“Troma has always been an influencing factor on me and, in turn, upon Hyaena. As a teenager, those early films were essential viewing among my circle of friends. They were gross, gory, over the top, and just plain fun. They were so against the grain from what other mainstream studios were putting out. And Lloyd, himself, is such an encouraging presence for anyone who is creative. His books illustrated the DIY aesthetic that Hyaena was founded on, and his films show those principles in action. That’s what always struck me regarding Troma…the idea that you can make things happen on your own, dictate your own taste level, not have to ask anyone for permission, and ultimately create something memorable. We’re honored to pay tribute to the Nuke ‘Em High legacy and Troma Films. They’re still going strong, and we wouldn’t be here without ’em.”- Bill Shafer, owner of Hyaena Gallery
