    I'd probably have to say I like Killer Klowns quite a bit more than Bad Taste. It's definitely a childhood favorite of mine.

    Killer Klowns From Outer Space, hands down.

    Bad Taste, as the case with all Peter Jackson films in my opinion, are overrated. This isn't to say they are bad, just overrated.

    KILLER KLOWNS was really boring to me. I suppose I should give it a second chance one of these days but I am in no hurry.

    I enjoyed BAD TASTE for what it was. Overrated? Now, probably. But I didn't really know much about Peter Jackson back then (pre-LOTR) so it was just this odd, gross, fun little movie I found at the video store. It has a special place in my heart. :)

    this is the first poll i refuse to vote in. i love them both too much to disrespect them by voting against one.

    Bad Taste was pretty good, and against other movies it may even win out. But it happened to hit a buzzsaw of a movie in this round!! Klowns wins with a knock out with an oversized boxing glove from a really small jack-in-the-box.

    Tough choice, but it came down to one question: Which one had the Dickies perform the theme song?

    Wow this thread is old. How did I miss these? While not as gory at all, I found the sets and overall tone a lot more fun on Killer Klowns.

    Both utter masterpieces, both easily among my favorite horror films ever made... So hard to choose. But Klowns scared me. So... KKfOS vote here.

    Bad Taste for me, but now I gotta re-watch Klowns to see why it's ahead. Just don't remember enough about it and sometimes I get distracted doing other things, which was the case last time I watched Klowns.

    Bad Taste!

    Killer Klowns was fun, but nowhere near the amount of hilarious mayhem, as in Bad Taste.

    Seriously, Bad Taste made me laugh so hard, I had to push the pause button MANY times during the film, too avoid dying of laughter :D
    More so than ANY other horror comedy.

    The only other comedy that made me laugh that hard, was, and still is, Monty Python's Quest for the Holy Grail :D

    I'm down with the Klowns.

    Bad Taste is an acquired one and beyond my palate.
