This week’s Blu-ray and DVD releases include Return of the Killer Tomatoes (Special Edition), and Forgotten Tales [Blu-ray] horror anthology. You can view the complete list of this week’s horror releases below.
Return of the Killer Tomatoes (Special Edition) [Blu-ray]
Starring: George Clooney, John Astin, Anthony Starke
Synopsis: THE VEGETABLES OF DOOM!
The killer tomatoes are back! But this time around, they re going to have to contend with late 80s George Clooney and his wicked mullet… Is it a fruit? Is it a vegetable? Nope, it s Return of the Killer Tomatoes!
Ten years on from the Great Tomato War, mankind lives in fear of another uprising by the waxy red menace. Meanwhile, Professor Gangreen played with gusto by the legendary John Astin from TV s The Addams Family sets out to pursue his own evil ends by creating a burgeoning army of tomato militia men (who, somewhat conveniently, look just like regular men).
Following on from the 1978 cult classic Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, Return of the Killer Tomatoes came armed with a healthy sense of its own ridiculousness and would expand upon a franchise that now comprises four films, two TV series and a video game. So what are you waiting for? Make Return of the Killer Tomatoes one of your five-a-day now!
