It was announced today by Tromadance Program Director Jonathan Lees that the feature film selections for the Tromadance Film Fesitval (April 22-23 in Asbury Park, NJ) will be Drew Bolduc and Dan Nelson's The Taint, Joshua Grannell's All About Evil, and the East Coast premiere of Miguel Angel Vivas' Kidnapped.
Undoubtedly the modern independent horror landscape would be a very different place had Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz not taken a gamble on making a horror film in the 1980s. Kaufman, seeing the potential to reach horror fans everywhere, unleashed The Toxic Avenger in 1985, and the horror world has been a very different place ever since Toxie hit the streets.
Chances are, if you’re an avid reader of Dread Central, then you are very familiar with Lloyd Kaufman, creator of Troma Entertainment and vocal supporter of both net neutrality and independent filmmaking. That’s why when this writer was putting together her coverage for DC’s Indie Horror Month celebration, Kaufman was at the top of the list of people I definitely wanted to chat with.
Today, folks? Today is a good day. Not only is Zombie Holocaust hitting Blu-ray in April, but word has just broken that Troma will be releasing the original Mother's Day onto Blu-ray high definition in June. Can you think of better news to kick off the week?
Hey, indie horror filmmakers out there - looking for festivals to submit your genre film to but are tired of paying insane entry fees? Then why not submit your movie for the 12th Annual TromaDance Film Festival, being held in Asbury Park, NJ this upcoming April 22-23.
It's been a while since last we brought you anything on the new Troma flick Father's Day, but that's about to be rectified. How does some artwork, the first still, and a teaser trailer sound to ya?
While Toxie himself is nowhere to be found, some images from the set of the now shooting The Toxic Avenger 5: Toxic Twins have surfaced online displaying a couple of the flick's many assets.
Back in 2000 Troma released Chad Ferrin's Unspeakable, and now the writer/director is making the flick available for any and all to see via the magic of YouTube. Read on for the synopsis of this disturbing and surreal horror film, and then kick off your weekend with a viewing of Unspeakable.
After a series of really questionable sequels that to date have never matched the absurdity of the original film, Troma's first super-hero from New Jersey is primed and ready for a remake.
If there's a movie about zombie werewolves on the attack it only figures Troma would be involved with it somehow. Indeed. One look at the trailer for Zombie Werewolves Attack! and you'll see why Troma picked up the distribution rights.
There's no doubt that Ike and Addley made their mama very proud in the Eighties in Charles Kaufman’s classic slice of sick Mother's Day, and now the fine folks over at Troma are looking to bring mayhem to another parental figure.
It's been a long, hard road for everyone's favorite misshapen superhero from New Jersey to get his fifth film released, but as of today we are one step closer to getting our mitts on The Toxic Avenger 5: The Toxic Twins!
Even though Troma Entertainment's Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead had a relatively small theatrical run at around three hundred theatres nationwide, it still managed to garner itself a #1 per-theater average. To say thank you to fans, the full movie has hit online, and you can now watch it for free! Take that, all you cheapskates out there!
Yep! It's happening! The Titan of Tromaville will soon be gearing himself up for a big budget remake that's likely to change the face of tutu wearing mop wielding deformed mutant super heroes forever!
With everyone remaking everything nowadays, is it really a shock that filmmakers would be looking to the wellspring of flicks put out by Lloyd Kaufman's ever so indie and slightly unhinged company? Nope. Not at all.
