Syfy to Make ‘Killer Klowns from Outer Space’ and ‘Critters’ Films [Exclusive]



We’re bringing all the treats this Halloween season and have just learned of some massively exciting news regarding two beloved 1980’s classics.

Bloody Disgusting is hearing exclusively that Syfy is in talks to license the rights to make new feature films based on the Chiodo brothers’ Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1988) and Stephen Herek’s Critters (1986).

While Critters has seen multiple sequels, fans have been clamoring for a Killer Klowns followup for decades. In the film, aliens who look like clowns come from outer space and terrorize a small town. Syfy is making franchise reboots part of their new business model with a perfect example being Leprechaun Returns, set to premiere in March of 2019.

Critters is also sci-fi-themed and followed a group of small, furry aliens that make lunch out of the locals in a farming town. Leonardo DiCaprio made his film debut in the third Critters.

What would you like to see out of new films? Sequels? Remakes? What kind of story?
