Quotes

Michael: What am I worried about? I'm 22 years old, I'm backpacking through France... Life is wonderful. Oh, who am I kidding. Michael J. Fox is a major motion picture star and I'm making a Killer Tomatoes movie, part 4!. What am I worried about? I'm making a movie. I'm filming in France. I've got a piece of the merchandising! It beats dinner theater.

Sacre Bleu, this was fun!
13 December 2009 | by CoventrySee all my reviews

"Killer Tomatoes Eat France", which is the fourth and final installment in John DeBello's vegetable quadrilogy, is only my first acquaintance with the series. I love horror and I love comedy, but I'm usually very skeptical about a combination of both; especially when the storyline revolves on giant murderous tomatoes. But I watched this thing together with some friends and whilst heavily intoxicated and, you know, under these circumstances the silly premise isn't even half that bad. Typically, the French stereotypes and jokes are the funniest aspect in this film and actually often downright hilarious. The French are all peasants that live in really low-built houses and only consider fat women to be attractive. They read "Ze Times" and weave bread. The women are all called Marie and they're ready to have sex for free with every stranger that passes by. The story centers once more on the malignant Professor Mortimer Gangrene (John Astin having a blast again) and his killer tomatoes trying to take over the world. After he escaped from prison with the help of his loyal tomatoes, Gangrene entrenches himself in France in a really big castle (appropriately called Igor's really big castle) and kidnap a famous and furry tomato singer for one of his diabolical plans. It's entirely up to a random American tourist and a sexy French maid to save the world. There's also a sub plot stating that the war against the tomatoes will bring forward the new King of France, which makes this film actually a fairly witty parody on "The Man in the Iron Mask". According to most people who have seen the other three previous installments, unlike myself, this "fourth part in the trilogy" isn't as funny in comparison and the franchise is turning more and more children friendly. I can't really judge the other three films, but I did think this was reasonably funny and entertaining.
