On January 23rd, ATTACK OF THE KILLER TOMATOES will Beat You, Bash You, Squish You, and Mash You in HD!


I saw ATTACK OF THE KILLER TOMATOES on VHS at a very young age, and I loved it! While a lot of the humor flew over my head, I still thought it was hysterical. I became an instant fan of Lt. Wilbur Finletter (), the brave (and clueless) leader of the "Tomato Task Force" who always brandishes a sword and drags a parachute on the ground behind him!

And as a person who used to watch the Saturday morning cartoon religiously, and owns all four films on DVD, I gotta say that this is truly exciting news! Oh yes Vault Dwellers, it is most certainly time for an upgrade!

Synopsis: UFOs! Bigfoot! Communists! The government has swiftly dealt with many a crisis... But can it survive the diabolical ATTACK OF THE KILLER TOMATOES? Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the supermarket, you're face to face with terror so bold, so frightening it has never been seen on-screen before or since (not until the sequels, anyway).

After a series of bizarre and increasingly horrific attacks from pulpy, red, seeded fruit, Mason Dixon (David Miller) finds himself leading a ''crack'' team of specialists to save the planet. But will they be quick enough to save everyone? To save YOU?!

You can't run! You can't swim! There's nowhere to hide! THE KILLER TOMATOES ARE EVERYWHERE!
