Killer Klowns From Outer Space | 1988

Killer Klowns from Outer Space location: Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, California
Killer Klowns from Outer Space location: Eeeek! Killer klowns on the rampage: Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, California

Aliens, looking astonishingly like circus clowns, begin to take over a small town, but who’s going to believe the kids who’ve seen them?

The quiet little town of ‘Crescent Cove’ is Watsonville, on Highway 1 between Santa Cruz and Monterey on the central California coast.

This climax of this enjoyably trashy horror was filmed a few miles to the north, on the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, 400 Beach Street, Santa Cruz, the state’s only surviving traditional seafront funfair.

The boardwalk was also seen in Hal Ashby's 1971 dark comedy Harold And Maude, The Sting 2, and was, of course, the setting for Joel Schumacher’s teen vampire flick The Lost Boys.
