TERROR TOONS (2002 — R)
Rated R for violence/gore and some nudity.
Directed by Joe Castro.
Written by Rudy Balli.
The cast includes: Beverly Lynne, Lizzie Borden, Kerry Liu, Fernando Padilla, Brandon Reininger, and Jack Roberts.
Terror Toons, starring porn icon Lizzie Borden and Beverly Lynne, has a bad porn feel to it, only without the titillating sex and nudity. And cohesive plot.
Candy and Cindy are sisters left home for the night when their dad and "mom" leave for a wedding. Cindy receives a DVD called Terror Toons, which unleashes supposed cartoon characters Dr. Carnage and Max Assassin.
I'll give Beverly Lynne and Kelly Liu credit, they at least try to do a halfway decent job, but they are let down by their director and the special effects department. Joe Castro doesn't so much film as he just happens to keep a camera in the room as his story unfolds. The special effects would be laughable if they weren't so nauseating...not nauseating in the sense of "ooh, brains" but in the sense of "ooh, special effects goop."
It took one person to come up with the story, and three to come up with the script. What exactly took three people? The tired cartoon characters running through doors in a hallway? The cop who likes donuts? Strip Ouija?
This is a horrible, hateful little movie that will make you wonder about humanity's capacity to come together and put together something so unbelievably awful. Stay away from it.
