Gilbert Speaks on “Attack of the Killer Donuts”

21 Apr


I am a connoisseur of ridiculous movies, and if they’re bad, I’ll watch them. I do my own version of Mystery Science Theatre 3000 on these films, sans the robots. I guess this love for senseless movies comes from my dad. I thought I’d seen it all after watching “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes” but there is always something much worse around the bend. Grab yourself a glazed donut, and meet me after the jump for my review of “Attack of the Killer Donuts”


The film, “Attack of the Killer Donuts” was directed by Scott Wheeler, and is about a mad scientist working on a formula to reanimate dead things. Professor Luther’s (Michael Swan) experiment is accidently dumped into the frying station of the filthiest donut shop in Los Angeles when he picks up his laptop from his nephew. It isn’t long before the donuts begin to attack the customers who buy the donuts.


While police officers Officer Hammerstein (Fredrick Burns) and Officer Rogers (C. Thomas Howell) search for an escaped convict, now a zombie after eating a donut, the young employees of Dandy Donuts, Johnny (Justin Ray), Michelle (Kayla Compton), and Howard (Ben Heyman) try to take down the killer donuts before they take over the city.


The film is funny, but in a brain-numbing sort of way. It isn’t as funny as my favorite B movie, “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes” but it does have its moments.


Both films are going into my Granny’s Insomnia Theatre Collection because I respect anyone that has the balls to purposely create such bad films.
