Deliriously silly!

Shadows on the Wall

The really frustrating thing about Tomatoes is the toothlessness of its satire.

Even though there are about a zillion dumb parts, it never quite wears out its welcome.

Audience Reviews for Attack of the Killer Tomatoes!

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes is a fine comedy horror flick that spoofs the monster genre of films. The premise of this film is simple, yet somewhat effective. This film is one of the most underrated comedy horror flicks that I've seen. This is a good film that doesn't deserve the flack it has received, sure the film is ridiculous, but it intentionally does it. Everything about the film is over the top. The film plays out like a parody, and it does it very well. Attack of the Killer Tomatoes is one of the most original horror comedies I've seen. This is the perfect comedy horror flick for the horror fan looking for a ridiculous B movie. This film is quite underrated and should be seen as a good B movie that spoofs 1950's monster flicks. The film is one of the most original horror comedies and is pure fun from start to finish. Everything you see is done on purpose, and that's what makes this what it is. I can't state this enough, this is a good B movie that is a definite must see for fans of comedy horror. The acting is cheesy, and the premise is more than just silly. If you enjoy a good, cheesy comedy horror flick, then look no further than this film. Attack of the Killer Tomatoes is good fun, despite the fact that its beyond silly. If you're going into this film expecting a great film, you'll be sadly disappointed. On the other hand, if you're expecting a film that's so bad, it's good then this is definitely your film. Attack of the Killer Tomatoes is one memorable comedy horror flick that delivers a great time. A flawed film, but definitely enjoyable.

This movie is hilarious. It's sort of a spoof on the giant animal/insect craze of the 50s, but it's also funny in other ways too. If you love spoof movies or goofy comedies in general, I highly recommend this one.
