When first released in theaters in 1986, “Class of Nuke’Em High” became an instant sensation. Its unique blend of horror and humor was cheered by audiences and celebrated by critics. The film spawned two sequels and legions of fans. At Tromaville High School, located a stone’s throw from the local Nuclear Power Plant, the students are getting brighter. In fact, they’re beginning to develop a Troma-green glow. Innocent students mutate into sex-crazed psychos, the Honor Society’s turned into carnivorous, kinky cretins, and the slimy monster stalking the hallways isn’t the principal!

PROPOGANDA NEW ORLEANS REVIEW OF RETURN TO NUKE’EM HIGH VOL.1

“There was a wonderful line of dialogue from an early episode of the biting cartoon The Boondocks that I’d like to share. The scene follows the protest of a lemonade stand that is being recklessly exploited by a corrupt businessman. To calm everyone down, the evil tycoon closes down the stand and unveils a “cruelty free” beverage, which the crowd blindly accepts. One protester states, “You know it’s cruelty free, ‘cause it says so on the label.” It’s quick, it’s harsh and it hits the mark perfectly.

Troma’s latest release, Return to Nuke Em High: Volume 1, takes the attitude of that line and stretches it out for 90 minutes. Of course, to those familiar with this independent film studio, it’s not surprising; they’ve had this mood for several decades. But where Boondocks and Troma differ is in the delivery. Where the cartoon is angry, the film studio is regurgitating and laughing.” READ MORE
