Lloyd Kaufman’s SHAKESPEARE’S SHITSTORM Screening Virtually at Fantasia International Film Festival 2020!

Lloyd Kaufman's SHAKESPEARE'S SHITSTORM Screening at Fantasia International Film Festival 2020!

In 1996, Troma adapted Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet as Tromeo and Juliet; effectively a faithful adaptation of the play with a lot more sex and violence. Fast forward to Fantasia 2020, and Troma have the world premiere of another Bard production, this time an adaptation of The Tempest set against the U.S. opioid crisis. Lloyd Kaufman celebrates Troma’s 45th – and his 50th – year of making movies by taking on Big Pharma, addiction, and an intolerance of social media.

“We don’t care about these people’s wellbeing. We just want to get them hooked and sky high! Then have them repeat until they up and die.”
