This week at Trailers from Hell, horror director Mick Garris introduces the Chiodo Brothers' 1988 sci-fi parody "Killer Klowns from Outer Space."

Kreepy klown space aliens invade Earth and obliterate victims with kotton kandy ray guns and acid-drenched cream pies.  John Vernon and Royal Dano are the only recognizable cast members. This wacko sci-fi parody and cult favorite is only movie to date written and directed by the talented Bronx-born Chiodo Brothers (Stephen, Charles and Edward).
