Attack Of The Killer Tomatoes! (1978)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
After a wave of reports of mysterious attacks involving people and pets being eaten by the traditionally docile fruit, a special government task force is set up to investigate the violent veggies and put a stop to their murderous spree. Included in this crack team are a lieutenant who never goes anywhere without his parachute, an underwater expert who's never out of his scuba gear, and a master of disguise who conceals his appearance by dressing as a black Adolf Hitler.

Attack Of The Killer Tomatoes! Horror Film Trailer 1
"THEME FROM ATTACK OF THE KILLER TOMATOES"
"THE MINDMAKER SONG"
"LOVE THEME FROM ATTACK OF THE KILLER TOMATOES"
- News Announcer: And today the president closed the nation's last remaining submarine base at Groton, Connecticut. When asked why he had made the startling decision the president responded, "Those funny little black ships just keep sinking anyway."
Swan: We have to convince the little housewife out there that the tomato that ate the family pet is not dangerous!
Sam Smith: (he has infiltrated the tomatoes and is eating with them) "Hey, can somebody please pass the ketchup?"
Jim Richardson: Nobody is closer to power then the press secretary for the president. But it is never fully yours, it's dangling in front of you. Mocking your very existence. I WILL NOT BE MOCKED ANY LONGER!
Ted Swan: But he wants us to do that, AND make this appear to be a blessing in disguise? Now that's a challenge. Jim Richardson: The President does tend to expect the impossible... Ted Swan: You're not listening to me Richardson. I said it would be a CHALLENGE. Man was put on this earth to face challenges my boy. Jim Richardson: You can do it?
- The helicopter crash was unintentional. After being pulled from the wreck, Jack Riley and George Wilson ad-libbed the rest of the scene. The crash used up more of the budget than all other aspects of the film combined.
The song "Puberty Love" was performed by Matt Cameron, who would later go on to be the drummer for Soundgarden and Pearl Jam.
The giant ear muffs that the giant tomato at the end was wearing was actually 2 big bright green toilet seat covers.
Shot on Kodak 5247 negative stock - very unusual for a low budget film at the time. Most low budget films were shot on positive stock. The quality of the negative is one reason why many people thought the film cost more to make than it did.
