Storyline

In a quiet suburban neighborhood, two sisters are about to experience the dark and sinister world of Terror Toons. Candy and Cindy's parents have traveled out of town for the weekend leaving the two sisters home alone. Cindy receives a mysterious package in the mail with a free DVD cartoon sent to her by the Devil himself. Candy is having a house party with some firends while Cindy views the cartoon in her room. She unintentionally lets loose two homicidal cartoon characters, Dr. Carnage and Max Assasin. They are out of the cartoon dimension and into the world as we know it. The feindish characters talk, torment and kill the partygoers in wild and kooky cartoon traditions. Cindy is the only one who has the power to stop the demented animations from continuing their insane murder spree. Can she save her friends? Can she save herself from the crazy mayhem?....or will everyone die? Written by www.braindamagefilms.com

Who says cartoon violence is harmless?
5 December 2010 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Two sisters settle in for the evening when their parents head off. Young Candy (Lizzy Borden, arguably best known for her work in the adult movie industry) stays in her room to watch a "Terror Toons" DVD she received in the mail while Cindy (Beverly Lynne) lets her friend convince her that inviting a couple of guys over is a good idea and then the two guys manage to convince her that playing Strip Ouija is a good idea. All is well and good until the Terror Toons (specifically, the characters Dr. Carnage and Max Assassin) manage to break out of the TV set in Candy's room and unleash their blood-soaked cartoon carnage.

Rudy Balli wrote the screenplay here but it's based on a story co-created by the director, Joe Castro, so it's only fair that he gets most of the blame. Having said that, there are quite a few things to praise amongst the obvious dross.

While it's obvious that the budget for this movie wouldn't even cover the cost of my DVD addiction for a year what was available to the film-makers has been used well. The acting is pretty much terrible from everyone involved but there are some good moments of gory nastiness here and, it has to be said, a very surreal and cartoonish feel to many scenes. Which is the aim of the whole thing.

It may not quite be able to reach it's aims but this film certainly plays out like a blood-soaked Joe Dante movie and that's no bad thing. It's just a shame that the poor acting, lack of anything interesting in between the scenes of gore and/or surreal madness and terrible final 20 minutes drag things down to below average.

Of course, that won't stop me watching the sequel whenever I get my hands on it.
