Critic Reviews for Evil Toons
Its heart's in the right place, but that's about all.
Classic cheesy horror movie. Hot girls, lots of nudity, and the right tone of irreverence.
How bad can animation get? Watch this film. A total waste of an animator's time.
Some of the worst stuff ever squeezed onto video.
Audience Reviews for Evil Toons
Famed cult director Fred Olen Ray, king of 80's schlock brought us his most demented and absurd film yet way back in 1992 (even though the look of the film suggest mid-80's) called Evil Toons. Many years ago, the owner (David Carradine) of house haunted by demons from a book eerily resembling the Necronomicon kills himself by way of hanging (how about that for a premonition!). Years later, four sexy young girls (including Monique Gabrielle, Suzanne Ager and pornstars Madison Stone & Barbara Dare [dubbed Stacey Nix]) are hired on by the great Dick Miller to clean up the infamous house. Instead the girls occupy their time by getting naked a bunch for no apparent reason and using the book to summon a (singular) Evil Toon, which kills one of the girls and inhabits her body throughout the rest of the movie, save for a small blip at the film's climax, leaving the Toon to actually be present in the film for a whopping 1-1 1/2 minutes. Honestly, Fred, why even bother calling it Evil Toons, you old boob! Anyways, the story is dumb, the acting is dumb, and the overall film is dumb, but if you have a soft spot for the work of Fred, or enjoy looking at some amazing early-90's naked chicks, this film will suit you. Aside from Carradine and Miller, there's also some cameos from TV star Arte Johnson and the ultimate 80's underground scream queen (and my true love) Michelle Bauer (yes, she does pop the titties out in her brief role). Yes, the girls get naked a lot, but that's NOT softcore. People nowadays do not understand what softcore films are. Imagine a hardcore adult film...ok, now take away the insertions and cum shots...and there you have it: softcore. Lots of naked chicks in this film, but nary a single sex scene (though it does come close to one). That's not a softcore film folks.
Not sure the reason behind the pluralization as there was only one ?toon? and he wasnt present nearly enough, but this was made up for with a liberal dose of (actual) boobs (including Monique Gabrielle!) for no real reason. David Carradine also demonstrates the method of his demise. The Necronomicon is delivered to a mansion which is being house-sat by 4 hot (but VERY eighties-looking) college girls. They page through it and release a demon who can change its physical appearance and it causes all sorts of problems (ever see a cartoon rape a live-action chick?). Lots of great moments in this horror-comedy. Pair it with Nightmare Sisters.
David Carradine should lick Quentin Tarantino's shoes clean twice a day because if it wasn't for him and 'Kill Bill,' he'd still be making appearances in these softcore cheapies. Fred Olen Ray is no Jim Wynorski when it comes to softcore comedy, and the laughs here are infrequent. There is some amusement to be found in the wretched acting, but don't try to find any scares (except in the acting.) However we should give 'Evil Toons' credit for lampooning the horror genre years before 'Scream' with self-referential exchanges like, "Why do I have to go downstairs by myself?" Her friend answers, "How else are we going to get knocked off one by one?"
