Greetings from Tromaville! The Troma Team is proud to announce that Lloyd Kaufman’s latest Tromasterpiece RETURN TO NUKE ‘EM HIGH VOL.1 has been honored with the top prize at Bizarre AC winning the People’s Choice Award for Film of the Year. After two successful screenings and Q and A sessions with the film’s stars Asta Paredes, Catherine Corcoran, Vito Trigo, Clay von Carlowitz, and crew the fans in Atlantic City have officially been Tromatized!
Quentin Tarantino has long been a fan and friend of Troma Entertainment. When he made “Kill Bill” in two volumes to create an ‘Event Film,’ Lloyd Kaufman took note: “Michael Herz and I decided that to mark Troma’s upcoming 40th year, we, too, would produce an ‘Event Film’ in two volumes just like Quentin did,” said Kaufman, “except slightly less lavish in the budget department.”
RETURN TO NUKE ‘EM HIGH VOL.1 & 2, directed by Lloyd Kaufman, is a hilarious, thoughtful sci-fi Event Film with themes ripped straight from today’s headlines: the contamination and degradation of the world’s food supply, rampant bullying and LGBTQ love triumphing over prejudice and violence. The film-a revisiting of Troma’s 1986 Class of Nuke ‘Em High-is in the same vein as other classics such as Class of 1984, Rock ‘n’ Roll High School and Carrie, but it’s seen through the unique vision of Lloyd Kaufman and the Troma Team.
Established in 1974 by Yale friends Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz, Troma Entertainment is one of the longest-running independent movie studios in United States history, and it’s one of the best-known names in the industry. World famous for movie classics like Kaufman’s “The Toxic Avenger”, “Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead”, “Class of Nuke ’em High”, “Mother’s Day” and “Tromeo & Juliet”, Troma’s seminal films are now being remade as big-budget mainstream productions by the likes of Brett Ratner, Richard Saperstein, Akiva Goldsman and Steven Pink. Among today’s luminaries whose early work can be found in Troma’s 800+ film library are Trey Parker, Matt Stone, Jenna Fischer, Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman, Kevin Costner, Fergie, Vincent D’Onofrio, Samuel L. Jackson, James Gunn and Eli Roth. Troma’s latest productions are “Return to Nuke ‘Em High: Volumes 1 & 2”.
