Killer Klowns from Outer Space is a fantastic cult classic sci-fi horror comedy from 1988 written and directed by the Chiodo Brothers.  The Chiodo brothers are these 3 brothers who grew up making films in their basement for fun and now work in the Hollywood special effects industry.  They do it all...puppets, creatures, stop motion and more! They created and operated the Critters in the movie Critters (1986) and it's sequels, they did the stop motion in the famous Large Marge scene in Pee Wee's Big Adventure and they created all of the mouse dioramas in the 2010 comedy Dinner for Schmucks. That's just the tip of the iceberg with the Chiodos.

Stephen Chiodo is my guest on this episode to talk all about Killer Klowns from Outer Space, his career in the special effects industry and more!  A great peek behind the curtain into the film industry.

Thanks for listening!
