Next year will mark the thirty-fifth anniversary of the release of Stephen, Charles, and Edward Chiodo’s horror comedy classic Killer Klowns from Outer Space (watch it HERE) – but Waxwork Records isn’t waiting to get the celebration started. They have just released the film’s complete score by John Massari on vinyl, and copies can be ordered at THIS LINK for the price of $40!
Killer Klowns from Outer Space has the following synopsis:
When teenagers Mike and Debbie see a comet crash outside their sleepy small town, they investigate and discover a pack of murderous aliens who look very much like circus clowns. They try to warn the local authorities, but everyone assumes their story is a prank. Meanwhile, the clowns set about harvesting and eating as many people as they can. It’s not until they kidnap Debbie that Mike decides it’s up to him to stop the clowns’ bloody rampage.
Grant Cramer, Suzanne Snyder, John Allen Nelson, Royal Dano, John Vernon, Michael S. Siegel, Peter Licassi, and Christopher Titus star.

The original score to Killer Klowns from Outer Space is kicked off by the classic 80’s horror movie theme track, Killer Klowns (From Outer Space) by California punk band, The Dickies. The ‘nightmare merry-go-round’ continues with a smattering of menacing electronic brass sections, electric guitar, bombastic drum machine beats, & harpsichord combined with sci-fi synth elements to capture the ultra-specific origins of the antagonists. Massari’s score to Klowns is a retro-synth joyride from start to finish featuring immediately recognizable cues from the beloved 80’s cult-classic!
The Killer Klowns from Outer Space score is really cool, so I’m sure it’s going to be a blast to listen to on vinyl. Will you be picking up a copy of this release? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
