Editorial Reviews

The razor-toothed tomatoes return in "Killer Tomatoes Eat France," affectionately known as Part IV of the Tomatoes Trilogy. This time they've developed an appetite for dining a' la Francaise! Filmed in France, the juicy plot unfolds as the evil professor Gangreen (John Astin) and his bungling henchman Igor (Steve Lundquist) create a new strain of tomatoes to devour the country. Only a young American tourist claiming to be Michael J. Fox (Marc Price, Skippy from "Family Ties") and his girlfriend (former Miss Universe, Angela Visser), who's one hot tomato herself, can stop them!

The battle rages from the dungeon of France's newest tourist attraction, "Igor's Really Big Castle," to a Ben Hur-style car chase around the Arc de Triomphe and a heavy metal rock riot at the Louvre.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Who's that Ringing in the Seine?" October 2, 2005
By Catman
Format:DVD
The near equal of "Return of the Killer Tomato" and surprisingly good if you like this sort of humor. Gangreen, as a foreign exchange prisoner, is jailed in a French prison where he's found a book containing a prophesy that he hopes to use to his advantage to rule France and then the world. As luck would have it, Gangreen's assistant Igor, played by Steve Lundquist, is a dead ringer for the future king pictured in the book. The true future king of France ("No wonder my last name is Seventeenth"), also played by Steve Lundquist, knows nothing of the prophesy and the story revolves around whether or not the impostor will be discovered in time.

Michael, who's touring France, shanks mare, and Marie, a beautiful French country girl, are the film's romantic interest and also the pair who hope to squash Gangreen's plans of world conquest. Angela Visser, former Miss Universe, plays Marie and is surprisingly good in the role not to mention cute as a bug. The scene where Michael and Marie are sharing dinner with her parents is a riot!

The killer tomatoes themselves now have facial features, fangs and all, which I thought detracted a little from the whimsical absurdity of the concept which, after all, is a good part of the Tomato series' appeal.

Off beat (way off!) satirical humor with sight & sound gags that don't let up make these films work. I don't mean to sound like a prude but the squeaky-clean language and the near total lack of sexual innuendo is a refreshing departure from most current films.

I'm a fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great silly fun November 7, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
First came Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, a low budget musical spoof of monster movies in which giant tomatoes go on a rampage and eat people, a good-natured and amusing small gem. Years later came three sequels, in which John Astin is introduced as the mad scientist who created the tomatoes and wants to rule the world. These films are slicker than the rough around the edges original, but just as much genial fun. I should warn you that my tolerance for silliness is near limitless, but I love John Astin and I loved these movies. By the way, for one season there was a Saturday morning cartoon with Astin and his tomatoes. Bless him, the dedicated mad scientist never gives up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as terrible as the 3rd one October 23, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The first two are fantastic. The third one is slightly less fun than filling your underwear with starving badgers. This one doesn't live up to the legend that the first two established, but it is so much better than the third.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Killer Tomato is A Smash Hit" March 24, 2006
Format:VHS Tape
I bought this as a joke for my sister.....who is interested in French culture. We have always joked about the Killer Tomatoe Series and It was the perfect "FUN" experience for her birthday.

Of course the film is campy, silly, weird and amusing....Just what we were looking for in crazy, light, entertainment..

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the 3 sequels January 22, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
A hot French babe, WWI reinactments, MEGA-tomato, and an evil tomato concert (complete with a pirate tomato playing a B.C. Rich snakeskin Ironbird). The laughs are fast and furious, ala - 'I thought a threesome was when you used both hands!!'. Fuzzy tomato is back, but not as aggravating as usual. The King of France is cool too in his double role as GangGreen's sidekick. But man that French babe, what a tart.

This film is the fourth in the Tomato trilogy. The original title is "Les Tomats Français Munch Munch", with La musique mucho dinero.

Yep all our favorite bad guys are back as Professor Gangreen finds a prophecy that will help him rule the world. All he has to do is make Igor (Steve Lundquist) into Louis The XXVII, the king of France.

Of course standing in his was, is our lovable FT (Fuzzy Tomato who is famous by now), Michael J. Fox ... oops Marc Price our unlikely hero, and to new tomato on the block, Marie "the French girl" (Angela Visser). Marie reminds us that this film is rated PG.

While we are waiting the tough of war of power and the war from Guatemala over the French McEnroe Line, one has to wonder if the Professors diabolical scheme will bear fruit, especially tomatoes.

Be prepared for every French cliché. And just who is the man in the mask?

Just when you think it is over be sure to read the credits closely.

Killer Tomatoes Strike Back

5.0 out of 5 stars I Eat London, I Eat France... March 3, 2014
Format:DVD
Fuzzy Tomato has a face in this one. And sings.
There. I've gotten the bad out of the way. Now for the good. Based off the Killer Tomato cartoon, itself based off Return of the Killer Tomatoes, (and even featuring a couple of the toys based on the show, see if you can spot them) this forth entry allows the film series to go out on a high note. If you enjoyed the first two movies, you'll love this one as well. This is the movie promised at the end of Return ("See you in France!"), why they went ahead with the inferior Strikes Back instead is beyond me. This is also perhaps the most easily accesable film to show the non-fan, as you don't have to know much about the first three to enjoy it and it's not as "out there" as the first film. I love the individual faces of the main tomatoes in this movie, giving the veggies of doom a sense of character lacking in other entries. The humor is spot on, John Astin gives his best performance as Gangrene and the resulting movie sparkles with wit and laughs. If you enjoy Killer Tomatoes at all, if you even just smirk at the title, you owe it to yourself to watch Killer Tomatoes Eat France.
