COMPANY: Full Moon Entertainment
RUNTIME: 76 mins
PLOT: The demon clown Killjoy is resurrected once again, but this time he is trapped in his own realm. Using a magic mirror, he lures four unsuspecting college students into his realm where he can have his macabre fun.
REVIEW: Killjoy 3 (renamed a couple years after-the-fact as Killjoy's Revenge) surprisingly turned out to be much better then the two previous movies, and came across as much more professionally-made. This is more along the lines of what Full Moon is known for (which granted, I suppose isn't saying much, but it's a huge compliment after watching the last two pieces of shit in this series). It's a movie like Killjoy 3 that I can come home from a long hard day at work, crack open a beer, and just put on to veg out to and have a bit of fun with.
There's some great, inventive, gory kill scenes, good characterization, actual decent acting, and the best part is that apart from keeping the look of the Demon Clown from Part 2 (which design-wise looked different, albeit it better, then it did in the first movie), this one completely ignores the second movie and is more of a direct sequel to the first movie, bringing back the rules and magical powers of Killjoy and the ways that he operates that had been established in the first movie but was ignored in the second. There's even a nice little unexpected nod to the events of the first movie.
This one even brings in three other demonic clowns under the command of Killjoy, which helps make this movie a bit more fresh from the previous two and were a great source of extra comedy. If it wasn't for the connections to the first movie that this pulls out in some twists, I'd almost say just skip both Killjoy 1 and 2 and start with this one. Then again, unless you suffer through those two, you may not have the appreciation for this one that I do.
