Storyline

After a wave of reports of mysterious attacks involving people and pets being eaten by the traditionally docile fruit, a special government task force is set up to investigate the violent veggies and put a stop to their murderous spree. Included in this crack team are a lieutenant who never goes anywhere without his parachute, an underwater expert who's never out of his scuba gear, and a master of disguise who conceals his appearance by dressing as a black Adolf Hitler. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Schlock in perfection!
9 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

Some may call this the worst movie of all times, but if you have shots like "The Toxic Avenger", "Plan 9 from outer space" or "Dracula Vs. Frankenstein" in your collection this is exactly the right film for you! The humor in "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" appears like a cheap version of Zucker/Abrahams/Zucker-flicks à la "Airplane!" or "The Naked Gun", but always pretty entertaining and amusing! If you´re in search for the right stuff for your next party check this out - but don´t do the mistake and take this too serious in any way!!
