You’ve been TROMA- tized!

 Like indie film? I mean UBER INDIE, gore core/ camp horror with weird sex scenes and freaky laughs to boot?. You should be watching Troma films!. You might have heard of some of their more famous titles like “The Toxic Avenger” series, or “Tromeo and Juliet”  a punk adaptation of R & J which they promoted with the tag line: “Body Piercing, Kinky Sex, Dismemberment. The Things That Made Shakespeare Great”, or my personal favorite “SURF NAZI’S MUST DIE”….. The father of the world famous Troma studios is writer/director/producer, Lloyd Kaufman. I recently talked to him about his new film; “Poultrygeist, night of the chicken dead” ( LIke I could MAKE THIS STUFF UP?). Some of the titles and the films themselves are mad campy BUT without Troma American Indie film would not exist as they have been doing it themselves without Hollywood backing (aka THE MAN) since 1974. Troma and Lloyd have influenced everyone from Quentin Tarrentino, and Peter Jackson, to Trey Parker and Matt Stone. He’s a fricken riot, a total freak show!. A genuine American treasure located  right in Hell’s Kitchen!. If you have some time check out my interview with Lloyd and see if you can count how many chicken puns he drops during the time we talk!. It’s posted on my page, ENJOY! it’s “EGG-cellent”!

 

 That is all, END TRANSMISSION!
