This Thursday, March 28th from 6 to 8 PM, Troma fans are encouraged to come down to Forbidden Planet to celebrate the release of Troma’s latest home release, ‘Victor Goodview‘ with creators Vincent Turturro and Jerome Rain in attendance, as well as stars Kenny Borland, Tammi Cubilette and Kathleen Morgo!

In the Yonkers ghetto – on the outskirts of New York City – aimless-white boy-millennial Victor finds himself without a job and short on the utility bill. 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…

“What is a low point in life for Victor ends up being a high point for audiences.” – Dakota Dahl, Rue Morgue

“Unflinching, disturbing, and refreshingly un-Hollywood. It makes The Florida Project look like a Disney movie.” – Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru

Lucky 13 Saloon Screens The Hanging Woman for Troma Tuesdays on March 12th!

Scotland’s got some of the best foods: haggis, bangers and mash, and… human flesh?!

When a man travels to Scotland to claim an inheritance left by his deceased uncle, he finds the mad scientist that’s made a home for himself in the basement has been doing some strange experiments with an even stranger assistant… and now these experiments are craving human meat.
Released in 1973, this film was also known as “Orgy of the Dead,” with plot points and moments reminiscent of Re-Animator and Frankenstein that would have any horror fan screaming in terror! Any squeamish attendees will have to repeat It can’t be true… it can’t be true to keep themselves from fainting!
