The razor-toothed tomatoes return in "Killer Tomatoes Eat France," affectionately known as Part IV of the Tomatoes Trilogy. This time they've developed an appetite for dining a' la Francaise! Filmed in France, the juicy plot unfolds as the evil professor Gangreen (John Astin) and his bungling henchman Igor (Steve Lundquist) create a new strain of tomatoes to devour the country. Only a young American tourist claiming to be Michael J. Fox (Marc Price, Skippy from "Family Ties") and his girlfriend (former Miss Universe, Angela Visser), who's one hot tomato herself, can stop them!

Those vicious Vegetables of Doom bounce back for another go at world domination in this Third installment of the comedy classic "Killer Tomato" series. Tomato mastermind Mortimer Gangreen (The Addams Family's John Astin has concocted a wacky scheme to plunder the planet. Disguised as Jeronahew, the ultimate talk show superstar, he plans to replace "couch potatoes" with "rad tomatoes" --creating a humungous Tomatocracy! (Whatever that is).

Fortunately for us human types, detective Lance Boyle (Rick Rockwell) and voluptuous Tomatologist Kennedi Johnson (Crystal Carson) have other ideas¿and thus begins a wildly improbable (and totally hilarious) adventure that culminates at the awesome Temple of Food - where Kennedi is about to become a bacon, lettuce and human sandwich!

Movie Picture

From X-Files Producer Chris Carter comes the final chapter of Millennium. With his unique ability to see into the minds of killers, profiler Frank Black left the FBI to join the Millennium Group, a covert team of ex-law enforcement experts battling the growing forces of evil in the world—or so he thought. For when a deadly viral outbreak swept across the country infecting thousands of people and killing his wife, Frank discovered it was all part of a secret plot engineered by the Group. Now, disillusioned and outraged, Frank returns to the FBI determined to expose the Millennium Group. But protecting his job and his daughter, who Frank fears shares his gift, is no easy task when there are group members who believe that if he is not on their side, there is no reason he should be allowed to keep using his gift against them.
