Starburst Magazine have invited Lloyd Kaufman, president of Troma Entertainment and creator of The Toxic Avenger, to the United Kingdom for the 2019 Starburst International Film Festival.
“Greetings from Tromaville!” Lloyd Kaufman, president of Troma Entertainment and creator of The Toxic Avenger, is heading to the United Kingdom on Wednesday, 13th March for a screening of his 1996 Shakespeare-based opus, Tromeo & Juliet at the Deptford Cinema in London. There will also be a special Q&A with Kaufman!
Tromeo & Juliet has been praised by The New York Times as “goofily exhilarating” and “a deliriously grossed-out parody of Shakespeare”.
“Body piercing, kinky sex, dismemberment. The things that made Shakespeare great.”
Let me preface this review by saying that I’m a huge fan of anthology films. Films like Twilight Zone: The Movie, Creepshow, and Tales from the Darkside were among some of my favorites as a kid. Sure, there are some stinkers out there, but they always have at least one gem, one shining moment hidden among the schlock, somewhere.
Vault of Terror II: The Undead was a pretty fun ride from start to finish. We get five short films, given to us as a part of a wrap-around horror story.
“Witness six tales… Each one more horrifying than the last!”
Cinémathèque Française is honoring Lloyd Kaufman, president of Troma Entertainment and creator of The Toxic Avenger, for his 50 years of independent filmmaking. The Cinémathèque will also screen two of Kaufman’s most important films on January 4th, in Paris, France with Kaufman himself in attendance.
The Max Linder Panorama Theater is also screening The Toxic Avenger in its uncut glory on January 3rd.
“The first superhuman-hero… from New Jersey!”
From November 30th to December 2nd, Lloyd Kaufman will be a guest at Kentucky’s Supercon, where he’ll be screening the long-awaited Return to Return to Nuke ‘Em High AKA Vol. 2. Joining him will be writer, director, and documentarian Heidi Moore, known for her critically praised, LGBTQ-centric horror film Dolly Deadly, which is being distributed by Troma Entertainment.
“Michael Herz and I believe Heidi Moore will be up there with Troma alums Matt Stone and Trey Parker, James Gunn, Eli Roth and the many other stars who have emerged from the loins of Troma Entertainment!“
Lloyd Kaufman, president of Troma Entertainment and creator of The Toxic Avenger, will be a special guest of honor at the New York Comic Con between the 5th-8th October 2017 at the Javits Center. Literally take a knee with Lloyd Kaufman and the Troma Team, only at NYCC Troma Booth #429.
“In this time of political outrage and SJW rhetoric, we need events like NYCC to bring us all together in civil discourse and sex and violence!”
Swedish musician Thomas Nyholm, under the moniker of Islandrocks, creates these insanely good cover versions of exploitation, cult classic theme songs, such as City of the Living Dead (1980), Zombie Flesh Eaters (1979), Suspiria (1977), The Toxic Avenger (1986) and The New York Ripper (1982).
“We are going to dance the Fulci way! Zombie …the funk are among us!”
Troma fanatics, collectors of underground art and East Coast skaters will want to shred their way to Troma Booth #429 for the NYCC release of The Toxic Avenger skateboard decks printed by RiotStyle; west coast skateboard manufacturer and punk rock icons. Skate or Die! The 29″ Popsicle style deck is dipped in white paint and printed with a gloriously detailed tribute to Toxie.
“I love the Monster Hero” more than I love my parents!

“Greetings from Tromaville!”
It’s the 80’s, it has teenagers and it’s set in a high school, all the ingredients you need for a traditional 80’s teen high school movie. But this is a Troma production, so don’t expect your normal run-of-the-mill fayre here, oh no. Add in some gore, gorse-out moments, sex, drugs, biker gangs and basement dwelling radioactive monsters and you’ll be on the right track.
Troma brings us one of its classic movies, and riding high on the success of The Toxic Avenger, comes the delights of Class of Nuke ‘Em High…
