"EVIL TOONS" -- 20th Anniversary Edition on DVD May 4

Infinity Entertainment Group in Association With Retromedia Entertainment Proudly Presents Evil Toons: 20th Anniversary Edition


First They Undress You, Then They Possess You! -- Cult Classic Animates DVD May 4th

LOS ANGELES - May 1, 2010 - Who Framed Roger Rabbit meets The Evil Dead in the 1990 cult classic Evil Toons: 20th Anniversary Edition, starring the late David Carradine, animating DVD May 4 from Infinity Entertainment Group.

To receive a large amount of money, four hot teenage girls must spend the night in an old haunted house. Soon after arriving, a strange man comes by to deliver an old book full of magic incantations.

Reading the contents aloud, the group accidentally brings a cartoon character (a wolf-like monster) to life which desires the blood of young ladies! In their struggle to survive, the girls do whatever it takes to return the creature back to the book.


Co-starring with Carradine (Kung Fu, Kill Bill: Vol. 1 and 2) are Dick Miller (Gremlins, Tales From the Crypt: Demon Night, The Flash), Arte Johnson (Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In), Monique Gabrielle (Chained Heat, Bachelor Party) and Michelle Bauer (Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers, Voodoo Dollz).

Evil Toons: 20th Anniversary Edition is presented in anamorphic widescreen with an aspect ratio of 16 x 9 and Dolby Digital. Special features include director's commentary track; original trailer; original work-print; special "Making Of" video documentary; original Nite Owl Theater segment; and Evil Toons Suite by Chuck Cirino.

It's definitely not the best one I've ever seen, though it has some humour in it, that I really appreciated. But the actresses seem like they're reading from the script, they don't seem to be understanding what an actor actually does. But they strip and that might be a plus for some.
