Terror Toons – 2001 – United States

While her parents are away on vacation, a teenage girl watches a Terror Toons DVD she received mysteriously in the mail. The DVD (directed by “The Devil”) depicts the violent cartoon escapades of Dr. Carnage (a goblin-like surgeon) and Max Assassin (his grinning purple gorilla). The girl is hypnotized by the cartoon’s psychedelic imagery, and Dr. Carnage and Max Assassin emerge from the television and kill her. In the same house, the girl’s teenage sister and her friends are having a party. They drink wine coolers and play “Strip Ouija” (which is exactly what you think it is). Dr. Carnage and Max Assassin run amok, killing the teens with enormous cartoonish tools and weapons (i.e. a giant pizza cutter). Eventually, one girl is inexplicably transported to Hell. She confronts Satan and becomes a superhero through the limitless power of imagination. She defeats Dr. Carnage and Max Assassin and then has a nervous breakdown because all of her friends are dead.

Terror Toons uses computer animation and old-fashioned special effects to create its gory cartoon world. Live actors are mixed with animated characters and digital effects. There are wacky costumes, exaggerated sets (decorated with lava lamps), zany sound effects, circus-like music, slapstick gags, lots of blood and slime, and a even a female impersonator. The result combines elements of teen slasher films and Looney Tunes. Terror Toons’ weird style works pretty well which is surprising considering the movie’s limited budget.

Rating: 6/10 Shrunken Heads. The “teenagers” in Terror Toons are way too old. One is played by porn actress Lizzie Borden.
