“Anytime we can get more than one Tromalum in a building we know it’s a special occasion! Trent and Tiffany are two of the most recognized actors in the Troma canon and I can’t wait for them to reveal their grievances about me during the special Q&A!” stated Lloyd Kaufman, President of Troma Entertainment and creator of “The Toxic Avenger”.
The much anticipated “Return to Return to Nuke ‘Em High aka Volume 2” will open in LA at Laemmle’s Ahrya Fine Arts on March 8th at 7:30pm. The film will then screen daily at Laemmle’s NoHo 7 from March 9th – 15th at 9:55PM each night.
Quentin Tarantino has been a fan and friend of Troma for years, and when he suggested to Lloyd Kaufman at the Sitges Film Festival that he should create an “Event Film,” Kaufman took note. “Michael Herz and I decided that to mark Troma’s 40th year we, too, would produce an ‘Event Film’ in two volumes just like Quentin did,” says Kaufman, “except slightly less lavish in the budget area.” 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?
