The Attack of the.......




More photos available that are truly worthwhile to see
at Peterson's Donut Corner in Escondido, CA
I drove by this corner nearly every day on my way to teaching; I did not stop.
 In a July 2018 post, Who comes up with this stuff, my husband will watch any movie that has a bad plot, weak writing, unknown actors, poor filming, and some sort of monster.  In one of a previous posts, it was mutant alligators
But that word could be substituted with MUTANT anacondas, dinosaurs, spiders, worms (Tremors..the first one was good; others not so much), ants, or any other species that could be creepy.


Yesterday, another bad movie appeared: 
The Attack of the Killer Donuts.

Donuts/doughnuts should never have this moniker. Yes, donuts are bad for us.*  Fried and covered with some sort of sweet stuff, donuts are bad for us and technically could be blamed as a part of a diet that could really add to health problems.  But, oh yes, they are good.



This has everything a bad movie should have, including a scantily clad  girl scampering to get away from the donuts.  It has experienced actor C. Thomas Howell as the "name" that is supposed to give the movie some credit.

In the past history of "Attack of the....." movies, here are some titles:

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, 

Attack of the Clones (Star Wars), 

Attack of the Dead Men (which is a serious accounting of WW1 German poisonous gases), 

Attack of the 50 ft. woman, and

Attack of the Titans, an anime, a Japanese animation which is actually pretty good). 

There are others that I cannot find, but this title is too good to waste. It could be argued that "Godzilla Attacks" could qualify.

These movies appeal to my husband and surely other men who like to ridicule them but continue to watch them. As my husband watches these works of art, I write; head phones are a marvelous invention.

*Okay, they are bad for us, but once now and then? I leave that up to you.

# Scantily clad girl. Does she survive?  Hmm.

I hope this photo can be seen.


This was as large as my head. My gr-daughters shared this with me.
I don't like apple fritters--heartburn.

Photo of Peterson's Donut Corner - Escondido, CA, United States. Yessss. The glazed twist! Super fluffy. And so very large.
Someone, not me, will eat all of this.
Now, I am certain that you will go on line to find this classic movie. Enjoy.

This is a repost of Sept. 2018, with edits.

  1. Imagine being an actor and getting to be in Attack of the Killer Donuts. That sounds like a lot of fun! 😂

    1. Oh boy. The money was better than working at McDonald's and helps being established as an actor.

  2. There sure are plenty of bad movies to go around!

  3. OK I had to Google it as it sounded so unreal. Yep it exists. Mercy are we gullible. Agree we could die by eating too many but being eaten by them? Who thinks of this?

    1. Some guys smoking weed in their mom's basement probably dreamed this up.

  4. I also checked it out on the internet. I wonder who came up with all these movies, titles, plots, and scantily clad women. I'm amazed they even sold 50 tickets to these films, especially the one with the killer doughnuts.

    1. They probably had a short run, altho the time period of early 60s might have had something to do with them.

  5. Attack of the Killer Donuts sounds vaguely familiar. Perhaps it's the Attack of... part. I think I was dragged to Killer Tomatoes as a child. Not my kind of movie.

    1. I think the Killer Tomatoes was the first one I saw back around 1980.

  6. Yep, those are boy and men movies for certain. I am not a fan of donuts, never did like them. Then I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease and now I'd like to have one. Figures huh?

    1. Being limited like that definitely increases the yearning.

  8. Now I'm wondering if our husbands aren't related! I definitely need to buy me some headphones.

  9. There is something to be said about horror movies. Men seem to be more partial to them but I know of at least one woman who likes them.

    Attack of the Killer Donuts might be a bit too silly, even for this genre.

    1. I used to pay attention to them, but they were so formulaic. There would always be a young mindless blond girl in a bikini running away from whatever.

  10. I am sure I have never seen a move that started with "The attack Of..." But I sure do like donuts, although I seldom eat one. I have eaten a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts! Love 'em..

    Now quit trying to skeer me!
    Love ya

    1. My gr-daughters love those donuts. A dozen donuts will last maybe 20 minutes at their house!

  11. Not for me.
    And fortunately, not for himself (or not while I am awake anyway).
    I don't think I have eaten a donut in years. And haven't missed them. Krispy Kreme came to my city a few years ago. Himself bought one, had a bite, and binned it.
    The franchise lasted here about six months.

    1. The Attack of the Anaconda/Alligator is particular good.

  13. Why am I tempted to say "Only in America?" That's probably not fair, so I guess, it's just how guys are. The things they like to watch,how can we ever understand.

  14. Your husband has good taste, clearly. :) I love a good "bad" movie haha. In fact I did a post about Tremors once lampooning it- it was super fun. :) I'm tempted to check this one out. Although my Krispy Kremes better not develop teeth or I'll be seriously bummed.

    Oh and I've always been intrigued by the idea of Killer Tomatoes!

    1. You, then, are a man of discerning taste.

      For all its ridiculousness, Tremors#1 was fun. Kevin Bacon was perfect. Do not watch Tremors in northern snows.

  15. How about Attack of the Mutants? That should go over well. How is that girl running in those shoes??
    I could eat that giant glazed twist. It might take me a few days and then I would never want another, and that's a good thing right? One giant glazed twist per lifetime?

    1. Try splitting it with a few people. Try the jelly filled.

  16. Dear Susan, I've never seen one of these "attack" movies and so my education is poorly lacking. I did see a movie at the AMC theater on Wednesday that I thought was an absolute waste of money. I never would have gone to it, but I was treating a friend to lunch and movie for her birthday and she wanted something happy. So we went and I said nothing, but oh, was I biting my tongue!!! Peace.

  17. Now you've made me want an apple fritter. No, i don't watch the movies, just laugh at the funny titles.

    1. The part of the movies I like are when the blond young woman racing though the forest, wearing a bikini and lacking any common sense/intelligence.

  18. lmao well someone scored a easy payday at least. I don't think I could sit through a full movie like them.

  19. Is that photo of the girl running from "The Attack of the Killer Donuts". Or is the girl in the film fat and rotund because of the donuts she ate? If it's the slim girl I'll look out for the film. Sounds good to me. Do the donuts squirt red raspberry juice as blood everywhere? Brilliant! Are the donuts low-calories? We need more information on this film. Can it be watched whilst eating donuts? Do they have a version with killer pizzas?

    God bless.

    1. Killer pizza? Oh, I can picture pepperoni as a protagonist. Raspberry jelly. Great thought.

  20. Did you realize there's a 12 word sentence you can speak to your crush... that will trigger intense feelings of love and instinctual appeal to you deep within his heart?

    Because hidden in these 12 words is a "secret signal" that triggers a man's impulse to love, please and protect you with his entire heart...

    =====> 12 Words Who Trigger A Man's Desire Impulse

    This impulse is so hardwired into a man's brain that it will drive him to try better than ever before to build your relationship stronger.

    Matter of fact, triggering this powerful impulse is so mandatory to getting the best possible relationship with your man that as soon as you send your man a "Secret Signal"...

    ...You'll immediately find him open his heart and soul to you in a way he never expressed before and he will identify you as the only woman in the galaxy who has ever truly fascinated him.
