Killer Klowns from Outer Space

Hey, Hey, Hey alright so I told you in the Blog Description that this blog is mostly going to be reviews for Bizarro Fiction but I also said I would at times talk about a horror movie or just show some weird lyrics. So this is my first Random talk about a horror movie and I got to tell you this is a great one haha. First off just look at the title of this movie "Killer Klowns from Outer Space" that has to be one of the most original titles out there it just plain weird and basically tells you mostly what the movie is. This was a low-budget Comedy/Horror movie and what this movie is about is this couple Mike and Debbie is making out at this private spot that other couples make out too and then they see this meteor rush by them. So they decide to go look for it and see what it is and what they find is a circus tent. Then it just goes in that these aliens that look like Clowns and have Clown type weapons go through the town and attack the people by turning them into cotton candy and later eating them. So a couple of these teenagers decide to fight back and thats what the story is about. For a low-budget 80's movie I enjoy the special effects and I enjoyed this movie I thought at times it was funny and the clowns were a bit creepy looking and if you hate clowns now if you watch this movie you'll most likely cry non-stop. The theme song I really like and basically got hooked on to it its the title song "Killer Klowns from Outer Space" and its by this punk band called The Dickies and again I really just love this song I think its cause since it sounds like such a circus theme I for some odd reason really enjoy songs that sound like the circus. All in all you should try picking this movie up and watch it it's a great cult movie I think and will want to show some of my friends that too.


Alright I thought I should make The Bizarro Starter Kit my first post review. I got to tell you that this is an amazing book to start out with if you want to try to give some weird fiction a shot. Its a collection of Short Novels and Short Stories by Ten authors who started the Bizarro Fiction. The Authors are D. Harlan Wilson, Carlton Mellick III, Jeremy Robert Johnson, Kevin L Donihe, Gina Ranalli, Andre Duza, VIncent W. Sakowski, Steve Beard, John Edward Lawson, and Bruce Taylor. Some of them can make you laugh, some can make you happy, and some can just make you go "What the hell????." My personal Favorites are Extinction Journals by Jeremy Robert Johnson, Short Stories by D. Harlan Wilson, and The Greatest F***ing Moment in Sports by Kevin L Donihe. All in all this is an awesome book and its at a cheap price another positive note about this book. So if you want to see what the Bizarro Genre is and wonder if you can get interested in it then pick this book up.

Definition of Bizarro

My first post will be explaing what Bizarro is I got this from the Bizarro Starter Kit but if want more information about Bizarro just look at this site.

1. Bizarro, simply put, is the genre of the weird.
2. Bizarro is literature's equivalent to the cult section at the video store.
3. Like cult movies, Bizarro is sometimes surreal, sometimes goofy, sometimes bloody, and sometimes borderline pornographic.
4. Bizarro often contains a certain cartoon logic that, when applied to the real world, creates an unstable universe where the bizarre becomes the norm and absurdities are made flesh.
5. Bizarro strives not only to be strange, but fascinating, thought-provoking, and, above all, fun to read.
6. Bizarro was created by a group of small press publishers in response to the increasing demand for (good) weird fiction and the increasing number of authors who specialize in it.
7. Fictitious Examples of Bizarro: Franz Kafka meets Joe Bob Briggs
Dr. Seuss of the post-apocalypse
Japanese animation directed by David Lynch
Alice in Wonderland for adults
