I gotta hand it to these guys, this is definitely one of the most interesting low budget horror films I’ve seen in a while. Mind you, it isn’t the greatest thing on the planet, but I have to give the filmmakers an E for effort for trying to make something unique.
In “Terror Toons”, a couple of teenage girls (played by twenty somethings) are left unsupervised at home with a little girl (again played by a twenty something with big, fake boobs and skimpy lingerie). The teens decide to call up a couple of guys to come over so that they can drink a wine cooler each and argue about whether to play strip poker or jackass around with a ouija board. Ugh.
Fortunately, the buxom little girl in the house has locked herself in her room with a DVD called “Terror Toons” featuring a weird, psychedelic blend of live action creatures, blue screen effects and computer animation depicting scenes of gory mayhem. She watches as Dr. Carnage and his overgrown monkey, Max Assassin, chase their victims about a “Pee Wee’s Playhouse” looking world. But it isn’t long before they tire of their boob tube existence and decide to climb out into the real world. Didn’t see that one comin’ did ya?
Meanwhile, back on the ranch, our dickheaded teens have decided to play a game of strip ouija…how that’s really supposed to work, I’m still not sure, but there it is. At least we’re getting down to some nudity, right? WRONG! We have two good-looking girls sitting there with two slobbering guys, cheering them on to take off more…and there isn’t a single shred of goddamn nudity! Jesus Christ…
Anyways, Dr. Carnage and Max Assassin wind up taking over the house, turning it into a gory playland and wiping out everyone within.
Trippers would do well to check this one out as the world of Dr. Carnage and Max Assassin is truly mindbending and that’s where I have to give the filmmakers credit. Gotta give ‘em credit for the gore too. The gore effects in this film are surprisingly good. When not focusing on the moronic and terribly acted characters, “Terror Toons” has the feeling of a haunted maze at Knott’s Scary Farm or any of your other fine Halloween attractions. Definitely worth a look, especially if you’re on…you know…the dope.
