Troma Now, Troma Entertainment’s exclusive premium World Premiere content streaming service, celebrates May-hem with the World Premieres of Charlie Cadillac’s monstrous Moonshine Meat Market Mayhem, along with the Troma Now Premieres of Aaron Mento’s Standards of Living and Charles Davis’s The Arc of Methul on May 1, 2017, it was announced today by Lloyd Kaufman, President of Troma Entertainment and creator of The Toxic Avenger.
After the Third World War the Earth was plunged into chaos. The last remnants of humanity were forced to survive by any means possible. The nuclear fallout that riddled the world destroyed the livestock and poisoned the water. Even the living are dying of radioactive cancer. But, even death is not the end! There is no afterlife when the dead begin to walk!
The world belongs to these undead creatures called Cancer Dancers. The only saving grace left for man comes in the form of moonshine. Without it, you will thirst, for water you cannot drink. Welcome to the end of times.
Shot entirely on an iPad 2, Standards of Living tells the story of Peter, a struggling comedian who takes part in a teleportation experiment that ‘improves’ whatever cargo is being teleported…but the results are no laughing matter.
Written and directed by Aaron Mento and produced by Ocular Migraine Productions, Standards of Living stars Scott Yarborough (Peter Sayer), Bill Ferris (Mr. Randall) and Derek Houck (Stu) in a genre-bending adventure that leaves audiences wondering how much weirder and darker Peter’s journey could possibly get.
Standards of Living is Mento’s first feature-length film. Mento previously wrote and co-created “TV FACE,” the Internet’s first feature-length horror web series, which was nominated for a 2007 Webby Award. His feature-length screenplay “Survival High” was a Top 10 Finalist at the Cinequest Screenplay Competition in 2009. Mento established Ocular Migraine Productions in 2011.
Also coming to Troma Now is Charles Davis’s The Arc of Methul.
Several other films will also be added to the streaming service, including
