to have a good day, which means we're back on schedule.
Today's selection is one of the most unusual films I've covered, but one of the biggest as far as cult followings go:
The first time I saw this movie I was maybe seven or eight, and it scared the bejeezus out of me. I mean seriously, if these guys
don't scare a child, then I'd be concerned about their mental health.
Story goes like this: two young horny kids are getting their cuddle on one night when they see what first appears to be a comet. Closer inspection reveals a circus tent full of frightening clowns intent on taking everyone captive, turning them into human cotton candy balls, sticking straws in them and sucking their blood out.
They have quite a few tricks up their sleeves, like shadow puppet talents that can actually kill people and popcorn that turns into freakishly scary mini clown head things.
I won't give you details, but it all ends in massive amounts of ice cream toppings.
If all this post has done is make you thoroughly confused, check out the original trailer below.
