Killjoy (2000)

Image
REVIEW BY: Jeffrey Long


COMPANY: Full Moon Entertainment

RUNTIME: 72 mins

FORMAT: DVD

PLOT: After they murder a fellow teenager, a group of inner city high school students run afoul of everyone's worst nightmare: a killer demon clown summoned for vengeance. Killjoy the Clown kills bad guys and the innocent alike, and only Jada, a gifted student, can stop the killer in its grease painted tracks.

REVIEW:
I've always been a fan of movies made by Full Moon. Sure, their classic stuff is leaps and bounds better then anything they put out this day in age, but there are still some entertaining gems in the modern mix (The Gingerdead Man, Puppet Master 9: Axis of Evil, Zombies vs Strippers).

REVIEW BY: Jeffrey Long


COMPANY: New Horizons

RUNTIME: 92 mins

FORMAT: BluRay

PLOT: A baby Pliosaur, a long-extinct prehistoric species of shark, swims away when the chunk of Arctic glacier that it had been frozen in breaks away due to global warming. Three years later, this 'Dinoshark' is a ferocious predatory adult and has made its way to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico where it starts killing tourists and locals just offshore.

REVIEW: Over the course of this upcoming weekend (August 18th and 19th), the Space Channel here in Canada is airing some kind of Killer Shark Movie Marathon, where-in they will be airing such classics as Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus and its sequel Mega Shark vs Crocosaurus, Sharktopus, Jersey Shore Shark Attack, Malibu Shark Attack, Dinocroc, Swamp Shark, and Dinoshark. Space was kind enough to send me a screener of Dinoshark for review, however I actually already owned that one on BluRay, so for the purpose of this review I'll actually be watching the BluRay…
