Revenge of the Red Baron is a 1994 American comedy film starring Mickey Rooney, Tobey Maguire, Laraine Newman, Cliff De Young, produced by Roger Corman and directed by Robert Gordon.[1][2]

Premise[edit]

The Red Baron returns in a toy plane to kill the former World War I flying ace that shot him down.

Reception[edit]

In 2005, Dread Central writer Jon Condit, as part of the site's column highlighting obscure films, panned the film and questioned the intention of producer Roger Corman, noting that it contained elements of horror, comedy and family films, but it does not consistently mix any of its genre elements:

The plot sounds straight out of a horror film, but the way it plays out – despite how nearly every joke falls flat with a resounding “thud” – is clearly meant to be humorous, and yet it’s often cartoonish nature brings to mind a direct-to-video family film, albeit one with more electrocutions, (bloodless) shooting deaths, and gratuitous obscenities than that genre is used to.[3]
