This year marks 30 years since we first met the Killer Klowns from Outer Space, and a special event taking place this May in Los Angeles will celebrate the film in the grand fashion it deserves. For the first time ever, you’ll be able to experience Killer Klowns like never before… with a live orchestral score conducted by John Massari!
Massari will conduct the Hollywood Chamber Orchestra for the special event, taking place at Los Angeles’ The Montalban on Saturday, May 19, 2018.
If you can’t make it, have no fear: Varese Sarabande is releasing Massari’s Killer Klowns from Outer Space: Reimagined, a brand new CD on May 25. The album features the original score performed by members of The Hollywood Chamber Orchestra, with new orchestrations by Massari and Bernhard Eder. The Dickies even recorded a BRAND NEW version of the film’s theme song featuring an extra creepy intro!
As for the 30th anniversary event, it was recently detailed…
“For the 30th Anniversary, Massari has created a three-ring Sci-Fi/Horror celebration, reuniting an amazing line-up of special guests, including the film’s creators, the Chiodo Brothers, musical guests The Dickies, stars Grant Cramer and Suzanne Snyder.
At 6PM, the Kosmic Klown circus celebration will begin with stilt walkers, balloon folding artist Buster Balloon Cadwell, contortionist Bonnie Morgan, plus fortune tellers, strong men and women, magicians, body art, fan arts and crafts, and of course the Killer Klowns. There will be a pre-show Q&A at 7PM featuring Stephen Chiodo (writer/director), Charles Chiodo (writer/art director), Edward Chiodo (writer/producer), Grant Cramer (Mike Tobacco), Suzanne Snyder (Debbie Stone), members of The Dickies, and composer John Massari, moderated by Jim Branscome of Cinematic Void.
Following the Q&A, at 8PM, the film will be screened with it’s original musical score performed live by The Hollywood Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Massari. LA’s very own original punk rockers, The Dickies, will perform their enduring classic Killer Klowns From Outer Space theme song.”
