Lloyd Kaufman and Troma Bid Farewell to Lemmy Kilmister: King of the Cameo and Monster of Metal

Lemmy (Left) and Lloyd Kaufman have been friends and collaborators for over 20 years.

he loss of Motörhead  legend Lemmy Kilmister on December 28, 2015 had a significant impact at the Troma Films studio in Queens, NY. Lemmy had come to be known as a regular on Troma movie sets for twenty years. It would be an understatement to say that Lemmy truly understood Troma’s artistic intentions and his collaboration and support bolstered the cinema experience for creators and audiences alike. A longtime friend of Lloyd Kaufman, prexy of Troma Entertainment and creator of, ” The Toxic Avenger”, Lemmy Kilmister has been a featured celebrity cameo in Troma productions as well as a generous musical contributor. Upon hearing the news of Lemmy’s passing, Kaufman said;
“Although Lemmy was one of the greatest rock-n-roll pioneers in history,  with an enormous following, Lemmy was always a supporter of the genuine  artist and the underdog. On a personal level he always made time to generously appear in Troma movies, no matter how deep in the underground. The Troma Team and I have very few sincere friends in the mainstream so to lose Lemmy makes us all especially sad. He was a super shit-disturber and was a great role model for all us shit-disturbers.”

Long Lost Charles Dickens Novella Unearthed by Troma Archivist

Results in a Movie, a Parade, and a Hellraising Comedy Show.

 When Charles Dickens was informed he would not be able to publish A Halloween Carol, he stated, “It was the worst of times, it was the best of times… or something”

Greetings from Tromaville! A Troma Entertainment archivist has unearthed the long lost Charles Dickens novella A HALLOWEEN CAROL. When 19th century focus groups found his initial story “too spooky”, Mr. Dickens was forced to rethink his story and shift holidays, resulting in A Christmas Carol, which went on to moderate success.

Thankfully, Troma has unearthed the lost manuscript and adapted it into a short film produced for Youtube Space: A HALLOWEEN CAROL: PUMPKIN SPICE EXTRA SPOOKY EDITION. Written and Directed by Lily-Hayes Kaufman, with cinematography from Charlotte Kaufman, the short features Lloyd Kaufman, Catherine Corcoran, Asta Paredes, and the one and only Toxic Avenger!!!
Because of this, the Toxic Avenger has been named as an honorary member of the TOXIC TUTU parade, held by the makers of the mockumentary chronicling the life and times of Mark Torgl (Melvin the Mopboy from the original Toxic Avenger). Starting at 4 pm on Halloween night, they will take to the streets of NYC to celebrate Troma and the holiday. Details can be found at http://www.toxictutu.com/, come out and support good people having a good time!!
Later Halloween night, Tromians in NYC can go to The People’s Improv Theater at 11 o’clock to see Welcome to Hell, hosted by Vincent Welles, Master of the Occult! Vincent is accompanied by his werewolf sidekick and band leader Warren Talbot as well as notable guests, including the Toxic Avenger himself! The show will also feature clips from the new RETURN TO RETURN TO NUKE EM HIGH AKA VOL. 2! All info can be found at https://thepit-nyc.com/event/2015-10-31-welcome-to-hell-helloween-spooktacular.
