Saturday Afternoon Program

At 2:00 P.M. at the Wayne Theatre, the second film festival program began.

A video introduction called ALIEN STORIES, SCIENCE, SPOOFS, AND SERIES kicked off the afternoon's entertainment. Watch it on YouTube. The audio was changed to meet copyright restrictions.

After a Sunglow Restaurant pie was awarded in the raffle drawing, the program was interrupted by commotion in the back of the theatre where an alien had been spotted. Participants were asked to remain calm.

The alien escaped, but things are now under control. We were planning to interrogate the prisoner, but since he's dead we'll need to use our new image regeneration brainscan machine to telepathically extract images from his brain. We just happen to have some world renowned alien scientists and film experts to help us interpret the images. We'll also need some help from the audience.

A video can be viewed of the BRAIN CONNECTION. Watch it on YouTube.

Below you'll find a condensed transcript of the image analysis and discussion.

A raffle drawing was held for a set of movies, T-shirt, and poster.

Killer Klowns from Outer SpaceSaturday Matinee - Killer Klowns from Outer Space

Killer Klowns is an 1988 comedy horror movie classic. It's written, directed and produced by the Chiodo brothers – Charles, Stephen, and Edward. The brothers maintain that all it took to convince the studio to back their production was a one-page treatment and a picture of a clown holding a gun. It must be the inherent creepiness of someone dressed as a clown. In fact this is only film that they have done that - - though they have worked on many other films and filled various roles such as creating visual effects (amazing characters in stop-motion animation and live puppetry, make-up effects, and animatronic props and costumes) plus producing films.

The film plot is pretty much summed up in the title - - it is about an alien race who look like clowns and visit Earth to capture and harvest people as food! About the only recognized cast member is veteran character actor John Vernon as Officer Mooney. But some may identify Christopher Titus in a small role as Bob McReed.
