Tomatoes is definitely not for everyone. You have to have a twisted sense of humor and a love of B-grade horror movies. If you think The Rocky Horror Picture Show is pure genius and Ed Wood's Plan 9 From Outer Space is brilliantly bad then you'll love Tomatoes. What other movie would dare include a black undercover agent disguised as Adolph Hitler? That takes some big tomatoes!
Trust me, director John De Bello is in on the joke. He knows what he's doing and turns the sight gag knob to 11. He makes fun of everything from Jaws to Lassie to every 1950's SCi-Fi and creature feature you've ever seen. Furthermore, the sound the killer tomatoes make when they appear on screen is hilarious. It definitely adds to the sense of camp.
Make no mistake about it. This is a terrible film and is often regarded as one of the worst movies ever made. I couldn't disagree more. There are plenty of bad films that are just plain bad. Attack of the Killer Tomatoes manages to suck and be thoroughly entertaining at the same time. Nicely done!
RATING: Excellently bad.
