May brings May-hem to Troma Now with World Premiere of Moonshine Meat Market Mayhem
Plus Standards of Living (shot on an iPad!) and The Arc of Methul May 1st 2017
 
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
Welcome to the end of times. Moonshine Meat Market Mayhem is streaming on 
 
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. 
 
 
This is no laughing matter. Standards of Living is streaming on Troma Now!
 
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.
 
The Arc of Methul  is streaming on Troma Now!
 
Also coming to Troma Now is Charles Davis’s The Arc of Methul.  The Arc of Methul distinguishes itself by being the only film on Troma Now that is a paranormal adventure story told through still image photography and audio.
 

Several other films will also be added to the streaming service, including Class of Nuke ‘Em High Part 3: The Good, The Bad, The Subhumanoid, Class of Nuke ‘Em High Part 3: The Good, The Bad, The Subhumanoid with Fan Commentary, Ninja Pussycat, Glass Jungle, Cause of Death, Ferocious Female Freedom Fighters 2, L.A.

April is Comedy Month on Troma Now with World Premiere of Jones and Shamah’s Worst Laid Plans*

Troma Entertainment is proud to announce the acquisition of Mark Jones and CB Shamah’s gut-busting, hilarious, one of a kind comedy Worst Laid Plans which is set to have its World Premiere on Troma Now April 1st.  Worst Laid Plans is a sharply hilarious story about four friends who find themselves in dire straits when they get behind in rent. They hatch a plan to come up with some quick cash…but their biggest obstacle is not killing each other first.

Displaying

Ernie, Max and Nick are tattoo artists who, along with piercer Vit, own A-1 Tattoo. Ernie has the unfortunate task of letting the guys know that they are behind on their rent with no solution in sight. After being humiliated by their landlord, Max comes up with a plan and the guys are convinced it’s the only way they’re going to save their shop. The plan: scan the sex-for-pay ads, set up a meeting with the most perverted and rob them. As things start to spiral out of control, it’s not just the plan but the guys’ friendship that begins to unravel. 

With their shop on the verge of closing, a landlord breathing down their necks and a corpse on their hands, Max, Ernie, Vit and Nick can’t help but wonder: maybe they should never have become friends. And maybe, just maybe, they shouldn’t be friends anymore.
Trailer found here: Worst Laid Plans Trailer
 
After a lengthy sojourn traveling around the United States, working on sets and collecting experiences, CB Shamah settled in the Pacific NW attending the Seattle Film Institute with a focus on cinematography. Since then CB has shot a ton of live music, produced the web series “This Week at the Columbia City Theater”, has camera credits for A Visitor In The Night, Measure Of Comfort and was Cinematographer/Producer for the feature Spree. CB also co-directed and co-produced the Emmy-nominated Welcome To Doe Bay and the live music documentary, Lemolo: A Beautiful Night.
 
 
Mark Jones began writing short stories, completing his first screenplay in his teens. After graduating from high school, he would go on to receive a BA in Creative Writing from Rowan University in Glassboro, NJ, then attended the Seattle Film Institute in Seattle, Washington. Upon graduation, Mark returned to his native New Jersey to direct and produce his horror-comedy screenplay, Spree. Spree screened at several festivals throughout 2007 and was picked up and distributed via Brain Damage Productions. Since that first feature, Mark has created, wrote and starred in the web series, This Week at Columbia City Theater. He was a cinematographer on the documentary Welcome to Doe Bay, and filmed and produced a reality television pilot titled The Shop, which is the influence for his latest screenplay, Worst Laid Plans.
