“Oddly amiable” yet “icky as ever!”- Glenn Kenny, The New York Times

After news broke out that Troma’s lesbian love story, ‘Return to Return to Nuke ‘Em High AKA Vol. 2’ was going to premiere in the prestigious New York City Film Noir Cinematickets sold out almost instantly, despite opening against the mighty “Avengers: Endgame!” Thankfully, the good folks at Film Noir Cinema have added one last special encore screening on Saturday, May 18th at 8 PM with director Lloyd Kaufman in attendance for a special Q&A! Fans who missed the previous theatrical run can now enjoy the film.


On May 18th at 8 PM, Kaufman’s highly acclaimed Tromasterpiece will be shown the way it was always meant to be seen- uncensored and on the big screen! The Film Noir Cinema has programmed “Return to Return to Nuke ‘Em High AKA Vol. 2” along with one-of-a-kind masterpieces, like ‘Lords of Chaos,’ ‘The House That Jack Built’ and ‘Climax!’ Kaufman will be in attendance for a special Q&A after the film!

“Its outrageous imagery brings to light the absurdity we’re currently up against as a society dealing with all sorts of turmoil.”-LA Weekly

“The fluorescent fluids fly fast and furiously… it gets only wilder from there.”-LA Times

“This might be Kaufman’s angriest polemic yet… bless him and Troma for making a movie that’s so aggressively unclean.”- Simon Abrams, Rogerebert.com

“Return to Return to Nuke Em High AKA Vol. 2, is Troma’s most manic magnum opus yet… It’s right and righteous.”-Film Threat

Troma Tuesdays In Brooklyn, NY and Toronto, CA Now Showing ‘The Taint’ on May 14th at 9 PM with Director Q&A!

Compared to this, the people in Flint, Michigan have it easy!

Water replenishes us, provides oxygen and gives us life… but this new batch is causing the deaths of women everywhere! When a tainted water supply turns men into misogynistic, women-killing psychopaths, it’s up to Phil, a man untainted by the water, and Misandra, a badass misogynist-killer to castrate an entire horde of dangerous men and find out what’s caused the water to become tainted!

Director Drew Bolduc presents a brutal but mostly hilarious horror comedy unlike anything Troma has ever released before! With a killer 80’s style soundtrack, seamless CGI and outrageously over the top violence, THE TAINT is a tall drink you’ll want to have! The director himself will be in attendance at the Film Noir Cinema along with other guests to answer questions about the making of this film!

Troma Tuesday screenings are continuing in Brooklyn’s Film Noir Cinema and Toronto’s Grand Gerrard Theatre! Film Noir admission is only $5, Grand Gerrard Theatre admission is free, and both showings start at 9 PM!

Troma Tuesdays In Toronto, CA Now Showing ‘Gutboy: A Badtime Story’ on May 7th at 9 PM!

The best marionette movie since the one by the guys that made Cannibal the Musical!

Goot was once a regular man with beautiful skin… until an evil capitalist bought it for only three dollars, leaving Goot without his skin or dignity! Robbed of his livelihood, Goot meets a mermaid in a chance encounter, and she wants revenge. Together, they team up to prank the corrupt forces of law, order and the free market… to DEATH!

Director Nick Grant presents a “badtime” story like no other with this original and gorgeous film, told entirely through the art of puppetry with beautifully designed marionettes and hand painted sets that transport the viewer to another world!

‘Victor Goodview’ on April 23rd at 9 PM and ‘Story of a Junkie’ in Sydney, AU at 8:30 

Victor Goodview is young, unemployed, and constipated… and no one cares how it all comes out!

Things aren’t looking so good for Victor Goodview! Aimless millennial Victor finds himself without a job, short on the utility bill and to make matters more… uncomfortable, he hasn’t had a bowel movement in longer than he can remember. Victor seeks solace by making friends of dubious character, smoking crack of dubious quality, and pursuing women of dubious intent. As Victor readies himself for his desperately needed dead-end job interview, the consequences of his lifestyle catch up with him…

Screened at prestigious festivals and praised by some of the most popular movie review publishings in America, this highly acclaimed film was created by New York natives Vincent Turturro and Jerome Raim, who will both be in attendance for a special Q&A after the screening (Film Noir only)!

Troma Tuesday screenings are continuing in Brooklyn’s Film Noir Cinema and Toronto’s Grand Gerrard Theatre! Admission for Film Noir Cinema is only $5, free at the Grand Gerrard Theatre, and every showing starts at 9 PM!

International Troma Tuesdays In Brooklyn & Toronto Now Showing “Story of a Junkie” on April 9th at 9 PM!

Forget Trainspotting and Requiem For a Dream; this is the real deal. Put this in your Big Apple and smoke it!

He’s no plumber, but he’s pushing down on a plunger, alright! When Gringo emigrates from Los Angeles to the Big Apple, he searches for his family and a life of fortune and fame. Unfortunately, he finds nothing but misery and addiction as he’s pulled into a world of heroin junkies.

This movie has been hailed by many as one of the best films Troma has ever released, and continues to have a cult following thirty years after its release. A documentary more insightful than any movie about drugs can attempt to be, ‘Story of a Junkie’ is one of the most ultimate anti-drug films that will leave any viewer (un)comfortably numb.

Troma Tuesday screenings are continuing in Brooklyn’s Film Noir Cinema, and now the Grand Gerrard Theatre in Toronto, Canada! Every screening now starts at 9 PM, and admission is completely FREE!
