THE TOXIC AVENGER w/ Lloyd Kaufman!
February 27: 630pm
The Toxic Avenger
with Lloyd Kaufman in person!
Michael Herz, Lloyd Kaufman / 1984, USA / Color / 35mm / 87min
We're proud to present a special 35mm screening of Troma's gory, hilarious masterpiece, The Toxic Avenger, with Troma co-founder Lloyd Kaufman in attendance! In Tromaville, NJ, awkward mop boy Melvin just wants to fit in with the popular crowd. When a prank goes bad, he winds up wearing a tutu head first in a vat of toxic waste, transforming him into the lumpy, lopsided Toxic Avenger. With his trusty mop, he exacts revenge on his tormenters, battles a corrupt mayor and falls in love.
"Cruddy, primal, extremely violent, and fairly entertaining, it captures some of the snot-flicking spirit of the old EC comics." Dave Kehr
"[It] may be trash, but it has a maniacally farcical sense of humor, and Tromaville's evildoers are dispatched in ingenious ways." NY Times
Wed: 630pm w/ Lloyd Kaufman introduction!
Lloyd will also be at Scarecrow Video for a signing at 430pm! This is a separate event.
