TOXIE-N-LLOYD
RTNH VOL1 POSTER    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 seen through the unique vision of Lloyd Kaufman and
the Troma Team. Welcome to Tromaville High School where, unfortunately, the
glee club has mutated into a vicious gang of Cretins. Chrissy and Lauren, two
innocent lesbian lovers, must fight not only the Cretins, mutants and monsters
but also the evil Tromorganic Foodstuffs Conglomerate. Can they and Kevin the
Wonder Duck save Tromaville High School and the world?

The five beautiful Van Houten Sisters are the emotional and professional backbone of the little town called Mansionville.
Unfortunately for the town, they also happen to be gleefully psychopathic murderers.This insane and hilarious movie was made for all the critics who complain that the “Saw” movies are torture-porn – with any luck, their heads will explode when they watch “Captured Hearts”.
Starring Robert Loggia (SCARFACE, INDEPENDENCE DAY), Dustin Diamond (“Saved By The Bell”),
Suzi Lorraine (SORDID STATE), Rachael Robbins (SCREAMING DEAD), with Tony Todd (CANDYMAN) as “God”,
and Charles Durning (TOOTSIE, O’BROTHER WHERE ART THOU) as “Santa Claus”.And yes, you read that last part correctly.

“Co-director Shade Rupe in attendance,”

PLAY_DEAD_27x40

“ Play Dead” is inspired by the American spook show, an underground entertainment that thrived from the 1930s to the 1970s.  It was quite an experience for fans of Grand Guignol, and we’ve been told we’ve done a fair job of conveying that onscreen. Expect brutal onstage beatings, nubile nudity, and chunks of the show performed in absolute darkness. Even the exit signs go off! Be welcome, and BEWARE!
