I’m often asked to name my all-time favorite horror movie scores, and one of the first ones that always comes to mind is Killer Klowns from Outer Space. Composed by John Massari, the colorful ’80s synth score is as iconic as the film itself, and it’s set to be re-awakened this Halloween season… with a classical twist!
We’re here today to exclusively report that Massari has signed with Varese Sarabande to release Killer Klowns from Outer Space: The Orchestral Soundtrack!
“In the next few weeks, the orchestra, Bear McCreary (“The Walking Dead”) and I will be recording the album here in Los Angeles,” Massari told us in an e-mail.
Furthermore, Varese Sarabande will have the soundtrack’s first pressing available at an unforgettable live event on Sunday, October 22, 2017!
“This spectacular event, “Killer Klowns from Outer Space: Film with Live Orchestra” will be at The Montalban Theater on Sunday, October 22, 2017 at 8:00 p.m. Composer John Massari will conduct The Hollywood Chamber Orchestra AND a Secret Surprise band will perform the Killer Klowns theme song.”
“Cinematic Void will host a Q&A with filmmakers Charlie Chiodo, Stephen Chiodo and Edward Chiodo, members of The Hollywood Chamber Orchestra and composer John Massari.”
“This incredible event will include Cosplay, real live Killer Klowns, authentic KKFOS movie props and fan artwork, a dinosaur petting zoo, Killer Klown face painting, authentic tattoo contest and of course popcorn and cotton candy! Basically, a circus presented by Cinematic SteamPunk!”
You can grab tickets over on the Montalban Theater’s website.
