Editorial Reviews

ELVIRA – Elvira busts out in her outrageously funny feature film debut. When her Great Aunt dies, famed horror hostess Elvira® heads for the uptight New England town of Falwell to claim her inheritance of a haunted house, a witch's cookbook and a punk rock poodle. RETURN OF THE KILLER TOMATOES– They‘re back and this time, they‘re really stewed! Mad genetic scientist Professor Gangreen (John Astin) is plotting to take over the world by creating a race of mighty tomato warriors and one wanton tomato woman (Karen Mistal). Can two heroes defeat the most fiendish red menace of all or will the girl of their dreams turn out be a complete vegetable? TRANSYLVANIA 6-5000 – Tabloid reporters (Jeff Goldblum and Ed Begley, Jr.) are sent to Transylvania to find the Frankenstein monster, where they face the horrors of a clumsy butler (Michael Richards), a nymphomaniac vampire (Geena Davis) and more Transylvanian oddballs. RETURN TO HORROR HIGH – Crippen High School was the scene of a series of brutal murders. The killer was never caught. A low-budget film crew (including George Clooney), has returned to film the story of what actually happened. Now it appears that the depraved maniac is back. SLEEPAWAY CAMP – When happy campers begin to die in a series of horrible accidents, they discover that someone – or something – has turned their summer of fun into a vacation to dismember. VAMP– Can a group of fraternity pledges survive a bizarre onslaught of vixens and vamps, or will the armies of the undead take the ultimate bite out of their night?

5.0 out of 5 stars FT, FT, FT! July 30, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Return Of The Killer Tomatoes is a film about many things. Product placement, TV news, big breasted babes in bikinis, Michael Jackson, Miami Vice, the Pope, scams, peanut butter on pizza and many other fads of the 80's. Starring such greats as George Clooney, John Astin and, of course, Karen Mistal (who has the best bottom of any B-movie actress I have ever seen) this is NOT as funny as the first but still has a ton of laughs within its many scenes.

But under all the humor is a serious view about how people felt about the last, closing years of the Cold War against Communism. In a time when the Red Menace was seen as giant ants or aliens from space the director was brave enough to show that not all Communists, who were represented by the tomatoes, were bad. Chad, the always confused main male character, falls in love with Tara, a tomato-woman(but then who won't fall in love with a smart, willing, good cooking, great dressing tomato?). And FT, played by FT,(who as we all know become a huge star in the film industry as while as live theater in Europe), starred as the socialist with a heart of gold, who was even willing to put his own life in danger for the American way of life. THIS is a B-MOVIE to beat all B-movies. And remember, Tomorrow IS another day!

4.0 out of 5 stars Like Mad Magazine on Film June 4, 2005
By Catman
Format:DVD
Probably the best of the 4 part Killer Tomato trilogy. Like Mad Magazine, it's chock full of sight gags, sound gags, satire and clever humor. This was George Clooney's first full length film and compared to the first killer tomato movie, the acting is pretty darn good throughout. Wacky satire at it's best. Next best tomato movie is "Killer Tomatoes Eat France" but it's not yet on DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than I expected December 22, 2001
Format:DVD
I own a VHS version of this movie (a really cheap version) and I think it's a bit better than the original. We get to see a young George Clooney is his "Facts Of Life" pre-ER era. John Astin provides a few good laughs as an evil scientist too. It's still a stupid Killer Tomatoes movie but there are some very funny moments and not-too-subtle jabs at commercialism. There's even a scene where our hero halts the movie and starts complaining about the blatent product placement. Just like the original it's all in the name of silliness.
I just hope this DVD is a good transfer as my VHS copy is practically unwatchable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Fricken Sweet December 27, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
You know the movies, and if you're looking at this page, you probably love them. The bottom line is, you get 6 classic campy DVDs, in their own cases, for a good price. Some of these DVDs are hard to find on their own - I personally had been looking for Return to Horror High for quite some time, before I decided to get this set. It's well worth the money - you won't be disappointed.

Format:VHS Tape
This movie is great! It has every video category in it! It all starts when evil Professer Gangreen(John Astin) makes a machine that can make tomatoes anyone. While he plots his evil plan pizza makers Matt (George Cloony) and Chad (Anthony Starke) are living peacefully making non tomatoe pizzas (included Jam instead of sauce). Later Chad meets Professer Gangreen's assistant (Karen Mistel) who is just a tomatoe in human form! Will Chad and Matt save the world from Professer Gangreen or will the girl of Chads dreams end up a tomatoe? You'll have to buy this movie to find out.

Format:DVD
AN UNFORGETTABLE FILM! Yes, I am not kidding, and I am not drunk! Okay, it's an extremely silly comedy, drawing from the same vein that was later tapped in "The Naked Gun" films. John "Gomez" Astin & a young bohunk named George Clooney give memorably hilarious performances. Those elements would make the film a delight. This film REALLY stands out when the movie is shut down due to lack of funds. Only blatant product placement can keep this production going. This was a heckuva plot twist for a mere 1988 B-movie, and its rip-roaringly zany execution deserves more accolades & cult appreciation than its received. It took me years to find a used VHS tape of this movie, which was my holy grail of 1997. Discovering this DVD was a dream come true for me.
