Narrowly escaping the guillotine thanks to the intervention of the evil tomatoes, Professor Gangreen (John Astin) sets up shop with Igor in a medieval castle/tourist attraction. A young American tourist, embarrassed at starring in a killer tomatoes movie, pretends to be Michael J. Fox (thus landing a comely French girlfriend), and winds up fighting against the evil doctor and his vegetables. (Or are tomatoes a fruit?)
There are some chuckles to be had in the opening credits, but th…t’s pretty much the high point as far as the humour goes. Postmodern riffing raises a smile here and there, but this is more tired silliness of the lowest common denominator type.
Though there is some distortion on the dialogue, overall it sounds a heck of a lot better than that on the other tomatoes release. The surround elements are rather low key, but they are present enough for a passing grade.
This looks even more like a VHS tape than Killer Tomatoes Strike Back. The picture is full screen, there is grain, and the colours are variable, going from strong to washed out, with skin tones being the most inconsistent. The blacks, however, are fine.
Some trailers. The menu is basic.
Okay people, the joke is over.
