Editorial Reviews

Four sexy coeds take on a weekend job cleaning a haunted house with horrific results in the 1990 cult classic, EVIL TOONS. It seems the ghost of a previous tenant needs some help ridding himself of a murderous cartoon that has escaped from an ancient book. Starring a spectacular B-Movie cast that includes David Carradine (Kung Fu, Kill Bill, Death Race 2000), Arte Johnson (Laugh-In), Dick Miller (Gremlins), Monique Gabrielle (Bachelor Party) and Michelle Bauer (Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers) and directed by cult favorite Fred Olen Ray. This special edition features a ton of extras including a 'Making Of' Documentary and a revealing directors commentary track recorded exclusively for this 20th Anniversary Edition.

Just like the other reviewers, I've got to say the first time I saw this bit of "B" movie perfection was late night on The Movie Channel. Even at that time this movie was hacked to pieces by the channel that was airing it! However there are so many reasons why anyone who loves cult horror films must own this!

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.

First of all yes, it's a bad movie, bad acting, bad special effect, etc. The only reason why I bought this film was because I thought most of the movie would show the cartoon demon...it did not. The demon only appeared as his cartoon self for about a minute or two. However, throughout the rest of the film he runs around disguised as his first female victim. He (now a she) runs around killing others with breasts popping out of her open shirt...what????? I was disappointed. If the movie would have contained more shots of the cartoon demon I would have given this film six stars...despite how bad it was.
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.

Evil Toons is an entertaining b line movie by Fred Olen Ray. The plot involves four girls hired to clean an old house for its new owners. What the girls don't realize is that the house has a long history of strange and evil happenings. Their first night there a stranger delivers a package to them. They open it to find a strange book with explicit drawings and strange warnings in it. The girls end up releasing an animated beast that has a propensity to kill and tear the cloths off its victims. The movie is both funny and a little bit scarey, but it is definitely entertaining.
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.

I had first accidentally stumbled upon this movie several years ago late one night on cable t.v. Within an instint, I fell in love with the atrocious acting, worse dialog, and sleazy nudity. EVIL TOONS is truly, as far as I'm concerned, a modern classic in cult/trash cinema. Thus, it seemed only appropriate to own this title on DVD.
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.
