Zombies are reanimated corpses that eat human flesh and spread their infection among those they bite. They are a major archetype of horror movies. In this book, film critic Steve Hutchison reviews and ranks 50 of the best horror movies featuring zombies ever released. How many have you seen?
An inside joke
If it’s evil clowns you want, evil clowns you’ll get. Killjoy is constant. It’s constantly bad and it’s constantly fun. It’s also pure shlock. With Full Moon Entertainment, there is no severance between script and execution. No one’s winning a subtlety contest. It all started with my favorite clown Batty Boop no longer body-painted and that made me sad. That was the writer fucking with me.
You get actor Trent Haaga speaking to himself, as Killjoy, in a meta interview on a quiz show. This is the kind of stuff that makes this installment one of the best so far. It’s extremely niched, though. It’s one inside joke after another, and the actors are brought to the forefront. Now, the writing is messy. It’s a clusterfuck. This film is way too complicated.
With Killjoy, Puppet Master, and Full Moon films in general, it’s really easy to lose the connection. Every installment builds on a fanbase that is getting thinner. So, who’s Killjoy’s Psycho Circus for? Stoners, drunks, and old-timers. These films are trippy, nonsensical; they’re colorful, comical, and gory. This sure isn’t the worst in the series and I’m ready for more!
