A section of horror movie fans have a special place in their hearts for the terrible-yet-entertaining ‘Killer Clowns from Outer Space’, and it’s hard to believe that the film is approaching it’s 30th birthday.
Get out your twisty straws for the blood and prepare for some cotton candy cocoons, as there is a special event to celebrate the milestone.
And it sounds pretty damn cool.
The special event taking place this coming May in Los Angeles, California is celebrating the film with a live orchestral score from the Hollywood Chamber Orchestra conducted by John Massari.
According to an official press release, here is what to expect from the event:
“For the 30th Anniversary, Massari has created a three-ring Sci-Fi/Horror celebration, reuniting an amazing line-up of special guests, including the film’s creators, the Chiodo Brothers, musical guests The Dickies, stars Grant Cramer and Suzanne Snyder.
At 6PM, the Kosmic Klown circus celebration will begin with stilt walkers, balloon folding artist Buster Balloon Cadwell, contortionist Bonnie Morgan, plus fortune tellers, strong men and women, magicians, body art, fan arts and crafts, and of course the Killer Klowns. There will be a pre-show Q&A at 7PM featuring Stephen Chiodo (writer/director), Charles Chiodo (writer/art director), Edward Chiodo (writer/producer), Grant Cramer (Mike Tobacco), Suzanne Snyder (Debbie Stone), members of The Dickies, and composer John Massari, moderated by Jim Branscome of Cinematic Void.
Following the Q&A, at 8PM, the film will be screened with it’s original musical score performed live by The Hollywood Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Massari. LA’s very own original punk rockers, The Dickies, will perform their enduring classic Killer Klowns From Outer Space theme song.
Varèse Sarabande Records will be releasing a new recording of the soundtrack on CD and LP, available for sale at the concert. The album features the original score performed by members of The Hollywood Chamber Orchestra, with new orchestrations by Massari and Bernhard Eder. The Dickies recorded a BRAND NEW version of the film’s theme song featuring an extra creepy intro followed by their signature pure punk energized sound.”
“For 30 years, love and loyalty from fans the world over made this extraordinary movie a beloved cult classic,” said Massari. “This event is our way to celebrate Killer Klowns From Outer Space directly with these fans.”
Believe it Or Not: A Fan Brewed a Special Friday the 13th Beer Using Water from the Real Camp Crystal Lake
Sometimes, fans do the most awesome things, such as Friday the 13th mega-fan Roger Krzeminski, who took his love of the Friday the 13th films to a whole new level.
According to Bloody Disgusting, Krzeminski took a lucky visit at the real life Camp Crystal Lake (known as Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco) as an opportunity to bring home a bit of Camp Crystal Lake.
“I asked at camp if I could take a few gallons of Crystal Lake water to make beer since I’m an avid homebrewer” Krzeminski said to Bloody Disgusting.
After getting the okay, Krzeminski took a few gallons of Lake water home, filtered and sanitized the water, and then made his own Camp Crystal Lake American Red Ale.
“A standard batch of beer is 5 gallons which gives you 54 beers. I use 7 gallons because there is a considerable amount of evaporation when you boil the wort (beer juice if you will) for 1 hour. I came out with 52 bottles as I did lose a little additional volume in the filter/sanitize process.”
“These are purely for personal consumption and gifts for friends/family. I’m not selling these or anything of that sort” Krzeminski said.
“If I am fortunate enough to be invited back to camp by the generous folks at Crystal Lake Tours (CLT), I would be thrilled to get the opportunity to make more. At the end of the day, this project of mine would have never left the ground if it weren’t for the generosity and goodwill of the people at CLT. If anything were to come of this, I’d truly love for the outcome to be more people directed to the website and buy souvenirs, tour tickets or merchandise to support the camp and to keep “Camp Crystal Lake” thriving so future fans and scouts can still see this place and enjoy the experiences as much as I really have.”

In ‘Howling Village’, which will release in Japan on February 7th, 2020, “The film centers on a village at the end of a forgotten tunnel from which no one has ever returned alive.
