Movie Info

Years after the original defeat of the Killer Tomatoes, mad scientist Professor Gangreen unleashes a new strain of the killer plant -- one which can assume human form. This sequel to the sci-fi comedy Attack of the Killer Tomatoes traffics in similarly juvenile humor, though with a (slightly) larger budget.more

Audience Reviews for Return of the Killer Tomatoes!

Return of the Killer Tomatoes is a hilarious comedy horror film. This film stars a young George Clooney. This comedy horror film is really over the top, and everything is done deliberately. The film is pure fun from start to finish. This is the type of comedy horror flick that should only be watched by fans of these films. If you're going to expect something serious here, forget it. This film is pure cheese from start to finish. Sure the premise is stupid, but that's what makes this film so much fun. The acting is average, and is exactly what you'd expect from this type of film. There's plenty of memorable comedic moments in this film to appeal to horror comedy fans. Everything is so over the top, but it's done on purpose. Return of the Killer Tomatoes is simply a great Comedy horror flick that spoofs old school monster flicks, and other genres as well. The film isn't perfect, but it manages to be very entertaining. The best way to describe this is a mindless comedy horror flick that shouldn't be taken seriously whatsoever. This is a fun comedy horror flick that will appeal to B movie fans. The story is simple, yet it works. I enjoyed this film, and I thought that the film was a good sequel that equalled the cheesy fun of the first. There's some very funny performances here, and you'll be constantly entertained by this film, if you're in the right state of mind.

A perfect sequel to a great spoof film. Very 80s, and extremely hilarious on so many levels. If you liked the first one, you need to see this one.

If you expect a serious movie you'll be massively disappointed. If, however you're expecting a comedic spoof that doesn't take itself (or it's prequel) seriously then you're in for a wild ride. It's nearly worth watching just so you can admire George Clooney's 80's mullet. There's little plot, but instead there is a series of imaginative scenes which can really make you laugh (so long as you don't try and take the movie seriously). Heartily recommended.
