Entertainment Reviews:

Los Angeles Times - 06/04/1988
"...This offbeat, black-comic homage to '50s monster movies demonstrates both above-average technical skill and large dollops of imagination..."
Entertainment Weekly - 08/24/2001
"...It's goofy, cultish stuff, the ultimate in clown camp..."
Total Film - 11/01/2008
3 stars out of 5 -- "Stephen Chiodo's kult kamper may be just for laughs, but it holds up surprisingly well after 20 years."

Description by OLDIES.com:

Finally the truth about clowns is out! Beneath their smirky sinister grins and wildly patterned clothes are clever killer from out of this world.

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!

A kampy, kult favorite! After a meteor plunges to Earth, young lovers Mike and Debbie discover a circus tent-spacecraft piloted by grinning, red-nosed aliens. The klown passengers are not happy makers of merriment however, but instead demented homicidal aliens with rather unique ways of killing their victims (acid pie, anyone'), who methodically preserve tasty human treats in cotton candy cocoons. Naturally, the kruel killer klowns kreate khaos for the kops, until someone discovers the aliens' weakness--by a nose...
