“People were cheering, yelling, laughing, jumping out of their seats, and just contributing wholeheartedly to the onscreen festivities. It was amazing.”
– Interview Magazine
The Toronto Premiere of Lloyd Kaufman’s latest film “Return to Nuke ‘Em High: Vol. 1” will be on Saturday night, February 1, 2014 at the Carlton Cinema at 9 pm. Rue Morgue Magazine will host the screening as well as an interactive Skype Q&A session with stars Catherine Corcoran, Asta Paredes and Clay von Carlowitz after the film. “Return to Nuke ‘Em High: Vol. 1” has most recently celebrated successful openings in New York and Los Angeles. Here’s what the critics are saying!
Sundance Channel –“…delicious sci-fi horror comedy”
Time Out -3 Stars!
“The films by the fine folks at Lloyd Kaufman’s trashy Troma Entertainment require their own critical scale-consider this one half hilariously awful and half awfully hilarious. As unlikely as it may sound, put in the plus column a whole lotta bad taste: shockingly inappropriate jokes about high-school shootings, Jerry Sandusky and George Zimmerman; a rampaging, radioactive penis that burrows into an unlucky character’s chest cavity and eats his heart. (You know, that sort of thing.) The movie hinges on a lengthy lesbian sex scene between in-on-the-joke leads Asta Paredes and Catherine Corcoran; Blue Is the Warmest Color this ain’t.”
The New York Times –“Powered by ribald bursts of bad taste and bodily fluids… The overall effect is [sic] joyous.”
Come out and celebrate Troma’s 40th Anniversary and see the Tromasterpiece that shocked audiences at the Cannes Film Festival and stunned at the Museum of Modern Art’s “2013 Contenders Series.” Tickets are available now at the box office.
