Watch out. Killer donuts are on the loose in “Attack of the Killer Donuts”.
The trailer for “Attack of the Killer Donuts” is just hilarious. It reminds me a lot of “The Gingerdead Man”. The soul of a convicted killer gets inside of a gingerbread man. You know what that means. This gingerbread cookie wrecks havoc. Charles Band’s Comedy-Horror also spawned two sequels, “The Gingerdead Man 2: Passion of the Crust” and “The Gingerdead Man 3: Saturday Night Cleaver”.
Let’s not forget about “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes”. 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 setup to investigate the violent veggies and put a stop to their murderous spree. Can you guess what that “docile fruit” is? You’ve guessed right. Tomatoes.
“Attack of the Killer Donuts” goes off the tagline:
“We’ve eaten them for years, now it’s their turn!”
Catchy tagline, right? When I read the tagline and watched the trailer, I thought to myself, sarcastically; “I’d rather they just give me diabetes. Not eat me.” Can you imagine being eaten by killer donuts? I couldn’t even imagine being eaten by killer tomatoes. Or being killed by a gingerbread man, for that matter. I mean, who comes up with this stuff? Well…I know who comes up with these ideas. That was not a literal question.
However, on a serious note, cheesy, low-budget films, such as “Attack of the Killer Donuts”, usually turn into awesome cult sensations. Although most are filmed very poorly and have poor acting, low-budget film directors and producers prove that you don’t need millions of dollars and state-of-the-art technology equipment to make a decent film. A lot of these films are very good when you don’t think about the low-budget quality aspect of it and just focus on the film and the story-line itself.
“The Puppet Master” franchise is a prime example. Who doesn’t like the thought of puppets coming to life and turning into killers? What’s more; I think a lot of people can say that any movie that has to do with killer puppets, dolls, and toys are very creepy. “Night of the Creeps” is another prime example. Alien brain parasites turning people into zombies! Zombies will always have their cult following.
You really can’t lose with a zombie flick. And, nowadays, directors are becoming more and more creative with the zombie franchise. A good “Zombie versus” flick is solid, no matter how low-budget its. Let’s not forget about clowns! Clowns fall under the creep factor of dolls. And, nowadays, clowns are becoming even more frightening and brutal. Just take a look at the more colorful and playful “Killer Klowns from Outer Space” and compare it to Jon Watts’ more dark and sinister “Clown”. Quite an evolution in the clown arena I’d say.
Directing “Attack of the Killer Donuts” is Scott Wheeler (Xena: Warrior Princess”, “Scary Movie 2”, “Frailty”). Writing the script is Nathan Dolton, Chris De Christopher (“Parachonda”, “Hybrids”), and Rafael Diaz-Wagner (“Ninja Bitch Killer”).
