"...This offbeat, black-comic homage to '50s monster movies demonstrates both above-average technical skill and large dollops of imagination..."

3 stars out of 5 -- "Stephen Chiodo's kult kamper may be just for laughs, but it holds up surprisingly well after 20 years."
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...
