Troma Entertainment proudly presents the Tromathon of Horror! 8 straight days of Troma’s finest horror films, at the Film Noir Cinema in Brooklyn, NYC from 15th-22nd October. Starting with 1983’s body snatching slasher, Frightmare, featuring the film debut of Jeffery Combs, and ending with Lloyd Kaufman’s 2006 musical TROMAsterpiece of horror, Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead! On October 19th at 9 PM, the multi-talented Brandon Bassham will be in attendance for a special Q&A on during a TROMA-tic double screening of his hit films, The Slashening and Fear Town, USA!
Conrad Radzoff is a horror icon passed his peak, consigned to resurrecting his celebrated cinematic vampire role for a tasteless advertisement for dentures. After he dies, a group of devotees break into his neon-lit, lavish mausoleum and, in a rather misguided attempt to celebrate the life of their idol, nick his body for a farewell shindig at their place – who wouldn’t?! Unfortunately for them, Radzoff was a dab hand at the ol’ black magic and rises from the dead, seeking payback on those who disturbed him.
“There was Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney, and Conrad Ragzoff! They were all stars who lived and died. But only one returned…”
Also known as The Horror Star, the 1983 cult creeper Frightmare offered audiences postmodern shocks long before Wes Craven gave us his game-changing Scream in 1996! An underrated and underseen gem, Frightmare tells of a celebration for a late, great horror star… only the actor in question might not be entirely dead and soon the participants at his supposed party are being picked off one by one!
