The voters have spoken, and they’re voting for the “classics”: 1978’s Attack Of The Killer Tomatoes—a cautionary tale of what happens when the ketchup industry goes criminally unregulated—will close out the Milwaukee Public Museum’s Sci-Fi Film Fest. The film, which was voted the “Biggest Sci-Fi Turkey Of All Time” by Milwaukee film buffs who still dig Troma-esque entertainment, will screen Saturday, November 29 in the museum’s Dome Theater, and will be “pardoned” by MPM president and CEO Dennis Kois. The news follows Milwaukee Record’s plea for the city to vote for The Happening, a movie that’s unintentionally bad. But if proto-Sharknado flicks about killer tomatoes are your thing, have at it. At least it’s not the cartoon.

The remaining fest films are below. All films screen at 6:30 p.m, with pre-show entertainment beginning at 6 p.m. Tickets are $5, and can be purchased here.
