Aliens, Clowns & Geeks is a 2019 American science-fiction comedy feature film about an actor who stumbles upon the key to the universe and is drawn into an intergalactic war between clowns and aliens.

Plot:

Eddy Pine (Bodhi Elfman) is a jaded actor dealing with the cancellation of his series. To complicate matters, he wakes up with the key to the universe stuck up his posterior.

Apparently, an alien Clown Emperor (Verne Troyer) is in hot pursuit, as are his rivals, the Green Aliens.

Meanwhile, Professor von Scheisenberg (French Stewart) and his comely Swedish assistants, the Svenson sisters (Rebecca Forsythe, Angeline-Rose Troy), come to Eddy’s aid. If only Eddy hadn’t fallen for Helga, then the aliens confuse his brain with sister Inga.

And when mad little Clown Captain (Martin Klebba) steps on the gas and shifts his spaceship into fourth gear, all hell breaks loose…

Reviews [click links to read more]:

Aliens, Clowns & Geeks is equal parts irreverent satire, raunchy comedy, and surreal fever-dream; a nonstop thrill-ride that will have you clutching your stomach with laughter. It’s great entertainment and perfect for chasing away the COVID-19 Blues. Simultaneously a love letter to Hollywood and a self-deprecating send-up of the entertainment industry, the film is a 90-minute party you’ll be glad you attended! Aliens, Clowns & Geeks isn’t for everyone–but horror fans aren’t known for being easily offended.” Dread Central
