Thread: Return To The Class Of Nuke'Em High

    Just read an HORRENDOUS review of this movie.....but the reviewer (who said he enjoyed early TROMA stuff) was annoyed because the movie was offensive, childish, badly made, badly acted.....

    pretty much a regular TROMA movie no???

    I think there's a difference between early Troma (for the sake of argument let's say from late 70's with Squeeze Play all the way up until Kabukiman) and later day Troma where the tone is different. I love Terror Firmer (my FAVORITE Troma film by far) and Toxie 1 and 4 and the first Nuk'em High and even Kabukiman when I'm in the mood but I'm just not into Troma's War and Tromeo and Juliet. Different strokes.

    Not much to go on there except the fact that they have 'homaged' Japanese fetish porn with the tentacle stuff......

    Not sure it will be worth sitting through BOTH parts of this though....

    Well, curiosity killed the cat and I took a peak... interpret that as you will. I will say this, the first Nuk'em High is not one of my all time favorites but I enjoy it enough and has a lot of great moments. The sequels felt directionless and had none of the charm of the original.

    This one also felt directionless. We're just following our main characters fucking, masturbating, and being OTT for almost 45 minutes into finally we get the new Cretins and it picks up a bit. 3rd act is pretty decent.

    It feels like Lloyd shot too much footage and decided to make 2 films and pad them out with filler. First film just had a solid plot; it's a high school gang movie punctuated with nuclear mutations and some monster movie shit in the last 15 minutes. As I said, the rest of the films have no plot and feel aimless.

    I feel like Volume 2 is going to be better because it won't have this long set up for the Cretins and some shit is going to go down.

    PS: it's very amusing to see a modern Troma film that actually had some money behind it. The effects work is pretty damn good and not so much in a schlocky way.

    Press release!

    ANCHOR BAY FILMS PRESENTS TROMA LEGEND

    LLOYD KAUFMAN’S RETURN TO DIRECTING WITH

    RETURN TO NUKE ‘EM HIGH, VOL. 1


    Oozing on Blu-ray™ and DVD March 18th!


    BEVERLY HILLS, CA – His name is legendary. He’s created some of the most iconic films and characters in all cinema, including the Toxic Avenger and Sgt. Kabukiman NYPD. His name is Lloyd Kaufman and Anchor Bay’s got him! Anchor Bay Films proudly announces the return of Lloyd Kaufman to the theatrical feature director’s chair with the March 18th Blu-ray™ and DVD release of Return To Nuke ‘Em High, Vol. 1.

    The cast includes Catherine Corcoran (The Lovely Bones), Asta Paredes (Occupy Cannes!), Debbie Rochon (Tromeo and Juliet), Motorhead’s Lemmy Kilmister and introducing Kevin the Wonder Duck! Fresh from exclusive theatrical engagements in New York, Los Angeles and other major markets, and still playing in exclusive theatrical engagements all over the world (while receiving excellent mainstream reviews http://return2nukeemhigh.com/press), Return to Nuke ‘Em High, Vol. 1 – presented in all its director-approved, unrated glory -- graduates with an SRP of $24.99 for the Blu-ray™ and $19.98 for the DVD. Pre-book date is February 19th.

    Welcome to Tromaville High School. Your typical high school populated with your basic football jocks, wannabe prom queens and glee club hopefuls. Did I say “typical?” After all, this is Tromaville High, where the glee club has mutated into the hideous Cretins after eating tainted tacos courtesy of the Tromorganic Foodstuffs Conglomerate. Chrissy and Lauren, two innocent lovers/bloggers, must not only fight the adolescent beasts and freaks, they must also defeat the evil Conglomerate. Will they, along with their mutant pet duck, save Tromaville High and the rest of society? Return to Nuke ‘Em High, Vol. 1 has it all – satire, sci-fi, plenty of Troma’s world famous green goo, themes of anti-bullying and LGBT rights. If that isn’t enough, how about death by glee club, high falls, meltdowns and fiery explosions? Wait there’s more! There’s plenty of exposed teen viscera (and breasts!) and love triumphing over prejudice. Just like The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and “Glee” – only 100% Troma style!


    Return to Nuke’Em High, Vol. 1 was selected by the Museum of Modern Art as part of their prestigious 2013 “Contenders Series,” an annual collection of visionary cinema, selecting influential, innovative films made and released during the year. 2014 also marks the 40th anniversary of Troma Entertainment, the longest surviving independent film label.


    Fans have come to expect in-depth and plentiful bonus features on Troma Entertainment DVD releases. Not to worry, as Return to Nuke ‘Em High, Vol. 1 Blu-ray™ and DVD boasts the following “Troma-tic” extras:

    · Audio Commentary with Actors Zac Amico, Clay von Carlowitz, Catherine Corcoran, Stuart Kiczek and Asta Parades;

    · Audio Commentary with Writer/Producer/Director Lloyd Kaufman, Producer Justin A. Martell, Executive Producer Matt Manjourides, Associate Producer Regina Katz and Writer Travis Campbell;

    · Casting Conundrum;

    · Pre-Production Hell with Mein-Kauf (Man);

    · Special (Ed) Effects;

    · Cell-U-Lloyd Kaufman: 40 Years of TROMAtising The World;

    REALLY?

    That's about as good a review as I was hoping for.

    I will watch this soon!
