Killer Tomatoes Eat France!, was released in 1991 as the third and most recent sequel to Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. Like its predecessor, Killer Tomatoes Strike Back, it was a direct-to-video release.

Because the movie was co-produced with corporate successor 20th Century Fox, (1997 merger), this is the only New World film whose rights are solely owned by 20th Century Fox.
