ATTACK OF THE KILLER TOMATOES: SPECIAL COLLECTOR’S EDITION (BLU-RAY REVIEW)
By Tim Salmons
Jan 31, 2018

An unlikely candidate for a franchise, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, as goofy as it is, spawned three sequels, a cartoon series, a video game, and a toy line during the 1980s and 1990s. Long-since dormant, it’s wild to think that at one time an amateur spoof movie with a budget of less than $100,000 had the potential for other things. Shepherded by director John DeBello and writers and producers Stephen Peace and Costa Dillon, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes isn’t necessarily a film that you’d try and defend as some kind of a masterpiece that’s been misunderstood. No, even its creators know exactly what it is, but they, like many other people, embrace it and continue to wave its flag nearly 40 years after its initial release. Read More

“There’s probably a joke in Trump buying three billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri,” Vilanch said, “because that’s all he does is publicize himself. So it seems to me you have a nice, clean shot on the ninth hole.”

He doesn’t have to sweat polishing the riff on best-picture nominee “Three Billboards.” While he’s crafted one-liners for hosts and presenters for 23 Oscar shows, he’ll be watching comfortably at home and with Koosh balls at the ready. Read More
