Overview

Synopsis

Killer Tomatoes Eat France!
The low-budget "Killer Tomatoes" series closed with this fourth chapter starring a returning John Astin as the resurrected Professor Gangrene, who resurfaces in France to continue his ongoing plot for world domination through the care and maintenance of the title fruit. Hoping to bank on his sidekick's resemblance to King Louis XVII (long prophesied to return to his throne), Gangrene sends his armies of tomato-monsters (who sport snarling, feral faces and one-liners this time out) to eliminate those who stand in his way. Among them is the nominal "hero," a has-been actor (Marc Price) spurred by the vacillating affections of winsome Parisian Marie (Angela Visser) to join the French army against the Juicy Red Menace. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi

Killer Tomatoes Strike Back
This third entry in the dumbfoundingly silly "Killer Tomatoes" series continues the low-budget franchise's tradition of bombarding audiences with endless inane sight gags, horror movie in-jokes, and "nudge-nudge, wink-wink" comic asides. This installment finds flamboyant mad scientist Professor Gangrene (an enthusiastically hammy John Astin) up to his old tricks. The madman responsible for the near-annihilation of humanity by the title fruit, Gangrene is currently masquerading as the host of trashy talk show "Talk of the Town," through which he mounts a temporarily successful media campaign restoring the red-stained reputation of the much-maligned tomato. Fortunately for an unwary populace, the professor's plot for world domination is foiled by hard-bitten detective Boyle (Rick Rockwell) and eminent "tomatologist" Dr. Kennedy Johnson (Crystal Carson). Though not as funny as the previous installment, Return of the Killer Tomatoes (which featured a young George Clooney in deadpan mode), this is still a mildly entertaining romp. The pulpy red menace would soon return for yet another sequel, but not before inspiring a silly animated kiddie-TV spinoff. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi
