January 3, 2017 - Finding Carter
THE CAST OF KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE
We have arrived. A new year is on us. Yes, 2017 has stormed in and brought us code new challenges. One thing we had a whole lot of in 2016 are clowns. From a presidential choosing that resembled a circus, to a array of frightful clowns terrifying tiny suburban areas, these pale make-up wearing nightmares are behind and some-more frightening than ever. Thus, what improved approach to start it all off by looking during one of my favorite flicks from when we was a kid. That’s right, KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE is filled with crazy characters, kooky sequences and a expel prepared to perform in a weird universe following a group of aliens, finish with red noses and vast red shoes, terrorizing a tiny town. The Stephen Chiodo destined crack is installed with awesomely nonsensical effects, and yes, lots of psycho clowns prepared to means stately mayhem.
With a new year, we wanted to try something a tiny opposite with Where in a Horror are they Now. Instead of looking during one actor and their whole career, now we are going to take a wander down memory line and revisit some of a stars of this cult classic. Among a actors to sentinel off a immorality entities from beyond, we could find a good John Vernon (DIRTY HARRY, ANIMAL HOUSE, THE OUTLAW JOSEY WALES) as good as Royal Dano (THE OUTLAW JOSEY WALES, THE RIGHT STUFF, SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES) and so many more. While we’ve unfortunately mislaid both Mr. Dano and Mr. Vernon, there are a few expel members that we competence find really familiar. So here we are, let’s take a demeanour during some of a informed faces who battled these wandering pranksters from space.
THEN – CHRISTOPHER TITUS: First up, we competence be informed with a name Christopher Titus. The really initial credit for Mr. Titus happened to be a really film in question. It was in 1988 when Titus portrayed Bob McReed in KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE. It competence have been a smaller role, though it led a actor to fast move from a horrors of string candy to a tiny shade with day actor roles on Columbo and 21 Jump Street – a array of course. When it came to a genre, a actor took on a integrate of intriguing flicks including CRASH DIVE (1997) and SCAR (2007)- also starring genre favorite Angela Bettis (pictured above). Much of this comedic actors success was in television. In fact, we competence be familiar with his brief lived sitcom Titus, that aired from 2000-2002.
NOW: While a actor usually has a few IMDb credits, he seems to be operative rather consistently. You can find him creation guest appearances on a array of radio shows including The Exes, Rizzoli Isles and Finding Carter, all in 2015. In 2016 he was concerned in a plan entitled SPECIAL UNIT, a comedy about a Van Nuys PD carrying to sinecure disabled clandestine detectives. He also has something called BORN WITH A DEFECT now in post-production – a underline that examines his life as a stand-up comic. And vocalization of stand-up, this humorous dude continues to work on creation people giggle for a vital and that is a really good thing.
THEN – SUZANNE SNYDER: Suzanne was a flattering lady in a Eighties who seemed in a array of TV shows and underline films. There was a voluptuous comedy CLASS in 1983. A year after she had a tiny (uncredited) purpose in THE LAST STARFIGHTER. In 1985 she had nonetheless another tiny purpose in REMO WILLIAMS: THE ADVENTURE BEGINS. John Hughes brought her in to play Deb in a classical WEIRD SCIENCE, also in 1985. And finally, we have a tiny genre fun with her work in Fred Dekker’s comedic fright crack NIGHT OF THE CREEPS (1986). She continued to take on a frightful stuff in cinema like RETRIBUTION and TOMORROW’S A KILLER (aka PRETTYKILL), both in 1987. The same year that she fought aliens in white face make-up, she was adult opposite a undead in RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD II.
NOW: After a ton of radio credits and low bill features, Suzanne apparently took a tiny time off. Her final underline was a 2013 comedy DANCING ON A DRY SALT LAKE. Perhaps focusing on family as against to a career, Suzanne now lives in California with her 4 children according to Wikipedia. And judging from her Twitter page, she is a Yoga instructor as well. Considering a array of sci-fi and fear facilities she did, maybe a intelligent filmmaker will remonstrate a poetic Ms. Snyder to lapse for a fright or dual on a large screen. Or maybe radio will once again call out and move her behind into a limelight. Either way, here is anticipating she is vital a happy life distant from a rascally Killer Klowns.
THEN – GRANT CRAMER: Grant Cramer was a bit of a heartthrob behind in a day. The actor done his initial entrance in a film that happens to be flattering suitable for today. In a 1980 slasher crack NEW YEAR’S EVIL, Grant played Derek Sullivan alongside Roz Kelly. The actor took on a integrate of Eighties cult flicks including HARDBODIES (1984) and KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE (1988). He continued to work in a few B-movies like a movement thriller HANGFIRE (1991) and AUNTIE LEE’S MEAT PIES (1992) with Karen Black, Michael Berryman and Pat Morita. In 1994 we could find Grant in LOVE IS A GUN, HAIL CAESAR and a voluptuous thriller SAVE ME. If we are going to do a New Year’s Eve fear flick, we competence as good take on Christmas, and he did with SANTA CLAWS in 1996.
NOW: Mr. Cramer has positively embraced B-pictures in a large way. From ADDICTED TO MURDER 3: BLOOD LUST in 2000 to RAPTOR in 2001, he clearly feels right during home with all sorts of cheap shockfests. Recently we could find him holding on a purpose of Mr. Papyrus in a regretful comedy THE FINAL SONG. What’s subsequent for Grant? Well, we competence have listened about this though a Killer Klowns are clearly entrance back. Grant is scheduled to reprise his purpose as Mike Tobacco in THE RETURN OF KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE IN 3D! That’s right! The subsequent time somebody gets their “block knocked off” it will fly right out into a audience! And we for one am anxious to see a actor lapse to this long-awaited (?) sequel. Oh what a hell, I’m flattering damn excited!
There we have it folks! We here during AITH will never forget about how cold a KILLER KLOWNS were. And if you’d like to see what these excellent talents are adult to, we can follow Suzanne on Twitter and Facebook. You can follow Grant on Facebook and Twitter as well. And finally, what is adult with funnyman Titus? If you’d like to locate him on a comedy circuit or see what special he is promoting, we can find his Facebook here, and Twitter here.
