Shannon Talks Terror Toons 3 With Director Joe Castro!!

Terror Toons is one shocking, gore-filled, bloody epic that proves cartoons shouldn’t be trusted. In preparation for the release of the third installment in the trilogy, we sat down with director Joe Castro to learn more about Terror Toons, why he loves gore so much, and what it was like to work with the legendary director Herschell Gordon Lewis.

Shannon: Hi Joe! Thanks so much for speaking with me today! For those who are not familiar with the Terror Toons trilogy, can you tell us a little bit about them and your newest one, Terror Toons 3, is about?

Joe Castro: Absolutely! The Terror Toons trilogy, what is it all about. Basically, in a nutshell, Terror Toons are killer cartoons that have come from the cartoon convention into our physical world and they stalk and kill people in a cartoon-style fashion; however, when you die, you die for

Encapsulated Cinema: The Summer of Massacre, Alyce, and Cold Sweat

The Summer of Massacre (2011)“Terror Toons” mastermind Joe Castro’s balls-out insane horror anthology “The Summer of Massacre” is one of the weirdest cinematic rides you can experience without first ingesting scores of illegal narcotics. The first segment is clearly the most inventive — the body count in this story alone is through the freaking roof — though each chapter has its own unique set of strong points. However, Castro’s approach to on-screen mayhem takes some getting used to. At first you may think the effects look cheap, but by the end of the feature, you’ll grow to appreciate their decidedly peculiar charms. After all, some of the picture’s brutally creative kills couldn’t possibly work without the help of a little homegrown CGI. “The Summer of Massacre” isn’t for the squeamish, nor is it appropriate for those who proudly wash themselves in waters of political correctness. You know precisely who you are.

Joe Castro Goes for the World Record with The Summer of Massacre

The mastermind behind the “Terror Toons” duology — two films that I recommend to anyone with a penchant for extremely bizarre no-budget cinema — is looking to break into The Guinness Book of World Records with his latest endeavor “The Summer of Massacre”. If the press release is to be believed, the film has the highest body count of any motion picture in history. It’s an interesting gimmick, though it remains to be seen if all of these kills are contained within a film that anyone can stomach.

Check Out the Mind-Blowing Body Count in The Summer of Massacre

Lots of horror films claim to have insane body counts. However, only one claims to have had it verified by Guinness World Records. The Summer of Massacre anthology film boasts eight slashers introduced across five stories throughout the film and a body count that may be the biggest of all time. Wow, that's quite the pile of dead.

Creators of The Summer of Massacre have reported that Guinness World Records has honored them with the distinction of having the largest body count ever in a horror film. We investigated this claim and unfortunately could not verify it with a search of the Guiness World Records website, but that doesn't mean that the red isn't seriously flowing in this film. Check out the trailer below to verify that!

This Week’s Worst Movie Ever: Terror Toons

Every week, we find a new Worst Film Ever and deliver it to you as a public service. These films should be avoided at all costs, but if you absolutely have to see them, strap on your rosary beads and prepare to lose your faith in film! This week’s Worst Movie Ever is: Terror Toons (2002) Synopsis: Candy, a ridiculously well endowed teen (that means she has big boobs) receives a mysterious package in the mail from none other than the Devil, which she confuses with, I guess, her Netflix subscription. This buxom peroxide blonde pops in the DVD to watch the adventures of Dr. Carnage (a doctor) and Max Assassin (a gorilla). Soon, the toons escape their poorly drawn world and turn into gigantic men in poorly made suits who go about slaughtering all those in the house. Oh did I forgot to mention that Candy's sister Cindy is hosting a lame-ass party? Because
