Expectations: Moderately high. The last one was great, and the buzz has been very positive.

On the B-movie scale:


Coming off the impressive Killjoy 3: Killjoy’s Revenge, writer/director John Lechago is back to bring Full Moon fans another dose of the demon clown whether they wanted it or not. (And rest assured, there will most definitely be a Part 5.) Thankfully, Killjoy Goes to Hell lives up to the previous series entry, and although I liked Part 3 better, this one is still pretty damn good for a modern Full Moon movie. It’s easily the best produced film from the studio since the last Killjoy film, and it’s quite impressive the amount of play they were able to squeeze out of a few simple sets.

Like the title suggests, in this one Killjoy goes to hell, but not for a relaxing vacation… he’s on trial! All these people slipping through his fingers over the course of the series have been adding up, and the devious girl still alive at the end of Killjoy 3 (Jessica Whitaker) is the last straw. So when an old hag summons Killjoy after finding part of his face in a trash heap (one of my favorite moments), she promptly delivers him to the devil and we’re thrust deep into a courtroom drama that only Full Moon could deliver. Move over 12 Angry Men! Step aside A Few Good Men! Killjoy’s back and he’s funnier than ever!

Expectations: I just hope it’s not the slog that part 2 was.

Holy shit! Killjoy 3: Killjoy’s Revenge was everything I could have wanted out of a Killjoy movie! I lament the fact that it’s no longer an “urban,” blaxploitation-influenced series, but other than that Killjoy 3 delivers big time. I would go so far to say that it’s not only the most fun Killjoy film, it’s also the best Full Moon movie of the last few years. Evil Bong 2 was pretty fun in its own way, but Killjoy 3 delivers on a whole different level.

The film opens with a short scene where “The Professor” summons Killjoy. The demon senses a great need in the man, so he creates three devious minions to help him in this quest for vengeance: Punchy the Hobo Clown, Freakshow the Mime (complete with a Kuato-style baby attached to his side), and Batty Boop, a hot girl in full clown body paint. But then the Professor reneges on the deal by picking up a book(?) and Killjoy is not amused! Back to the nether realms he goes, but first he vows to have his own revenge on this dastardly professor! The tables have turned. But wait Killjoy 3, you had me at “Kuato-style baby attached to his side.”
