3. Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1988)
OK, clowns are freaky enough without having them actually be an alien species who wraps its victims in cotton candy cocoons and eats them. However, this campy flick, where balloon-animals come to life and chase you down, helps make clowns bearable, even for those afflicted with coulrophobia. The clowns are hilarious. And I mean that in the sense that you want more of them on the screen—even more than you want the humans. Which makes me happy that Return of the Killer Klowns in 3D is on its way in 2016.
