Invites You to Marché du Film Online 2020

June 22nd – June 26th For more information, please contact either John Ferri ([email protected]) or Thom DeMicco ([email protected]) for more information or to secure a virtual meeting. 
MUTANT BLAST Dir: Fernando Alle / Portugal / 2019 / Action Sci-Fi Comedy

“That human drive towards self-destruction is the film’s principal theme, andis unequivocally reinforced by the bunkered mid-credits coda. It’s a blast alright, and you could die – laughing.” Anton Bitel, Projected Figures

“Up there with The Toxic Avenger, Cannibal the Musical, andPoultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead, Mutant Blast may very well become one of Troma’s cult classics…” Luke Ryan Baldock, The Hollywood News

“…Mutant Blast is the most sheer FUN I’ve had with a genre movie in what feels like an age. It’s gory, irreverent, and just on the right side of bonkers tobe one hell of a crazy ride and one hell of a recommendation.” Phil Wheat, Nerdly

After a scientific experiment goes horribly wrong and the world is turnsinto a zombie apocalypse, a man with superhuman strength, a ferocious,fearless female soldier and a slacker with mean hangover must band togetheras the human race’s only hope for survival against a zombie apocalypse in aworld that’s about to become a nuclear wasteland! Fernando Alle’s debutfeature length film, which dances the line between comedy and horror, is sureto be one of the most exciting and wildest films Troma has ever released!


We look forward to showcasing some of the films of Troma Entertainment in hopes of scheduling virtual meetings to further discuss you interests & The Entire Troma Library! Plus The Latest Films from Troma Entertainment:

Dir: Lloyd Kaufman / USA / 2020 / Comedy

The Opioid Epidemic is destroying America. Legendary director Lloyd Kaufman celebrates Troma’s 45th and his 50th year making movies, by taking on Big Pharma, addiction and the intolerance of social media in #ShakespearesShitstorm. This irreverent musical adaptation of “The Tempest” is ripe with bawdy couplets, Hieronymus Boschian images of excess and unrefined iambic pentameter.”

#ShakepearesShitstorm marks the most ambitious project in Troma’s 45 year history. Working with one of Hollywood’s best special effects companies, Troma brings a whole new experience to their stylized brand. Having a bigger budget also brought about larger scale on-location filming in Albania (a first for narrative feature films in the country) as well as a celestial orchestral score from Portugal and a little help from the Bard. Shakespeare has never been this raw and unfiltered.

Uncle Lloyd Kaufman To Appear on The Last Drive-In With Joe Bob Briggs on Friday, May 15th at 9PM ET! Presenting TROMA’S WAR!

Watch The Last Drive-In With Lloyd Kaufman on Shudder TV!
Use Promo Code TROMA for 30 Day Free Trial!

This season of Shudder’s The Last Drive-In has already seen quite a few notable guests join hosts Joe Bob Briggs and Darcy the Mail Girl as they commentate on double features of horror flicks, including Chris Jericho, Kelli Maroney, Tom Savini and Felissa Rose, and today, Shudder has announced that President of Troma Entertainment and Creator of THE TOXIC AVENGER Lloyd Kaufman will appear on the next episode!

“Toxie and I are great fans (and air conditioners) of Joe Bob Briggs!” said Lloyd Kaufman. “We spoon and watch every episode of ‘The Last Drive-In’ on Shudder. It’s our favorite TV show since’Toxic Crusaders!’ Honored to be a guest!”

“Lloyd has been directing, producing and distributing films for five decades,” said The Last Drive-In host Joe Bob Briggs, “mentoring independent filmmakers for almost as long, and skewering the ruling class with his personal brand of barbed satire for his entire life. He’s not so much a social justice warrior as a social justice gladiator, because a warrior usually has an army and Lloyd has often fought alone. I consider him a friend and one of the most important crusaders against censorship that we have. That doesn’t mean I’m gonna let him off the hook when he enters the drive-in arena Friday night.”

Catch the episode on Friday, May 15, at 9 PM ET when it streams through Shudder TV.
