The tongue comes face to face with Candy's enemies and punishes each one accordingly. With Candy's inability to stop the tongue's behavior, Johnny's love for Candy is the only thing that can ultimately destroy the Killer Tongue.« less
"I once got a free Laserdisc of that film and I'll have to advise you not to buy this pile of rubbish. If you think this might be interesting because of Englund or Mindy Clark, forget it! This so called "movie" tries to be a prison drama, monster film and "Priscilla, Queen of The Desert" all rolled into one. Needless to say, it doesn't work - it's neither funny nor scary, just incredibly boring..."

"If you would like to watch a very strange horror movie,this one is then a nice choice.When it comes to the plot,the movie is something like this : A couple ( Melinda Clarke & her beau) and two other guys pull off a robbery.In the middle of the desert,on a dusty unpaved road,the mastermind of the crime (Melinda's boyfriend) decides to betray the two cohorts with the aid of his beloved.Bad for them.They got two deadly enemies,who later on will do everything to get even with the couple.The police discover who planned the robbery and arrest him.Melinda,then,not to be caught,hides in a convent for four years,which is the amount of time the love of her life stays in jail whose warden is fruity nutty but somehow funny and mean (Robert "Freddy Krueger" Englund).When Melinda is about to meet her boyfriend who is going to be released from prison in 4 days,a series of unbelievable incidents,accidents and events happen to them,as well as to the other characters.An outer space creature possesses Melinda's beautiful body,mind,face,hair(!) and tongue.Her four poodles also change and become her and the creature's bodyguards : THEY TURN INTO A HOMO,2 DRAG QUEENS and a TRANSVESTITE ! The effects are nice (produced by BOB "HELLRAISER PTs.1,2,3 & 4" KEEN),the producer is Christopher Figg (HELLRAISER PTs 1,2,3 & 4) and DOUG "PINHEAD-HELLRAISER" BRADLEY takes part in it.It's a very weird but original flick.I recommend you watch it if you a real horror movie lover.If not do not dare to watch it.You may not enjoy it or have the guts to get a kick out of it."
Bizarre beyond belief

"Although all the other reviews of this title are fair and honest, nothing anyone can say will prepare you for the bizarre-o fest that is "Killer Tongue." A worthy companion to "Brain Damage" and "Basket Case."
Fair warning to those who care about such things...the video transfer on this DVD is simply awful. It's clearly an old recycled VHS transfer with nothing done to clean it up. Scene composition is severely compromised and the image is fuzzy and soft throughout. Sound is OK, but no better than VHS Hi-Fi. There are absolutely NO extras beyond a handful of trailers for other films also available from Ardustry. In short, this DVD issue is sadly lacking, but if you're a fan of the flick it will probably do just fine until something better comes along (if ever)."

"Low budget movies are a dime a dozen, but once in a while we find a gem. Found one in this movie, yes its a strange one, but the director took a stange direction with this one and it works. Makes a low budget movie feel like a almost regular weird movie. Just a bit too much of one character (the warden) but the movie flows pretty good... hey, now that's quite a tongue on that lady. The movie falls into the: Must be seen once Category."

"Looking at the video box, you might think this is going to be another spoof of those silly 1950's horror films involving radiation poisoned giant animals. You are so wrong.In a nutshell, a meteor crashes to earth and a chunk is ingested by a former nun waiting for her boyfriend to be released from prison. Her tongue grows to about ten feet long, and eventually talks to her. Hijinks of the most offensive order ensue.This is such an off the wall surreal nightmare that you must see it to believe it. So many scenes can only be mentioned by their generic names but watch out for the port-a-potty scene, the bathtub scene, the confessional scene, and the super glue scene.This somehow escaped with an (R) rating. It has a lot of material that kids should not see, but this is also one of the funniest films out there. My one small complaint is that I could not get this in letterbox version, on the TV screen it really suffers. Robert Englund, as the prison director, gives a better performance here than in all the "A Nightmare on Elm Street" films combined. He shows that his acting genius does not have to include fright makeup, and he should be allowed to do more of these over the top horror comedies. The entire cast looks like they were having a lot of fun here, and it rubs off on the viewer in the right mood. Rent it now!This is (R) for strong physical violence, gun violence, sexual violence, strong gore, strong profanity, some male nudity, sexual content, strong sexual references, and strong adult situations."
