Killer Klowns from Outer Space Trivia
We believe the following trivia is all legit. If it's bogus or you have additional info, please update us.
Thanks to Don HoffmanFour characters including Mike Tobacco, Joe Lombardo, and the Terenzi Brothers Rich and Paul were based on real-life childhood friends of the Chiodo Bros, names and all. Mike's full name however is only mentioned in the end credits as well as characters Debbie Stone, and Officer Dave Hansen although a close-up of Dave's uniform in one shot reveals the name tag "Hansen", giving the hero more identity.
Rewind ArchiveTo give a tribute to Hitchcock, the director, Stephen Chiodo, mimicked "Psycho's" bloody shower drain with a toilet bowl swirl.
Thanks to evilashSuzanne Snyder, who plays Deb, also co-starred in John Hughes' "Weird Science" as, again, a girl named Deb.
Thanks to SteveThe actor John Vernon also had a bit role in Keenan Ivory Wayans 1988 movie "I'm gonna git you sucka" (he played the crime boss 'Mr.Big' at the movies end); he also starred in the comedy classic "Animal House" as the Dean of the college.
Thanks to MarkRoyal Dano (Hillbilly with the dog) and John Vernon (the bully police officer) both appeared in Clint Eastwood's "The Outlaw Josey Wales".
Thanks to PhatpantsActor Royal Dano also starred as the benevolent "Gramps"...a 170 year old wild-west zombie in "House 2: The Second Story".
Thanks to PhatpantsThe Chiodo Brothers also designed the 'Krites'...the tiny, savage and perpetually hungry sagebrush-like aliens seen in 'Critters 1,2,3 and 4'.
Thanks to Jeff AndersonAA pre-"Titus" star Christopher Titus [in glasses] has a small role as a sarcastic college student caught drinking a beer while crossing the street by John Vernon.
Thanks to HoudiIn the 1997 PC first-person shooter 'BLOOD', one of the levels features a circus village. The main character enters a large circus tent and there is a huge figure of the clown 'Jo-Jo' from Killer Klowns. Step on the nearby stage and you are treated to a voice chanting 'We Want Jo-Jo... We Want Jo-Jo'. It has nothing to do with the plot of the game, just the game writers paying homage to the film, I guess!!
Thanks to Pat BGrant Cramer (Mike) is the son of Terry Moore, the Hollywood contract actress who was allegedly the secret wife of Howard Hughes.
Thanks to Antonio Gonzalez Jr.Royal Dano's voice was best known at Disneyland and Disney World as the voice of Abraham Lincoln. Sadly, at Disneyland, they re-did the show with another voice talent.
There's often fake stuff floating round, y'know? -Like the 'ghost boy' that can allegedly be seen in "Three Men And A Baby".
But, nothing bogus that we know yet for "Killer Klowns from Outer Space".
