Shakespeare’s Shitstorm (2020) | Directed by Lloyd Kaufman
The opioid epidemic is destroying America. Legendary director Lloyd Kaufman celebrates Troma’s 45th year and his 50th year making movies, by taking on Big Pharma, addiction, and the intolerance of social media in Shakespeare’s Shitstorm. This irreverent musical adaptation of The Tempest is ripe with bawdy couplets, Hieronymus Boschian images of excess and unrefined iambic pentameter.
Shakepeare’s Shitstorm marks the most ambitious project in Troma’s 45 year history. Working with one of Hollywood’s best special effects companies, Troma brings a whole new experience to their stylized brand. Having a bigger budget also brought about larger scale on-location filming in Albania (a first for narrative feature films in the country) as well as a celestial orchestral score from Portugal, and a little help from the Bard. Shakespeare has never been this raw and unfiltered.
Mutant Blast (2018) | Directed by Fernando Alle
After a scientific experiment goes horribly wrong and the world turns into a zombie apocalypse, a man with superhuman strength, a ferocious, fearless female soldier, and a slacker with mean hangover must band together as the human race’s only hope for survival in a world that’s about to become a nuclear wasteland! Fernando Alle’s debut feature length film, Mutant Blast, which dances the line between comedy and horror, is one of the most exciting and wildest films Troma has ever released!
Slashening: The Final Beginning (2020) | Directed by Brandon Bassham
Five years after The Slashening, 22-year-old Madison Santangeli (Addie Weyrich) moves to Brooklyn to start a new life in the wake of her father’s suicide. But a series of murders committed by a familiar masked killer starts happening around her. Is it coincidence or is someone sending a message?
Slashening: The Final Beginning is the follow-up to Troma’s cult favorite horror comedy, The Slashening, which sees best friends Lucy, Eva, Ashley, Beth and Margot have a sleepover like any other – until murder joins the party. A tale of friendship, betrayal, madness, and the search for some decent dick.
Kill Dolly Kill (2020) | Directed by Heidi Moore
Benji is back! Now living as his alter-ego Dolly Deadly, he’s all grown up and ready to kill…again! Welcome back to the trailer park! Paradise Park that is, where hot rods and barbecue are the order of the day, and punk rock music blasts all night… Throw in a gang of murderous drag queens, and a visit to the psychiatric ward, and you’ll get a taste of the new horror comedy, Kill Dolly Kill, from Director Heidi Moore!
After directing (and writing…and producing) a slew of short films, documentaries, music videos and plays, Heidi Moore bit off her largest endeavor yet; her first feature-length film, Dolly Deadly, the warped tale of self discovery and revenge set in a trailer park dystopia, and has been wildly well received by film festivals, critics and audiences alike.
VHS Massacre Too (2020) | Directed by Thomas Edward Seymour
The last stand of the American exploitation film. In a post video store era, media consolidation has led to the censorship and near death of the independent and exploitation film industry. Joe Bob Briggs (The Last Drive-in), Debbie Rochon (Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger IV), Lloyd Kaufman, and James Rolfe (Angry Video Game Nerd) take us on an adventure that leads from the last Blockbuster video store in Bend Oregon to Troma Entertainment in New York, all in an effort to examine how history keeps repeating itself from the video store era to the modern streaming.
VHS Massacre Too is a follow-up to the five-time award winning VHS Massacre documentary, winner of three Telly Awards, a Gold Remi from World-fest Houston and Best Documentary at Miami Sci-Fi!
Honor Killing (2018) | Directed by Mercedes the Muse
A young woman with no name (Mercedes the Muse) is victim to a savage sexual assault. She is further betrayed when her own family decides the only honorable thing to do is…kill her! But you can’t keep a good woman down. Surviving the botched execution she becomes driven by one thing…revenge! Trained by a shady bounty hunter named Viktor (Jim Schumacher), the woman takes her new skills on the road in search of the man who pulled the trigger…her father! Taking a knife, bullet, and fist to every male obstacle along the way.
Written, starring, and directed by Mercedes the Muse (Rose and Viktor: No Mercy, Hellfire!, Divide & Conquer), Honor Killing is the first grindhouse movie for feminists!
