Here's your plot, and the basis for my love of the film. Take four young beautiful coeds who are in charge of cleaning a large mansion (that strangely looks identical to the one in sorrority house massacre II and slumber party massacre) and have them find an old book of spells. One of the spells just happens to release a demon into the house, but instead of a disgusting slimy rubber demon we get a cute and crude cartoon demon superimposed on the screen! Talk about the X-rated version of Roger Rabbit! From then there's nothing but stripped girls, bloody deaths, and crude language from a raunchy cartoon demon! Couple this with David Carrodine running around outside and you've got a 90 minute piece of cult horror history.
And the best part to finish off has to be the cast. You will see Kung-Fu and the recent Kill Bill's David Carrodine, known for his late 80's and early 90's "B" film roles as either a pimp, a strip club owner, or some wierdo who hangs out with hot chicks (and this is the role he plays in this movie). The next would be the four girls in this adventure: Monique Gabriel, Suzanne Ager, Madison Stone, and Barbara Dare. If you don't know their names you may know their faces...provided you indulged in adult cinema in the 90's. They're all porno stars! This film does go out of its way to prove this fact as well.Read more ›
Some reviewers complained how the director didn't know where to take this movie/ what to do with it. Personally, I think he knew exactly what he wanted to do with it. However, the film wasn't done well enough for the audience to fully get the director's vision. My bases for the above statement can be found throughout this film. For example, if you listen to the jokes, they sometimes revolve around predicting what could happen in such cliché scenarios. Personally, I feel that the director was intentionally making fun of monster movies/ acting in monster movies, etc. For example the girls (while in the basement at beginning of film) would joke about "now this is when we find the Ouija board."
The director also tried throwing in other types of jokes. For example, in one scene, the girls are screaming, and the nerdy girl's pony tail proceeded to stick straight up into the air.
One of the major problems with this film is that you can't fully tell when/ if the director was trying to create intense/dramatic, if any, scenes. This leads to confusion for the audience on how to view this film.Read more ›
I would recomend this movie to those of you that enjoy b line movies. Evil Toons is very entertaining and it is proof that you don't need a huge budget to make and entertaining movie. Just be advised that you are getting a b line movie, so the acting is not always the best and the effects don't rival Terminator. You have to appreciate this movie for what it is. I recomend it for the mature viewer that enjoys movies that are not Hollywood smashes.
The disc contains a nice looking widescreen picture, however, the sound is mono. The DVD has some interesting bonuses such as a trailer, a 10 minute "behind-the-scenes" commentary with the film's director, Fred Olen Ray, and a funny intro to the movie with the director, his wife, and naked women chained to the wall.
I recommend this DVD to anyone who enjoys nudity, schlock, and a good laugh.

Well, this was something I'd never seen before. The beginning was a bit confusing.Published 5 months ago by anonymous
Live action mixed with cartoons. The live action part of the movie was entertaining enough that there really was no need to have cartoons in it. Anyhow, I liked this movie.Published 9 months ago by Butch
