|A hillarious threesome.|
This cult classic horror spoof has it all: a plot that is simple enough to follow and entertaining at the same time, likeable characters and nefarious villains. It's one of these movies that enthrall the viewer with all sorts of otherworldly fantasies which make it hard to be brought back down to earth after the viewing.
The plot consists of an army of sadistic alien life forms, who look remarkably like our concept of a clown. The grisly-looking bunch land in the sleepy American town of Crescent Cove. When their spaceship lands, which is in the form of a circus tent. Mike Tobacco and Debbie Stone , out for a romantic evening, spot the newcomers and decide to investigate. They soon encounter the Klowns and barely escape capture, having been shot at by a "popcorn gun." At first, it seems the popcorn functions simply to track the fleeing teens, but another purpose is revealed later in the movie. Mike and Debbie rush into town to warn others of the impending danger.

Meanwhile, the Klowns make their way into Crescent Cove. They harvest the unsuspecting population, blasting random victims with a ray gun that coccoons them with cotton candy, with lethal results. The Klowns use a variety of seemingly innocent methods to ensnare their victims; killer shadow puppets, bloodhound-like balloon animals and a ray gun that looks like a children's toy are all used. Since the methods themselves appear whimsical, the townspeople don't know they are in danger until it's too late.

Debbie is eventually freed, and a hole is crashed into Big Top by the Terenzi Brothers' ice cream truck. Rich and Paul Terenzi, using their PA system, pretend to be the Klowns' leader (there's a giant clown's head with a sugar cone-hat on top of the truck). They tell the Klowns to let Mike, Debbie, and Officer Hanson go. But then a giant "Master Klown," roughly 30 feet tall, descends from the ceiling: Klownzilla, the "King Klown," presumably the leader of the aliens. The Master Klown violently throws the Terenzi Brothers' ice cream truck across the ship (with the Terenzi Brothers in it), resulting in a fiery explosion. Officer Hanson creates a diversion so Mike and Debbie can escape. He defeats the Master Klown by popping its big red nose (the Klowns' only weakness) with his badge. Master Klown blows up, and so does Big Top in mid-liftoff, but Officer Hanson and the Terenzi brothers all survive (Rich and Paul took cover in the freezer, with the ice cream, when their truck exploded; during the Big Top explosion, they and Dave all hid in a Klown Kar, which literally falls out of the sky). The movie ends with a bunch of cream pies being dumped on the heroes.
