Clown Gang Attacks Hippie Village, Survivors Offered Thirty Dollars and a Free Haircut

via goodloe byron

Damn it all.  Will the horror never cease?  It happened again.  Another goddamn clown attack.  Rampaging mad silliness, death and tickling.  That kind of thing.  Dig?

Students from the Baltimore clown college Circus Minimus sharpened their Silly Swords, picked up their Tulip Maces, and put on their Explody Shoes and drove to Stonedfuckedupville, the hippie village just outside the city.  And then...havoc.

The hippies didn't even see the clowns coming.  They were lounging peacefully outside their mud huts, smoking opium and talking to the clouds, hoping that Wookalia, god of the wookies would appear to them.  A hoard of about fifteen absolutely mad clown scholars bum rushed the place. Four hippies were killed before the clowns were driven off by the smell of vegan baking products and patchouli.

The Hippies announced that they will be suing the clown college for "at least a billiony, most trilliony smackaroonies."  The dean of Circus Minimus, Dorky Funnybottom, no doubt inspired by Costa Cruises, offered a quick apology and offered thirty dollars, a free haircut, and a red honking nose to the survivors.

There's been no word on whether the hippies will accept or decline this offer.  The spirit of Tongol Tuna appeared this morning and told them to tear down their mud huts and make their way to Arizona, where they shall sit in a circle and talk about wildlife and sandals for a month.

Further reports to come.  But first, a sandwich and a nap.

Salvation, USA: A Not-Thrilling Thriller

Written by Bernie Van De Yacht and directed by Yacht and Brett Donowho, Salvation, USA is a thriller, sort of. It reminded me a lot of a Lifetime movie with a little sex and swearing. Until the finale, which gets all sorts of batshit violent and bloody. Ah, but advertising, eh? If you watch this movie after having seen the poster, you’ll end up wondering when the hell you’re going to see some violence, as violence is most clearly implied by the thing. And if you haven’t seen the poster, you’ll watch Salvation, USA and suddenly get weirded out when a pretty basic drama gets really freakin’ bloody by the end.

The movie concerns Vinnie (Ryan Donowho), a guy who seems passionate about fixing old stoves, restoring them to their former pristine states. But it’s all a ruse. Fixing the stoves is his launchpad for a long con. Donowho is a very charming actor, and so it’s not hard for the audience to be pretty damn hypnotized by his performance. We want to believe there’s good inside the guy. …

G Rated Horror: The Legend of Boggy Creek

The Legend of Boggy Creek was written by Earl E. Smith, but the whole thing represents the vision of director Charles B. Pierce. The story was pieced together from the tales of local residents from Fouke, Arkansas, some of whom appeared in Boggy Creek as themselves. The so-called Fouke Monster, basically a sasquatch, was a folk legend that residents claimed was real. Reports began to surface in newspaper articles around Arkansas in the early 70’s and they seized Smith’s imagination. He knew he had found the subject of his first feature film.

Pierce is an interesting character. A self-motivated guy with a ton of ambition, he worked as a weatherman and a children’s show host named Mayor Chuckles before starting his own advertising firm. He made commercials for all sorts of companies throughout Arkansas. The owner of a trucking company client loaned Pierce $100,000 to get started on shooting Boggy Creek. The film was an almost instant success in cheap movie theaters and drive-ins and it…

Boy Meets Chrome: Christine

Written by Bill Phillips from a novel by Stephen King and directed by John Carpenter, Christine, released in 1983, is a love story between a boy and his car. This time, however, the car is alive and quite possessive of her boy.

She’s an older lover, too. Christine, a red Plymouth Fury, is a disheveled twenty-one years old when eighteen year old Arnie (Keith Gordon) falls for her. She’s broken down, in a state of disrepair and decay. When his best friend Dennis (Dean Stockwell) drives Arnie home after their first day of school, Arnie sees her sitting in the yard of a house that’s just as dilapidated at the car. Arnie decides he’s going to fix her, make her run again.

This movie is all about sex, love, and obsession and the moral lines that get blurred when these things interact with each other. Christine begins as Arnie and Dennis drive around discussing sex. Dennis, a football player and quite an attractive young man, has clearly had plenty of it, while Arnie is still a virgin. Denni…
