October Horror Movie Challenge: Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1988)

Oh, what to say about this movie. I figured it was timely with all the clown "attacks" being reported.
Of course, I saw this when it came out, but wanted to watch it again with Connor.  He honestly didn't know what to think. But we were both laughing a lot.

Things I noticed/remembered.

Royal Dano as the farmer.  That was either inspired casting or lazy casting.
Suzanne Snyder as Debbie. She also played a "Debbie" in "Weird Science" and was from nearby Park Ridge Illinois.
Christopher Titus is in this movie too.  Wearing glasses I didn't even recognize them.

Though I swear there was a scene where the Dickies were playing in a concert.

A lot of the lines are really on the nose, no pun intended. It's not a great script. The movie is still a silly one.  The Klowns are scary though, but all clowns are scary.

One of my absolute favorites, and one that's just begging to be gamed!

Considering that a Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai RPG exists, and there were plans for years for a game based on The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai, I'm surprised there hasn't been an official Killer Klowns game. Even a board or card game would be pretty cool, since there are now a few Mars Attacks! games in stores.
