Get Ready To Go Back to School as Troma and Beat Kitchen Proudly Present a #FanTOXIC Creature Double Feature of The Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz Classics


Class of Nuke ‘Em High Directed by Richard W. Haines, Michael Herz, Lloyd Kaufman Starring Janelle Brady, Gil Brenton, Robert Prichard

CLASS OF NUKE EM HIGH, the timeless classic of readin’, writin’ and radiation, is available for the first time ever in this unrated Director’s Cut. 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! 

The Director’s Cut of CLASS OF NUKE ‘EM HIGH has been lovingly restored by co-director Lloyd Kaufman (who developed the film during detention) and the Troma Team. Never-before-seen footage (found in the Tromaville High School’s girls’ bathroom) has been added. The film includes a special introduction from the Tromaville Cafe featuring Toxie, Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D, The Tromettes, and Lloyd Kaufman.

“…its special effects are suitably disgusting and Richard W. Haines and Samuel Weil, who directed it, and the writers of the screenplay are clearly all people of welcome, anarchic humor.”– Vincent Canby, New York Times

“…the best aspect of The Class of Nuke ‘Em High is the celluloid snapshot it provides of a time and place from the past…its use of certain fashion and cultural linchpins sure keep it locked alongside the birth of MTV and the rise of the repugnant Moral Majority…with a last act beastie that stands as one of Troma’s most accomplished and compelling.” – Bill Gibron, Pop Matters

“A swaggering bulldozer of a flick.” – Cliff Mott, Cracked Magazine


Class of Nuke ‘Em High 2: Subhumanoid Meltdown
Directed by Eric Louzil, Donald G. Jackson
Starring Brick Bronsky, Lisa Gaye, Leesa Rowland

First there was the super successful, now classic, theatrical smash hit and breakthrough blockbuster CLASS OF NUKE ‘EM HIGH!  Now, there comes the riotous sci-fi, hyper-action, big budget, ambitious sequellian comedy, Troma’s CLASS OF NUKE ‘EM HIGH PART II: SUBHUMANOID MELTDOWN!  Those lovable cretins from CLASS OF NUKE ‘EM HIGH! have graduated Summa Cum Weirdly and the once peaceful town of Tromaville is about to explode with a wave of sci-fi and special effects induced SUBHUMANOID MELTDOWN!  Welcome to the Tromaville Institute of Technology, where a melt-down prone nuclear power-plant creates a hideously deformed but very positive thinking humongous mutant squirrels and obnoxious talking belly buttons with bad attitudes. 

In this incredibly bold adventure in gene-splicing, anarchy and terror rule the campus of Tromaville Tech as the students join forces with the subhumanoids to overthrow the insidious and hedonistic corporate slime responsible for a wave of malicious mutant meltdowns and massacres.  Will peace and environmental hygiene ever be restored to the once-peaceful town of Tromaville?  Find out as you enroll for the education of a lifetime in CLASS OF NUKE ‘EM HIGH PART II: SUBHUMANOID MELTDOWN!

“…if you’re a Troma fan and like women with “melon heavy breasts”, then CLASS OF NUKE ‘EM PART II is worth attending for a semester.”– Freddie Young, Full Moon Reviews

“…Basically if you love vintage Troma …this one delivers the goods and does a decent job as a follow up to the beloved original.”
– Nathaniel Thompson, Mondo Digital

Presented by Troma Entertainment and Beat Kitchen
