I have to make a confession here. I had never heard of the KILLJOY movies until KILLJOY 3 came along. I assume there is a KILLJOY and KILLJOY 2, but I have never seen 'em. Heck, I didn't even know Full Moon Entertainment even made such a series, and I am a huge fan of Full Moon and their films. Somehow, I just missed this series of films. Before I go any further, here is the basic plot from the imdb website:
The demon clown Killjoy is resurrected once again, but this time he is not given the name of his victim and is trapped in his realm. Using a magic mirror he lures four unsuspecting college students into his realm where he can have his macabre fun! A mysterious man returns and we finally discover who Killjoy's true target is!
As sated before, I haven't seen the first two films, but that didn't take away from my enjoyment of this film by any means. Maybe some things would have made a little more sense, like some background info on Killjoy the Clown, which I assume was covered in the first film. But that being said, this is still a crazy, fun film that you can enjoy without seeing the other 2 films. Killjoy the Clown is a fun character which reminds me of a perfect hybrid of Pennywise the clown from Stephen King's film, IT, and Jim Carrey's MASK character. He is goofy buy deadly at the same time.
Along with Killjoy, we also get to see three of his demonic clown friends, including Punchy the Clown, Freakshow, and Batty Boop. Batty Boop is a seductive evil clown, with a very interesting costume, or lack thereof, actually. Her "costume" is nothing but body paint which is very interesting to say the least. My favorite clown friend of Killjoy's is the one they call Freakshow. He is very creepy upon first glance, but then becomes even more so when you realize he has a small, underdeveloped conjoined twin attached to his abdomen. Although somehow he is able to launch this little imp at people to attack them, still joined by what looks to be an umbilical cord type thing. Very strange indeed, but a lot of fun to watch for sure!
While the film does get confusing at times, with people going back and forth between the realms by means of the special mirror, this film is still a lot of fun overall. If you are a fan of the other Full Moon films, then you should like this one as well. It has all the signature things that makes the Full Moon films so much fun. Check this one out if you have the chance!
