A scientist known as Uncle Luther, injects a dead rodent with a chemical that brings the rodent to life. But the rodent attacks the scientist and escapes. When Uncle Luther’s nephew retrieves a laptop for his work at a donut shop, Uncle Luther tries to retrieve it. Upon arrival, Uncle Luther gets in a fight with the donut shop owner who tells Luther to leave. While having this brawl, the chemical, which is in Luther’s coat pocket, falls into the deep fryer contaminating all the donuts. As a result, the donuts come to life and start killing people.
The Gore Factor
The most disturbing scene is when an old woman dresses up in lingerie and gives a box of donuts a lap dance. Other than that,the attack scenes from the “killer donuts” are comical as the killer donuts are mainly CGI. The donuts also cause people to vomit and have big bowel movements. The film focuses more on toilet humor rather than gore scenes.
The Grave Review
Attack of the Killer Donuts (2017) is one of those films where you just ask yourself, why? Some movies should not be made and this is one of them. There are a number of aspects to this film which give it a poor rating.
The characters in this film do not feel genuine at all. Oddly, the mother of Johnny (Justin Ray), looks the same age as her son and is dressed in a promiscuous way. More importantly, the film does not take the time to develop any of the characters. The main character, Johnny, was so oblivious to everything, the film felt forced and unrealistic.
It is difficult to say how terrible the acting and dialogue is. So I will leave the opinion to the viewer to decide. All I will say is that Attack of the Killer Donuts is not recommended.
For the foregoing reasons, Grave Reviews gives Attack of the Killer Donuts (2017), one-half graves out of five graves.
