Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, a low-budget indie production made by a group of young San Diego filmmakers, isn’t even worthy of sarcasm. Plot, if it can be called that, concerns sudden growth spurt of tomatoes and their rampage.
Only saving grace is the satire pic’s opening titles, a clever lampoon of theatre trailers and advertising pitches, including a mid-credit title card that boasts, ‘This space for rent’. There’s also a tongue-in-cheek parody of disaster pic music, sung in a deep basso voice, but that’s over in about two minutes. Thereafter it’s all downhill, rapidly.
